Patrick's story starts with his family immigrating to America when he was 10-years old. His parents fled Iran as refugees during the Iranian revolution and were granted U.S.citizenship. After high school Patrick joined the U.S. Army and served in the 101st Airborne before starting a career in financial services. After working with traditional companies, he was inspired to launch PHP Agency Inc., an insurance sales,marketing and distribution company - and did that before he turned 30.
Patrick is passionate about shaping the next generation by teaching on entrepreneurship. Patrick's popularity surged when The Life of an Entrepreneur in 90 Seconds, a video he created,accumulated over 27 million views online. This and other videos comprise his library of inspirational content about entrepreneurship available through Valuetainment, a media brand he conceived and founded to teach about the fundamentals of entrepreneurship and inspire people to and achieve their dreams. It has been referred to as "the voice for entrepreneurs."

Education is broken and most graduates are broke.
The purpose of this book is to start an important dialogue about college education. I will make the case for why I believe 70% of college students should drop out. The concept of giving our trust to the educational system without accountability has not worked. I believe it’s time to ask serious questions.
