I have a huge passion for teaching kids entrepreneurship because they are going to be our future tomorrow. We are all going to run the world someday, so if we get started at 4, 8 or 9, then we can apply everything we already know and really save the world.

I’ve learned you can’t just get whatever you want – you gotta work for it. When you set a goal, make a plan and work hard, success happens.
