Success Talks 69: Stephen interveiws Cornelius Simon

From small-town city boy to world traveler to corporate success story, Cornelius has overcome the odds of being “average.” Two weeks after high school, he joined the U.S. Navy, where he spent four years working in the field of communication and technology. His experience with the Navy help shaped his ability to learn quickly, adapt to any environment and be a self-starter who is driven and ambitious. After completing his military service, Cornelius began his civilian career as a software engineer. It wasn’t long before he excelled in the corporate arena. His rise as a successful IT professional exposed him to many facets of corporate America, different corporate cultures and the dynamics of being a team player and leader. Though his success as IT professional helped him develop his business acumen and grow into a sought-after technologist and leader, Cornelius was still unfulfilled, leading him to seek his life’s purpose. It wasn’t until his personal journey into the meaning of life that Cornelius found substance and purpose of his existence. His own personal development and self-awareness was an amazing journey; a journey that soon became his life’s passion: to help others realize their full potential, achieve their highest self and succeed in life. Cornelius’ passion for empowering others to pursue their dreams, follow their passion and live life without limits is seen in every speaking engagement, training seminar and coaching session he engages in.

ST65: Stephen Interviews David Lowe

Welcome to Success Talks hosted by Stephen Dela Cruz. Today Stephen interviews David Lowe the creator of Qwerky Co-living a tech startup connecting likeminded individuals, to be able to live and work together. Originally the idea came from a pilothouse serving eight entrepreneurs but soon they realized that they could serve so many more people!


            David was born in England but ventures over the pond at the age of thirty-two to Austin Texas, where he started a company called Uber Pong, a ping pong based company. Within a year Uber Pong was making custom paddles for different distributers, and within two years started to host a celebrity Ping-Pong tournament.


                        The hardest part of starting this new business for David was having to start from square one after moving. Not only that the process of being able to live and work in the U.S. took around a year for him. Starting over has made starting new businesses hard for David, because you really have to start from scratch while creating your network.


            While David does plan to stay in San Diego for a while, him and his partner are already thinking about being successful and helping others, especially focusing in Tijuana. Visualizing that Qwerky is already a success allows David to build backwards instead of building from the ground up. This visualization helps him and his partner think of their destination not just the problems at hand.


            What sets Qwerky apart is David’s plan to really build a co-living community by focusing on bringing together likeminded people.


David’s best advice for those looking to move to San Diego as an entrepreneur is,

  1. Immerse yourself in the culture
  2. Never stop learning
  3. Get out and see San Diego
