This blog is where I record my thoughts and experiences on my way to achieving my goals.
As an entrepreneur, I’m working relentlessly to build a positive company.
As a human being, I want to change the world.
I believe in a positive world that strives for high levels of well-being for all animals (including humans), ecological efficiency, social justice, and a better mindset of ethics—a world where the sum total of the effects of humanity on the Natural World is positive, and increase over time.
This blog started in January 2010, soon after I incorporated my first company in the United States at age 20 (which has failed). Every human being has the potential to change the world and I hope that my story can inspire others to pursue that goal.
I was born on March 9, 1989, in France.
From the beginning I had entrepreneurship in my blood and my own way of doing things. I started programming in middle school and quickly learned how to hand-code websites with HTML and CSS. From that moment I’ve never stopped developing websites on my free time.
Soon I was able to sell myself as a web developer but was never really interested in doing client-work. Instead, I prefer to build things the way I see them, by my own standards and vision. I’m the kind of guy who often get pissed off by Internet Explorer because it breaks my websites. You’ve guessed it, I’m a Mac user.
While in high school I taught myself LAMP (Linux, Apache, PHP & MySQL) and made several attempts at building a web community, none of which lasted very long.
I graduated from high school in 2006 and started studying Information Technology in university. Already using and learning those technologies that I was most passionate about, I was never really interested in what was taught there. I continued to work on various side projects but didn’t find much more success than before.
In 2009 I decided to start my own company. I became the sole founder of Nixint, LLC, built two reasonably good products, but lacked the means and know-how to build a business and attract users.
The fall of 2009 was a turning point in my life when I began reading and listening to Jim Rohn. His words and speeches have had a profound effect on my life and personal philosophy.
In early 2010 I dropped out of university and, after realizing that I couldn’t do the business all by myself, started looking for a co-founder. I founded a new company in the UK (Teamly Ltd) with Scott Allison of Scotland but ended up leaving later that year to pursue my own dream and live my passion.
The greatest achievement was, at first, and for a time, but a dream.

I cannot change everything, but I surely can change things.
