Omg you all are too kind!!! The closest I got was trying to start an AI security company with my buddies from college, but we floundered with the business aspect, and then we all eventually went our separate ways after college. But now you guys have got me seriously re-evaluating my potential. I’m going to have to ponder this for awhile. Thank you 😄
