"I always knew I was going to be an entrepreneur. I just didn't expect it to happen this early. I thought I would work for a few years and establish myself in the business world first. I learned everything about the financial markets during my time at Lubin. That later provided the inspiration and foundation for Gebni's demand-adjusted pricing approach to restaurant meals."
