He begins by saying that what drove him into medicine in the first place was the fact that he saw how physicians seemed to live useful lives and drove good cars. However, his father used to have issues as a doctor, and that is why for him he decided to begin a business to cater for the bills. He started buying real estate while in school. His current idea is to build a brand in the retail medical aesthetics in the world. The industry will have different departments with different practitioners; it will have plastic surgeons and dermatologists. They will focus on excellent communication with clients, which may entail emailing patients and such.
