From A Drug Arrest to A Successful Business Exit

Entrepreneurs are not business people, and business people are not entrepreneurs. There is a unique shift in the mindset that occurs between those two roles, and the difference happens more as a business grows, which forces many people to switch between the two. But what drives one person into an entrepreneurship path? What life events instil that drive to create something all your own?

Eric Gilbert-Williams may not have the end-all answer to those questions, but he has a lot of ideas around the topic pulled directly from his own life experiences. Sharing his early struggles with the law and finding stable employment, he illustrates how the entrepreneurial spirit of perseverance and learning from failure helped him to build a successful business, achieve a successful exit and has set him on his next path of projects.
