Before starting the company, I served the country as a United States Marine. Now we serve people in a different way.

5. What would you like to say about changing your career path?

If you have a passion or a burning desire to do something more in your life, do it. When you feel these things in you, it’s evidence that God already has it ready prepared for you, all you have to do now is take the action, gain the skills, and serve others, and give God all the praise.
