Unfortunately, due to lack of focus he left after one year and was sent to live with his aunt & uncle in Atlanta. They owned a successful cleaning business sparking Kyren’s interest in entrepreneurism. As a father to a young son he began to hustle on the side to make ends meet. Consistently witnessing the destruction of lives and paths to prison he decided he wanted more out of life. Kyren stopped hustling and began to research how to increase generational wealth. Focusing on nurturing his son and teaching him that to work ethic is key when paired with a thirst for knowledge.
