I am an entrepreneur. I started my first business venture at the age of 10 selling oranges from our grove of over 64 trees to a local breakfast eatery. Since then, I've worked in a variety of professions, but I'm always looking to solve problems.

Why would this person want to remain in secrecy? My guess is that he's got some big banking lobbyists backing him…
