My company is called Liquid Made, a subsidiary of publicly traded Acquired Sales Corp. (trading symbol AQSP). It has been quite a journey to get here! Let’s start from the beginning…I grew up in Illinois and my first love was basketball. As a top tier high school basketball player, my goal in life was to play basketball professionally and I was seemingly on the right path toward doing that—until the unthinkable happened. My family took a cruise that docked in Belize, and our dream vacation quickly turned into a nightmare when my brother, best friend and I were kidnapped and ended up in a Belize prison because we didn’t pay off the kidnappers. My Dad had a gut feeling that we didn’t get back on the boat before the scheduled departure and he stayed in Belize (without telling my Mom, who was waiting on the yacht) to try to find us. Miraculously, he did, and my Dad was able to work with various locals and the embassy to get us out after three days – and fly back to the USA just in time to take my SATs. Unfortunately, the effects of being in that prison lingered: I’d contracted a viral autoimmune disorder that permanently derailed my basketball career and had me in and out of the hospital for the next 6 years.
