If, a month ago, you had told me that I’d be in Los Pinos Mexico city meeting Mexican President Felipe Calderon in a few weeks, I’d have said you are completely nuts. This is however exactly the kind of doors that the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Association (www.g20yea.com) can open up for its members and country delegates.

On Friday I experienced my first day in a room with some of the brightest minds in the world, who are focused on creating an improved global economic, political, social and environmental ecosystem for young entrepreneurs.

Well if that is true then I am looking forward to some amazing success very soon!
