What is up Thrivers! I’m your Host Gregory Alexander, and today I am speaking with an individual who has an unparalleled passion for entrepreneurship, Corey Purves. Corey is a 19 year old who has relentlessly pushed the boundaries of what is possible. From starting his own successful dog sitting businesses at 9 years old, to growing an Instagram page to over 18,000 followers in under 2 years…. he has continuously developed his passion for sales, marketing, and business in general. Now, Corey has paved a path into an apprenticeship with Praxis – a career launching platform for those who don’t rely on third party credentials, instead they become their own credential. Today, we are going to dive into his journey to uncover how he has continuously created value to push himself to his next opportunity. Needless to say, but I am very excited. Join us as we uncover his story to understand the art of value creation.
