Homeless teen to Army Vet to 7 figure founder


I took the long road to get where I am. After being homeless as a teen in Southern California, I graduated college and left the U.S. Army ready to light the world on fire. Like most successful entrepreneurs, the path took a bit longer than expected, but once I figured things out I grew my company Launchpeer from $30K in debt to 7 figures. Along the way I've helped hundreds of founders build and scale their businesses using lean marketing tactics and strategies.
