I had the pleasure of being interviewed recently by the Wake Forest University Entrepreneurship Center.  The writer asked about my life experiences, challenges and future plans.

“One of the key things in entrepreneurship is being able to see patterns and opportunity, and then knowing when to seize upon it at the right moments. In 2000, I heard of an opening in the Cayman Islands and jumped on it. I didn’t even have a passport, but I filed for one fast, sold everything I owned, packed 2 suitcases and moved there. I would spend 5-6 of the best years of my life there, learning a lot and living a life few people get to enjoy as a result.” – See more at: http://entrepreneurship.wfu.edu/news/2013/10/10/the-adventures-of-entrepreneur-and-wake-alum-gavin-smith#sthash.2fQneT6X.dpuf
