Ibrahim Alhussain

How do your colleagues describe you?

Coworkers have described me as a reliable leader and an excellent team player. A former coworker offered to write a letter of recommendation because of my excellent team leadership.

Why do you do what you do?

As a business owner and an entrepreneur, I have a passion for helping others achieve their goals. Idea sharing, energy building and innovation are areas I’m most passionate about when working with business owners. Uncertain times bring about many challenges but with those challenges and uncertainty comes great opportunity. I like to build the future, one entrepreneur at a time.
