Hi I'm Kevin. I believe that the only things worth doing take generations. I love helping others and I want to maximize my impact. My skills are in software development, and my passion is in marketing. My hobbies are Magic : the Gathering, rock climbing, and DoTA. My personality is that I'm really easy-going and helpful. I really like helping and supporting others, and facilitating teamwork. I'm outgoing but I'm not very assertive. I generally get along with everyone. In conflict I tend to put others' needs above my own, which I've seen can lead to a lot of problems, in business, and in personal life. I'm trying hard to work on being able to be slightly more selfish and slightly more assertive. I'm also very competitive, but also somewhat lazy at the same time, if that makes sense. I was born here in the US, and I went to high school at Illinois Math and Science Academy (a public boarding school in Aurora IL). I graduated from Duke with a bachelors in biomedical engineering in 2011. I worked as a software developer for IMC Financial Markets, a high frequency trading firm, in 2011 and 2012. Then I worked for Groupon's personalization and SmartDeals team in 2013 and 2014. Then I spent a few months making the NeuEve.com website to sell this weird product my mom invented that helps older women with vaginal dryness, and I set up some Adwords accounts and forgot about it. Then I worked for Cancer IQ as a full-time software developer for a few years and lo-and-behold NeuEve has taken off! A month ago I quit my job at Cancer IQ to focus on NeuEve full time, and dedicating my time to learning more about business, marketing, finance, gynecology, and drug development R&D.

You don’t have to wait to start your journey toward success.
Entrepreneurs who are operating and maintaining a business all on their own have a ton of work on their plates. Often, the duties of a solopreneur can seem daunting or unmanageable as they tackle every task, big or small. Even if you can outsource some tasks to vendors and contractors, however, it's still important to streamline your to-do list and make the most of your time.
When an entrepreneur starts a new business, it's never with the intention to give up on it one day. The sad truth, however, is that running a business unfortunately doesn't always equate to success, and a particular business venture may not work out how you’d planned.
Seeking a mentor is a crucial step to success, especially if you're a young person just starting out in your career journey. Mentors can help their mentees learn from their own mistakes, widen their networks and encourage them to pursue their dreams.
As the holiday season draws near, so does the chance to market your offerings to holiday shoppers. To ensure successful end-of-year sales, it's important to plan effective campaigns that will entice shoppers to buy from your business. This means getting innovative and thinking beyond the "traditional" holiday ad campaigns and promotions consumers are used to seeing.
Getting press for your business is important for growth and for your bottom line. The larger the audience that sees or hears about your company in the news, the more potential customers your business brings in. But for smaller businesses or for businesses with smaller budgets, PR and marketing campaigns might not be cost-effective.
Members of Young Entrepreneur Council discuss why doing these things could do more harm than good for your business.
In the world of business, leaders aren’t only giving advice—they’re getting it too. Whether it’s tips from books, movies, friends, family or other leaders, leaders are often surrounded by others with well-intentioned advice on how they should run their businesses or how they can succeed in top leadership positions. However, not all of it is advice that should be followed.
At a time when consumers crave authenticity in messaging, personal branding strategies have never been more important. Celebrities and big brands tend to make headlines often in this regard, offering the rest of the world valuable opportunities to learn and grow from their mistakes or successes.
One of the biggest challenges for any new entrepreneur is learning their own sales habits and processes. It can take years for a person to really hone their skills and become an excellent salesperson.
Success starts with building one small habit at a time.
Members of Young Entrepreneur Council discuss some major issues with the e-commerce experience.
It’s a common tenet of American culture that with a little hard work and determination, you can make your greatest dreams come true. While being a hard worker is an admirable trait, it can quickly turn into a negative one if your everyday life is consumed by work.
The world of marketing is ever-changing, especially in today's digital-first world. Successful marketers not only need to be masters at capturing customers' attention and showing them the benefits of their product or service, but they also need to know how to leverage the most up-to-date digital tools to reach those customers.
Turning a poor customer experience around continues to be one of the main struggles customer service professionals face daily. When the service experience goes poorly, a company can risk losing that customer forever.
Popular television shows, books, movies and the media in general often paint an idyllic picture of entrepreneurship, but it’s not until you’re actually in the thick of business that you fully understand what it means to be a business owner.
