Why Power Over Will Power

why power

Starting businesses has always been a passion of mine. The very first business I ever started was a limousine company called Elizabeth Limos. To learn more about the company and how I actually was able to found it at such a young age, go to my about page at elizabethlimos.com.

How many people in their mid twenties are able to retire their parents? Not many, it is a difficult feat. But nothing can stop me because my why burns deep.
