Hello Jared, Tell us about yourself and what inspired you to first start your business?

What were some of the hardships you had to overcome in business or life to be where you are today?
Some of the hardships I had to overcome in life was living in the inner city of (North Omaha) and navigating the environment (street life) which tends to lead young lives down very dark roads, At one point in time in my young adulthood life I was homeless with no money to my name. So I had to battle with that reality and find ways to pull myself up. There are a lot of things I could list but these few things has helped me became who I am today and has helped me tremendously in terms of business.
