He tells us how his first-ever business was a paper route with his father, the business that molded his entrepreneurial spirit. The business started at a time when he wanted a bicycle like all his friends at the time, but unlike his friends, who easily got what they wanted
He had the responsibility to find a way to buy the bicycle himself, so his dad suggested he write down a business plan. This was his first encounter with business development.

He discusses how to reach the main people you need to be discussing your business while avoiding gatekeepers, and a thing or two about deligating.
One thing he notes about deligating is that in the early stages of a business’s running it is advisable to do things yourself, giving yourself a new role to play every day.
He also explains how transparency, diversity, and an inclusive leadership style could make your employees and business work better.
