My name’s Edmond.
I’m just a regular guy, playing the role of an entrepreneur, and learning to surf life’s waves.
The “official business-story” starts when I was 21, and fascinated with the idea of becoming self-sufficient. Living alone, and still – for the most part – confused about life, I dared to start my first official business.
It was in February of 2012, I beat my excuse to the punch. Before I could convince myself of a reason not to, I drove down to the city, and took the first steps to registering a business.
I had no idea what I was signing up for.
At the time, I was probably thinking that I’m just experimenting – playing a game. “Buying some things – then selling them. Simple“.
With less than $200, and zero business connections, knowledge, or experience, I managed to build a successful company in wholesale and eCommerce.
This business became the dojo where my skills and abilities were put to a real-life test.
Thinking back, I don’t think I would have ever taken a step forward if I continued thinking in the same ways I used to…
– the same way the majority does.
The self-actualization that an individual can experience on the lonely journey of an entrepreneur is truly remarkable.
Growing up educated within the Los Angeles public schools system, I never thought I’d see the world the way I do today.
Half-way through my studies in college, about 50 something units in, I had to face a tough fact – regular institutions weren’t exactly catering to my present day needs.
The modern-day school system wasn’t going to help me create the life I really wanted.
I found peace of mind having faith that clues from another’s entrepreneurial experience would guide me to – in a way – adjust to the sails of my own life’s wind.
Reading various philosophies, and repeatedly hearing “what’s outside is a reflection of the inside,” I realized that our greatest assets remain within us.
So for guidance and knowledge, my attention was drawn towards the mental attitudes of other great people, and the lessons left behind from their own experiences.
Today, I’m incredibly grateful for the level of value I’m able to deliver; but more so, for the tidbits of truth – which continue to shave off parts of my perspective that no longer belong.
I realize I would have never had this privilege if I didn’t become aware of my only responsibility – the responsibility over the way I think, and the stories I tell myself in my own mind.
I want to say that I’m wholeheartedly appreciative of your attention here.
