Jeffrey, what’s an Interestingly weird fact about yourself?
How I determined I became an entrepreneur.
My first experience was I sold eggs.
I grew up in the country, I was 14 years old and had a bright idea looking at the market and said, “Who don’t need eggs.”
Started selling eggs driving house to house at age 14.
How did your journey as an entrepreneur all begin?
I was actually a really shy kid who did things on my own and got into photography.
All through high school I was into photography.
After high school I went off to photography school.
My 1st paid job as a photographer was from the Roosevelt estate in New York.
Got out of photography school which had lil’ education to do with it.
Within 2 years of photography business I realized it wasn’t ever going to happen.
So moved to an affluent town in Connecticut.
All came down to being really aligned to values and needs of the community.
I just wanted to service.
I’ve always given credit to people I photographed.
Built my coaching practice, about 5 years ago after finished coaching training.
I finally took ownership of my own success.
