I was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. I have lived in France, Paris, Nice, Grenoble, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, and visited and vacationed throughout Europe. I was a court interpreter and translator for many years. I am fluent in three languages, English, French and Serbian. I have a background in Finance, Insurance and Investments. I was an advisor to business owners, professionals and key employees, in financial, retirement, estate, tax planning, insurance and investments. I was the Athlete of the Year in High School. I taught gymnastics in my youth. I was selected out of thousands of applicants to be a summer leader for youth. I have been a business owner and entrepreneur my entire career. I love to travel. I love to network and help people. I love to build relationships. People who build relationships tend to be lucky. In other words ...the more contacts you make in life...the more relationships you build....the fewer bridges you burn...the greater the universe of people who have a strong positive feeling for you...the more people you reach out to help....the more likely you are to be lucky.
