What's at the core of what you're building? If you're not thinking about your legacy, what you doin' it for? What's influencing your drive and execution? So many of us dream drivers have these amazing ideas, but don't know how to get them from the idea (PARK) stage and into DRIVE.We talk with NYC-based technology entrepreneur James Lopez about his #dreamdriving journey, how he made the transition from the corporate IT world to entrepreneurship and the many lessons he's learned along the way. He shares the FAILURES he had to navigate past and how he was able to successfully co-found and sustain the Phat Startup. James also discusses why launching parenting company Cool4Dads.com via #FatherhoodIsLit and  empowering men to be the best dads is one his proudest entrepreneurial feats yet. 

When James is not creating memories with his children, he consults startups on community building and customer development. We even dive into James' tips for entrepreneurs looking to grow, so don't miss out. Remember, you can join in on the conversation on social (@dreamsindrive) and use the hashtag #dreamsindrive.
