    Before that, he built a company that was recognized by Inc. Magazine for 4 years in a row as one of the fastest growing companies in America by using the tactics he later included in his books, and most importantly, by bridging the gap of generational thinking and acting to stay ahead of the market crash trends way in advance in order to combine all into one business plan for immediate success.
