I had the opportunity to interview Anthony. Here’s what He had to say:
Hey Anthony! What is your personal definition of success?
Anthony: Being truly happy with what you do!
What is one thing you wish you had known when you were starting out?
Anthony: Taking advantage of free networking events.
We often hear stories that make it seem like someone was an overnight success when really there were setbacks and stumbles along the way. Why do you think it’s valuable to be candid about both failure and success?
Anthony: Wins, and loses are inevitable. However, you can’t get to low or too high. Stay humble, determined, and consistent, and in the end the failures wouldn’t even matter.
What’s the best advice you have ever received?
Anthony: Growth will never take place in your comfort zone.
What inspired you to start entrepreneurship?
Anthony: Just wanted to not only supply for myself, but for my family, and achieve financial freedom.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started your journey?
Anthony: Most interesting story would be stumbling into a hookah business that I along with 2 others owned for about a year. I operated it in a club, and it was successful however not something I no longer wanted to be a part of. The nightlife dedication took away from my other endeavors that I cared about more. I recently resigned in January 2019. Not once did I ever think I would have operated in that space, but it was fun while it lasted.
What is the best way for someone to reach you if they are interested in working with you?
