Dan Solomon has a diverse background in engineering, business, and finance with experience across several industries, including banking, consulting, and chemical. He is on a mission to help international students and young professionals, especially those in Germany and the Netherlands, gain the right skills they need to succeed in the job market. He is a strong believer in taking little steps towards making the world a better place.
Dan spent five years studying in Russia on a scholarship. For those five years, he would receive $500 per month. Dan was a bit flamboyant and spent all that money on things that didn’t really mean anything. He bought stuff he didn’t have to buy. Dan regrets never investing any of this money.
Dan’s number one goal for the next 12 months is to build the Bliss Career platform to a level where it is self-sustaining to help as many people as possible. He also wants to build the discipline to keep pushing his investment plans and make sure that he stays consistent.
“Try your best to make sure that every month you take a bit of your money and put it in your investment portfolio.”
