Rob Donovan, is an entrepreneur, a financial adviser and a world leading expert on all things that pertains to business. Born and raised in Frankfurt, Germany, he was taught the difficulties that life entails. He knew that in order to succeed, to make it in life, to be successful, he would have to work 10 times harder than everyone, ten times harder than his peers.
From a very young age, Rob had been instilled with a kind of motivation, that you don’t see in people his age. He wanted to be a great man, a man who was adored by the world. A man who could change the world and mold it to his liking. Rob was a man full of ambition.
Through years, and years of schooling, Rob thought that his initial goal was to go to one of the top universities in the world. He thought that by doing this, he would be able to come one step closer to his dream. He was wrong! After spending the first 3 years of university studying pre-med, he found out that he not only hated the sciences but hated school in general. After three years, he had every reason to quit, but because he was afraid of what the future held for him. He decided to transfer into the engineering program and graduate as a computer engineer.
Throughout this entire 3 years, Rob worked two jobs, spending about twenty-five to thirty hours a week working part time, to pay off his tuition, while working full-time. He worked himself to the bone, to make sure that no matter the circumstance, he was going to succeed, and nothing was going to take away what God had destined for him.
After 2 or so years in the engineering program, he was offered a one-year exclusive internship at one of the top software companies in the world. An internship that could potentially change his life. He was ecstatic, this was a one in a life time opportunity. He accepted the offer in a heartbeat.
After four months working at this company, he had grown bored of it. He asked himself “Is this what my life is supposed to be like?” “Is this what I am supposed to look forward to after graduating university?” He thought to himself, “How can I take this opportunity and turn it around into an opportunity that would potentially let me fulfill my dream?” After contemplating, he decided to start his own business.
This business would lead him to be one of the wealthiest people in the world. That one-year internship at the software company completely changed his life.
