If you have ever envisioned yourself rising to the top of the financial world, a great role model to look into would be Brian Bonar. Based out of California, his brilliance brought him to be the CEO of Trucept, INC., The Amanda Company, Inc., Smart-tek Automated Services, INC. and The chairman and secretary of Warring management services.
According to Bloomberg, Brian Bonar is not your typical East Coast business tycoon, Bonar graduated from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland, he continued to achieve his PhD. at Staffordshire University. The importance of this being that he created his own path to get to his position in life. When most people think about financial success they think Wall Street and ivy league schools. Bonar is not your typical tycoon, in fact the Scottish native can be traced to humble roots.
Multiple sources credit his success to his engineering skills in a sense that he knows how things work and applies it to business. His mastery of his technical skills allowed a huge advantage as it was said he can build practically any business in any field from the ground up. This is a little more visible with the opening of his restaurant in San Diego called the Bellamy. There is a huge jump from providing Business support to running a restaurant as products and services vary so drastically. It is impossible to apply the exact same functions to every business and succeed equally.
This illustrates how diverse Bonar really is and his sheer talent of taking any task and catering to it specifically. There are few visionaries that can work outside of their specific field without trying to create some sloppy cut and paste quality of work. The Bellamy is even more significant since it is a taste of his Scottish roots in the US. It’s clearly a passionate move if you were to bring your home flavor to share amongst the people you work alongside.
In his case he is not exactly a person you would expect to work alongside however it is said that he has been known to get involved with every aspect of each of his business endeavors and ultimately get his hands dirty with his team. In short he has been regarded as a team player and a great asset to every company that he has been affiliated with. As far as how you go about reaching your own financial goals, keep your head up as Dr. Bonar has proven that there is more ways than just Wall Street.
