By formal education and training, I am an expert researcher. Like many of you reading this, I have found a sense of freedom with entrepreneurship. The trick is knowing how to find and use your talents to serve an audience. But to be an entrepreneur, the business you create has to make money; otherwise it is not a real business.
Scientists are trained to transform the way we think about life and it's problems. I've found a way to take my training out of the laboratory setting and integrate it with proven strategies for transformative thinking and business analysis. These techniques can be applied to help any individual or business that is struggling on their journey towards achieving their goals. Therefore, I have trained to become an entrepreneur consultant who has helped entrepreneurs realize their business goals through the development of strategic plans.
A business strategy involves defining and clarifying those steps necessary for executing a sustainable, well-defined business goal.
As the site name suggests, I value creativity. In my profession, I need to develop creative solutions to solve various problems, but I also feel that it is necessary that I have an outlet outside of work. My creative entrepreneurial outlet is writing.
I have recently finished rough drafts of two science-fiction/fantasy manuscripts and I am currently in the editing process before my journey of finding a literary agent. I have also written a guide to help individuals develop the foundational mindset needed to be successful in entrepreneurship and in life. I have previously released a guide for college/university organic chemistry students that is being sold on Amazon. I have written research based scientific articles. I am also co-inventor on published chemistry patents so I understand the creative nature and background research that it requires to tackle problems from a new angle.
I look all around me and see individuals who have great potential as entrepreneurs, but lack either the resources or the drive to test out their idea and bring it to life. I have been in positions of fear that kept me from acting on ideas. I have tried ventures and failed. I have been discouraged. I've been in a position of financial hardship. I know what it feels like to work full-time and try to find time to work on building a side business. I've been where you are and now I want to help others take that leap by providing advice, resources, and stories of others who have not been afraid to get started in their own business. I hope you will join this community that I am building and give plenty of feedback. Don't be afraid to interact with me because this site is about helping YOU!
I think it is important to know who you are dealing with so in an effort of full transparency, below you will find my personality traits as judged by popular personality tests. I am posting these not only to show you who I am, but also to stress the importance of understanding as much about yourself as you can because that will translate to the type of business you will flourish in.
