Johnathan is a highly accomplished serial entrepreneur (with ADHD) who has founded three successful companies before the age of 30. He has always been driven to succeed in life, and this drive began in his teens when he first recognized the power of positive motivation.

Johnathan was fortunate to have had a good mentor who guided him through the complexities of financial management. This early guidance helped him understand the value of money and business, and develop the skills to identify and seize opportunities to make money and manage an investment portfolio.

In addition to his entrepreneurial experience, Johnathan holds a Bachelor of Science degree and is dedicated to sharing his life skills knowledge with others. He regularly teaches life skills, business, and English to young people (middle and high schoolers) and adults around the world.
