Bio: I am part of the Empire Avenue movement once again!
I am happy and excited to be back at Empire Avenue. I was a highly active and involved member of Empire Avenue from September 2010 to July 2013. I took a 7 month “sabbatical” and left the site. When I left Empire Avenue in July 2013, My account had an estimated net worth of 1.8 billion EAVs and a portfolio of 1.7 Billion will 100 Million EAvs in the bank. I had 8512 stocks in my portfolio and 8595 shareholders. The Empire Avenue Leaders movement (and available upgrade https://www.empireavenue.com/shop) was what brought me back to Empire Avenue The site and everything in it (with the exception of several Empire Avenue members that I was pleased to call friends) has changed and I am but a newbie again. I look forward to learning and growing my social presence as well as evangelizing about people, causes, and products that are important to me. I have missed the ability to share and discover quality content with the Empire Avenue community. I have missed having a worldwide network.
I am HIGHLY IMPRESSED by the Mission Feature in the fact that folks are completing the missions BECAUSE THEY WANT TO..not because they have to!
Please be patient and understanding with me, if I don't buy your stock after you buying mine. I am a brand new Empire Avenue member and I need to focus on building wealth (EAV wealth anyway!) so that I can be a benefit to the Empire Avenue community.

I love to swim, travel, camp, but what I really love to do is plan social parties and social trips. I will forever be a "Social Chairman"
I have a large list of personal and professional life goals I want to accomplish. 2014 is the year where a lot of those goals are going to get their start.
I am NOT an open networker type of guy who connects just to connect.I keep relatively tight tabs on my Facebook, so please don't be offended if I don't accept your friend request. ( I promise I won't mark it as Spam and get you sent to Facebook Jail! =) ) LinkedIn is kind of the same way. If I think that there could be a beneficial professional connection, then I will connect with you. Twitter and You Tube will all depend on the content.
