When wisdom meets indefatigable courage, amazing things happen. A look at the magnificent life of Peter J Burns III would not only exemplify how accurate this statement is but it will also inspire other individuals to emulate his entrepreneurial spirit.
How He Started
Starting as a young 19-year-old freshman at the University of Virginia, Peter J Burns III did something daring and unprecedented. While other freshmen were focused on settling in and familiarizing themselves with the new environment, he focused on looking at areas that would help him. Burns took a 4th-year course as a freshman which required coming up with a business plan and actualizing it. As courageous as he was, he made history by starting his tourist business, renting mopeds; the Nantucket Island for tourists was the first of its kind in the country.
This served as a launching pad for his entrepreneurial career and the story has remained positively inspiring ever since.
What He Does Now
Peter J Burns III currently runs over a 100 business with various offshoots nationally and internationally.
