Whatever path you choose, whatever direction you want to take your life, don’t focus only on yourself. Try to serve others in some sort of way.

My road in life has been direct.
I’ve always been pretty ambitious and entrepreneurial—in fact, I started my first entrepreneurial endeavor in college.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in finance and entrepreneurship from Indiana Wesleyan University.
While working at a startup and helping it scale up, I oversaw a lot of the internal operations and experienced firsthand the challenges of recruiting and hiring.
After identifying phone interviews as a major pain point of the recruiting process, I set out to find a way to make it more efficient.
I took the issue to my brother, who was also facing similar challenges in his work, and together we created Qualifi, a virtual hiring platform that helps improve the interview process for recruiters.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

I’m an entrepreneur and I don’t think being an entrepreneur requires a degree. However, it can help depending on what sort of business you want to start. So I’d recommend following your interests and what you're good at, and as you gain experience in the world, it may spark an idea and the know-how to get a business started.
