I came to the US with my family with no more than just $500, 2 suitcases and a dream.
I knew even before getting my first job that I wanted to run my own business. I’d wake up in the middle of the night bubbling with ideas and a certain hunger to create something of my own.
It was 2003, I was in the middle of a growing career in FinTech with a hole I could not seem to fill even when I was earning 6 figures. So, I walked myself to my office at 4am and asked myself what I would like to do for the rest of my life. I wrote down what I was most passionate about. These were specific to two things: tech and public speaking.
At that moment, I knew right away what would give me fulfilment. In the next few weeks, I launched my company and named it PR3 Systems. Fast forward 13 years later, I have never felt as fulfilled and happy.
Today, PR3 Systems is one of the top IT companies in the US that focuses exclusively on IBM InfoSphere products. We have helped numerous Fortune 100 clients to effectively leverage their investment in IBM InfoSphere BI and Data Integration products by deep- dive training sessions on product best practices and IBM certified consulting services.
I have found in America the entrepreneurial ecosystem I have been looking for. I found that it was possible to be rewarded with what you bring to the table and not have to worry where you come from.
Today, I choose to work on projects that I am most passionate about. One of it is inspiring people with my reflections from experiences I’ve had working and collaborating with great minds.
This blog is a gift I am imparting to the community that made my dreams a reality. I hope you take home with you a piece that sparks some inspiration!
