Interview: Before I invest

I recently spoke to Authority Magazine about my professional journey from student to entrepreneur to investor, and everything in between.

Even as a child in Venezuela, I knew that I wanted to be an entrepreneur. I started my first business as a student at the University of Miami, and my career has taken interesting turns from there.

Over the years, I have had several successful — some more than others — ventures, all of which taught me important lessons. As you may have surmised based on my other blog posts, my passions and portfolio include food, hospitality, and finance. I also look for opportunities to support young, disadvantaged, and minority entrepreneurs, and causes that can make a difference.

I recently spoke to Orlando Zayas from Authority Magazine about my professional journey, the principles that guide me, and the advice I would share with other investors or companies looking for partners.
