Embark on an extraordinary journey with The Intentional Entrepreneur, a blog that transcends the ordinary to inspire, collaborate, and make a lasting impact. As a seasoned Commercial and Residential Real Estate Broker, my path to entrepreneurship unfolded along a winding road, shaped by years in the corporate hustle and a fervent desire to chart my own course. With a supportive upbringing and a passion for philanthropy, my entrepreneurial dream found its purpose in the dynamic world of real estate.


My Entrepreneurial Odyssey

My leap into entrepreneurship wasn’t merely about building a career; it was a profound commitment to combining passion and purpose and unlocking the wealth potential inherent in real estate. 

From Rock Bottom to Entrepreneurial Heights

In 2014, I faced the daunting reality of losing everything, a situation familiar to many entrepreneurs. Starting from scratch, I embarked on a journey of reinvention, a testament to the resilience that defines entrepreneurial spirits. While I never experienced homelessness, the challenges of rebuilding from the ground up shaped my understanding of the struggles entrepreneurs face when life takes an unexpected turn.

This blog encapsulates my intentional journey, marked by closing millions in transactions, crafting dream investments for clients, and nurturing authentic relationships—all while steadfastly staying true to my values.

A Decade of Entrepreneurial Wisdom

A decade in the brokerage world introduced me to real estate powerhouses, celebrated founders, and successful entrepreneurs who became the architects of my entrepreneurial identity. Now, as an entrepreneur eager to share knowledge, The Intentional Entrepreneur welcomes you to a space of rich insights, compelling stories, and practical guidance.
