What are you working on right now?

I am currently working on getting through the 2022 Medicare Annual Enrollment Period where I will have the opportunity to help as many seniors as I can, get the insurance they need for the next year.

Who is your ideal client?

Currently, my ideal client is anyone receiving Medicare and/or Medicaid.

What is a common misconception about your industry or work?

The most common misconception is that insurance companies take advantage of seniors. When in reality there is nothing more tragic than seniors not receiving the care that they need.

What is your big picture vision for your business?

The big picture is to own and run my own financial firm with my partner. He works in automotive finance and investments.

What is your superpower?

My superpower is dual natured. I am more empathetic than most. It’s what allows me to connect. I also have the ability to read people and a situation and adapt accordingly. With these together I am able to see multiple sides and outcomes.

What is your favorite business or productivity tool?

My television and Chromecast. By having the TV in my office, I feel more grounded and comfortable.

What book should every entrepreneur read?

Being as how I am working on that myself. I am open to any recommendations.

Why Alkaloid?

Simple. This place personifies “Home away from Home.”

What is your favorite perk at Alkaloid? Or maybe 2 or 3?

  1. I can play my television in my office with no interruption.
  2. The coffee.

If you were working from Alkaloid during the pandemic, how were you using the space? 

The pandemic was stressful and a mess for pretty much all of us. My office became more of a sanctuary where I could work, study or even chill. The place was always safe and clean. Everyone respected each other in terms of masking up and being clean. Even basic reporting and communication was seamless.

What advice would you give someone considering coworking?

Immerse yourself. Mingle, you won’t regret it. There is a network here waiting for you.
