Excellent course. I've heard the term "Agile" thrown around for years. I finally feel like I have a solid understanding of the terms and processes that surround the methodology. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get a solid overview of the subject. Well done!

The Story

My passion for entrepreneurship, technology and education started when I was just a kid. By the time I was 15 I had already started three businesses: candy commercialization at school, newspaper recycling in my community and car washing for family and friends. I had also moved from Colombia (South America) to the U.S. to experience first-hand the American culture, something I was always curious about. By the time I had reached my 20’s I had moved on to a knowledge based business, teaching English. And during my 20’s and 30’s I got married, became a self-taught investor, started trading stocks in the U.S. and Colombian markets, traveled the world, migrated to Australia, did 2 MBAs and started all the startups listed below. I also speak three languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese), have been to over 10 countries in 4 continents and have also lived in Colombia, Mexico, USA and Australia (my home)

***Behind the Scenes

It's not all pink, ponies and rainbows. Even though I have had many successes as a person, professional and entrepreneur, I have also been rejected many times. A lot of people have not believed in my projects or ideas and have not supported me in my journey. Yet, like Jack Ma I have kept moving fwd because I strongly believe I am doing the right thing in pursuing my dreams and projects (go to youtube and search "Jack Ma rejected by Harvard"). Here is a list of the people who have rejected me recently (to name a few):

1) The prestigious University MIT, twice in 2016

2) The Boston Global Mass Challenge in 2014.

3) The Colombian Government - Trip to Silicon Valley in 2014.
