Why should you win the Under30CEO March Madness Entrepreneur Mashup?

I should win the Under30CEO March Madness Tournament because I am the Founder of Advint International and Intentional Investments. While still young in my entrepreneurial journey, I feel very blessed thus far. After starting my career in banking at 17, where I worked for 7 years, I left a secure job last year to pursue my dreams. One of the constants I have in every endeavor I pursue is a strong focus on helping people. My businesses currently include over 30 rental houses, a company plane, and a multi-million dollar valuation. While I still have a lot to learn, I am honored to be a part of the competition.
