Stephen Dela Cruz is a national best selling author, speaker and serial entrepreneur who specializes in helping budding entrepreneurs double their income in their first year. As a college student, Stephen’s first entrepreneurial venture was a photography business that he built to multiple six figures in under a year. Soon, he went on to launch several other successful companies, each of which reached over a million dollars in revenue. When he was 28 years old, Stephen had a stroke.
