Today, we have the pleasure of interviewing Lyron Foster, a Louisiana-raised, Hawai'i based Musician, Serial Entrepreneur, Investor, Author, and Technologist. To date: he has founded and/or co-founded 87+ companies across 4 countries.
Please tell us something about yourself.
I'm the Founder and CEO of Code Armada LLC (USA) and Code Armada LTD (United Kingdom) and several other companies/brands. I'm a bit of a busy body/serial entrepreneur.
How did you get into what you do right now? Please tell us more about your journey.
I've always had a love for technology as long as I can remember. My career began as a Unix Systems Administrator for a Tech company, and I eventually moved into entrepreneurship. After a few successes and a few failures, I eventually found my “sweet spot” and scaled up from there.
Who are your role models?
Larry Ellison and Elon Musk. I love their energy and focus.
What inspires you?
I simply want to be better and more successful than everyone else. (haha) I'm playing to win.
Please tell us about your company.
Code Armada is basically the evolved version of my freelancing endeavors. It started out small with just me behind the helm with fairly positive, but steady growth, until about 2 years ago when things just seemed to take off. Now we have a presence in over 50 cities in the United States and a few international locations.
Which social media channels work best for promoting your work?
I'm very active on Twitter.
What's your greatest fear?
I've already lived through and survived some of my (past) greatest fears. My only fear at the moment is not accomplishing all that I set out to do.
What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
I'm stubborn. There are many times that I probably should have just stopped. Thankfully I didn't.
