Go and travel the world.
Be a peon for a Fortune 500 company and learn from the best, they say.
My guest today has taken the road less traveled. He did not take time off to get some life experience. What he did, he went from college to starting his own company.
Erik Nachbahr is the President and Founder of Helion Automotive Technologies & Helion Trucking Technologies. After graduating from Loyola University in Maryland, Erik shortly thereafter started Helion, an end to end solution to handle any and all demands an automotive business needs in order to operate their information technology.
