Originally a Chemical Engineering grad student, I became an entrepreneur in my mid 20’s, participated in entrepreneurship contests, and launched a very innovative Start-Up in the education field. Then, when I came back from Silicon Valley, I opened a Hostel in Spain after sensing a business opportunity when my former landlord was looking for ways to make more profits out of his buildings. As I speak several languages I found the Hotel industry to be very tempting and profitable so I continued developing and managing properties until I decided to deal with a knowledge gap that undermined my full potential in creating prosperity: Finance. I wanted to evolve and become a certified financial advisor and ever since then my life has changed completely. The way I look at issues, the way I plan initiatives, the way I see life. Wealth management can be engineered to produce financial freedom, and all it takes is a couple of good decisions, smart planning, and a specific mindset. This is why Start Ups are also a very attractive way to increase wealth and create prosperity for the specific environment.
