Meet Sebastien Eckersly-Maslin, CEO of Sebastien International.
...Ex-Navy officer and serial entrepreneur who wants to prove to the world that you don't have to be big, to be a multinational company.
(According to BusinessDirectory.com, "a serial entrepreneur is an entrepreneur who constantly comes up with new ideas and starts new businesses based on these ideas.
As opposed to a typical entrepreneur who will often come up with a business idea, start a company based on same, then see it through, whilst playing an important role in the day to day functioning of the new company, a serial entrepreneur will often come up with the idea and then get things started.
However he/she will give responsibility to someone else and move on to a new idea and a new venture.
BusinessDirectory.com says that this can be a good thing if the individual has lots of unique ideas and is the best one to get things started, but can be a bad thing if the individual stops putting time into a company that needs his/her help, in order to move forward with a new idea that may or may not succeed").
Sebastian has a background in engineering and has several businesses that he has founded.
In February 2010, he started his first successful company in seven (7) days, with just $500!
He has offices in six (6) major international cities: Tokyo, Paris, London, New York, San Francisco and Sydney - which provides the base for his multinational company - Sebastien International.
