Entrepreneur Jeff Aronin once met with a physician who had a tough decision to make. This doctor had a child who was experiencing seizures. He had two options to treat the child. One of these was to perform a complex surgical procedure while the other viable choice was to use a medicine to eliminate the seizures. He thought it over and decided that the medicine would be the best choice. This turned out to be the right decision as the child didn’t need to be operated on and instead had their condition greatly improved with the medicine.
Helping people has been at the center of Jeff Aronin’s career throughout his time in the healthcare industry. He started a venture capital firm called Paragon Biosciences where he invests in healthcare company startups. His company also incubates these companies and helps them through the earliest stages of getting going. The types of companies that Jeff Aronin focuses on is those that are seeking cures for orphan and/or rare diseases that are not being sufficiently addressed.
After completing high school Jeff Aronin became a student at Northern Illinois University. After graduating from there with his bachelor’s degree he attended DePaul University and earned an MBA. He worked in the field of healthcare for a period of time before founding his first private venture company, Ovation Pharmaceuticals LLC. He was the chief executive officer of this company which was designed to help those who had conditions that were rare and unaddressed by the medical community.
Unlike most other healthcare entrepreneurs, Jeff Aronin hasn’t been focusing his career on finding the next huge blockbuster cure. He instead wants to help those patients who have diseases which are rare and haven’t been cured. While there isn’t as much money to be made in what Jeff Aronin does but he thinks that the people who have these diseases should have access to cures and what he and his company earn is sufficient for their efforts.

The Russian nation has been at the heart of the development of new technologies since the late 19th-century. The development of a range of technologies began in Russia, including the creation of the radio and the launch of the first human into space. Over the course of the late-20th-century, the position of Russia as a technology leader has taken a hit with economic problems at the turn of the 21st-century resulting in the U.S. and much of Asia. The single term of Vladimir Putin as the Prime Minister of Russia from 2008 to 2012 led to a burst of activity from American investors in Russia, including tech expert William Saito.
In terms of Russia, William Saito would be among the first to recognize the amazing potential offered by Russia as a technology leader. The improvements available in Russia were initially focused on the development of the impressive Kaspersky antivirus brand which proved popular until it was downgraded by American technology leaders. William Saito has been pivotal in finding the simplest way of introducing Russian technology into the wider world.
William Saito has spent much of the last few years assisting with the development of various technology startups based around the existing technology sectors of cybersecurity for the oil and gas industries. During the last few years, Willaim Saito has inspired many U.S.-based investment companies including Goldman Sachs to seek out various Russian startups, which are being advised by Google and other high-profile American technology groups.
Due to recession and real estate crash that took place a few years ago, tons of average Americans who had invested in the sector are now a hopeless lot.

This he says is another powerful ingredient to gaining triumph because when you hang out with people who thirst for success, then you will undoubtedly get the motivation you require to get to the top from them.
Another word of advice from Toner to those who lost everything and everyone else, in general, is that they should do what rich people do. He believes that if you want to be wealthy, then you have to stop acting poor. Doing what rich people do helps you create the mindset of a prosperous person and enables you to overcome challenges and hurdles along the way because you want to maintain that status of an affluent person.
