Growing up in East New York, Brooklyn during the crack & murder epidemic that swept through New York City had a major impact on Josh’s life. He witnessed and endured the struggles of drug abuse, gang violence & murder that became the norm during the 80’s & 90’s in East New York, one of the murder capitals of the country at the time. Becoming an All-American athlete in 3 different sports (football, wrestling & track) are what kept him off the streets and eventually led him to being recruited to play football at a military college, known for having the highest starting salaries for graduates in The United States at the time. It was there where he obtained his degree in International Business as well as a Coast Guard License to operate ships.
After becoming the first person in his family to attend and graduate from college, Josh had a successful career in the Maritime Industry as a Maritime Captain piloting millions of dollars worth of cargo around the country. Despite enjoying his career and the security of a six figure income, he knew that there was much more to life than working a job to build someone else’s dreams. So at the ripe age of 24, Josh retired from the workforce and went on to pursue his passion for entrepreneurship and philanthropy. He founded the company Valentin Enterprises, LLC, a conglomerate that owns and manages a variety of businesses, investments & non-profits. His businesses range from E-Commerce, Personal Care, Wealth Management, Angel Investments, Private Coaching & Training to Travel, Direct Sales & more.
Josh’s greatest contribution has come from his global philanthropic endeavors and years of free life coaching through his “Breakfast Club” community he still serves on a weekly basis online. He currently speaks to audiences around the world on his story of overcoming adversity and struggle, with a captivating and passionate style of communicating that inspires the masses to take action and live out their dreams. Today he resides between New York City and The Bahamas with his family.
