ABOUT ME

I’m an entrepreneur at heart but a terrible businessman. You may be wondering what does that exactly mean? Well, I started my first business at the age of 15 selling speakers, decals, subwoofers, etc., pretty much anything that involved cars. I saw the need in my school for something like that since other kids were starting to drive and buying their first cars. The problem was and still is, I have a thing about being dishonest, I just can’t do it. When I would see the wholesale prices of the items I couldn’t bring myself to sell them at retail. Lucky, being 15 years old I didn’t have any expenses. However, I didn’t make much money so that didn’t last long.

In college, I tried opening a business again by starting a club promotion company. It went pretty well but then I met a girl and the club scene is not where you want to be when you’re in a relationship. Finally, my last solo attempt at a business was a couple years back called Enlightening Tech & Designs which did really good except I really had a problem when it came to collecting payments. Not a good problem to have when you’re a business owner. So one day after doing a job for a client, they informed me their company was hiring and referred me. I got the job and closed the tech/design business.

Oh, I forgot to mention I’m also co-founder of three other companies. A movie/game review site called Review Junkies and two Youtube channels, GoNattsu and Knowfebo.

Understanding Me

Have you ever met a person too honest? No!?! Congratulations, now you have! Believe it or not, I’ve been told by countless individuals that I’m way too honest. There are very rare occasions where you may hear me tell a lie. Afterall, I am married. So, I’ve learned when the wife asks “Does this make me look fat?” to just say “no”. Believe me, I’ve learned my lesson. Other than things like that, I really don’t find a point lying. I mean really, what’s the point? Most lies end up coming right back around and bitting you in the butt. So with this being said, please don’t look shocked when I tell you the truth, someone has to tell you.
