What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
I simply had to. No one else was going to develop this medical device and I saw how deeply it was needed by the folks suffering while on oxygen therapy. Most importantly, I promised my mom, who had lung disease, that I would make a difference.
A long, hard journey requiring dedication, grit and inspiration.
Advice for fellow entrepreneurs:
You really have to believe in yourself and your product. Being an entrepreneur will test you in so many ways and you really need authentic and deep dedication to keep you going until you succeed.
