Patrick’s story is one for the books (and maybe even a movie!) He immigrated to America as a young boy with his parents, who were fleeing the Iranian revolution. Fast forward a few years and Patrick joined the U.S. military, served in the 101st Airborne, and then entered the financial services industry. But the real kicker is that before he turned 30, Patrick decided to start his own company – PHP Agency Inc. – and now it’s one of the fastest growing companies in the financial marketplace.
But Patrick’s not just a successful businessman, he’s also a teacher and mentor to the next generation of leaders. He’s the founder of Valuetainment, a media brand that teaches the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and personal development. He’s even got a video that’s amassed over 30 million views online, called “The Life of an Entrepreneur in 90 Seconds.” (And if you’re not a fan of short attention spans, don’t worry, he also wrote a book.)
Patrick’s message is clear: pursue your dreams and don’t settle. He’s even hosted interviews with some of the most interesting and successful people in the world, like Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, and Steve Wozniak, to name a few. And with his own rags-to-riches story, he’s a testament to the power of the American Dream. So let’s all take a page from Patrick’s book and chase our own entrepreneurial dreams!
