The Heartbeat of an Entrepreneur

We are faced with challenging situations daily. And each of these experiences help shape who we are as individuals.  It is through the fire we become refined and through this refinement we become who we are destined to be.

The Heartbeat of an Entrepreneur is an inspirational keynote I presented at San Diego Startup Week where I shared my personal struggle with abuse, racism, and suicidal thoughts and how I overcome these challenges through resiliency, sacrifice, self-reflection, and finding my passion.

If you have gone through trying times in your life, this keynote is worth a listen.  Remember, you can accomplish anything you put your mind too.
