I am a dreamer and a creator. I co-founded several successful businesses (Luxy Hair, Five Minute Journal, and Productivity Planner). I also run Dreamers & Creators, a creative agency that allows me to pursue and work on new business ideas. I am fortunate enough to share all of my entrepreneurial and life activities with my lovely wife and business partner, Mimi Ikonn. We are also angel investors and have invested in great companies like Calm, Shyp, Sprig, Tradesy, and others.
My YouTube channel is my outlet to deliver value to people as I go along my journey and learn things along the way that I want to share with others.
You want to know what’s my ultimate secret to life? I am here to deliver value! That is all. This is my ultimate secret to life.
