Jeff Yalden overcame incredible odds to become the man he is today. As a teenager, he lost interest in life, in school, in himself. He took the SATs twice and received very low scores. Worse, Jeff suffered from a stutter, a facial tic, bad acne, and a learning disability. His self-esteem in the gutter, Jeff graduated high school 128th in a class on 133.
Growing up in the United Kingdom, multi-award winning entrepreneur Nathaniel Peat was face with stereotypes of what West Indian children were perceived to bee. Such stereotypes at the time, according to Peat, were that these children were underachievers, drug users, and instigators of crime.
Today Peat, who holds a bachelor of engineering degree with honors and a master of science degree in advanced manufacturing systems from Brunei University, is the CEO and chief engineer of Gennex Elite, which he started threes years ago from the Virgin media Pioneer platform – an online community of enterprising people who use videos and blogging to share their ideas and experiences.
