    I have learned through the ups and downs of my childhood, 10+ years as a student and being self employed. I'm never afraid to change it up or learn new things. If you can't take a step back and evaluate how to be a better version of yourself than success and happiness will never come. Never be afraid to get on your knees and pray to the lord for the blessings you do have, appreciate first.

    You can look me up on LinkedIn: KonstantinParkhomenko Essentially, I did success the conventional way. I studied hard, then went to college, then went to law school (and second law school), and then worked my way up to more and more prestigious places. And now I'm working on a Fintech/Greentech startup. Hit me up to learn more! The Business' IG account will be under grnrapp and the website will be (currently under construction). Exciting!!!!!

    Prayed... committed to defining current circumstances and establishing goals and objectives. Then , applying all I had to succeed, regardless of setbacks and events than can cause roadblocks. Just keep the Faith, as God has the plan... He just doesn't tell you what it is... he leads you through the " maze" we all will face in the journey. Finally, Always keep self-control and temperament in control.

    I started from nothing other than my determination and strength in only working in fields I believe. Customers are always happy with me and my business attitude and abilities. Thinking outside the box and years of wisdom. I am a leader not a follower in business so I am told.

    I have succeeded, failed, succeeded again. I have found that checking my ego (which was monstrous) was the best thing I could do in my life. I tangled with the IRS and that helped relax me. I now realize that my employees, friends, and family are where my focus should lie. Since I decided to shift my growth to their growth: my business boomed. I am currently in the process of scaling back to do what I enjoy and hopefully by the end of the year get back to travelling.

    Persistence, Persistence, Persistence. My industry is incredibly hard to break into, as most people fail within their first year. I worked extremely hard to get to where I am in my career, and am one of those people who actually enjoys what they do for a living. However, over the years, I tweaked it so that free time would be available in abundance.

    I manage biz operations over a large geographical area. Early in my career, I was very lucky to learn how to switch between "me at work" and "me at home". I have learned to change the state I am in, so I mastered to balance my time and priorities. Now, I am looking for a true partner in life.

    I was an honor graduate from college at a time when women were not necessarily hired as professionals. So, I learned to work hard, do my best, and navigate and negotiate. I learned a good attitude and a smile would get just as far as knowing the facts. Generating a relationship with coworkers and clients was just as important as doing the job.

    How I was raised and where I come from Determination. Humbleness. Patient. Respect and Appreciate others are the success of everything. Treat others the way you wanted to be treated. The joy that you give to others is the joy that comes back to you.

    I have always worked in the healthcare field initially as a surgical scrub tech in ophthalmology. The past 15 years I have worked in sales and helped 4 startups get off the ground: 2 were very successful as I sold EMR software in ophthalmology; another startup I got in too early (stem cell and functional medicine) and the last startup did not make it on minimal investment $. Working hard and helping others is in my DNA.

    I have had three distinct career tracks. In my 20's I was a computer engineer, mid-career I switched to becoming an international marketing manager for a Fortune 100 company. I became a self-employed real estate developer and real estate investor and consultant as my last career change. I have been extremely successful in all career paths. I am currently semi-retired, meaning I work when and if I want . I spend much of the year traveling for pleasure now as opposed to for business.

    I started planning in my early 20s with an objective and then setting short term goals along the way. I rose from Airman Basic to the level of Colonel through continuous education (civilian and military schools), hard work, getting results and persistence. I also volunteered for some undesirable locations/positions in order to increase my responsibility, thereby getting promoted to the next level.

    The road I've traveled. I continue to do so! everything I've seen and it been a part of was a lesson that I will always have. Anything that I'm involved in I make it great! I will continue to keep God in my life. Remaining humble, loyal and loving it's no cost it's a choice!

    I had no other choice. My husband committed suicide when my kids were very young. I had to scrape by and figure things out which included an obscene amount of personal growth. Luckily my husband taught me how to be entrepreneurial and I had learned so much from our experiences owning parasail operations, marinas, flipping houses,.... I'm pretty proud of the person I've become and it all was birthed from my husband's tragic death. Our family unit is tight and I have created a life where I get to love on and lift others up as a job. I'm excited to see what's next!

    I was taught integrity by me Father and ran my automotive business with this. I feel that being in a small town and having a small, 10 employees, business for 43 years and basically a zero advertising budget speaks volumes.
