A few thoughts from the desk of Stevan Todorovic, President
I founded the AWPB in order to provide
ambitious people from different countries across the world a chance at the opportunity to live, work or study in the United States. Allow me to give you a little insight as to why I feel so strongly about this.
In 1963 my father immigrated to the USA from Yugoslavia with his wife and daughter with dreams of a better life for himself and his family. My brother and I were born in Fort Collins Colorado, after his immigration.
I sometimes contemplate where I would be if my father had never had taken the courageous step of uprooting his family and bringing them to a foreign land. I still cannot answer that question. What I can say is that I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. I now have a family of my own. I have beautiful wife with two beautiful daughters. I live in Santa Barbara, California in a nice house with wonderful ocean views. I consider myself to be a very lucky man.
America is truly the land of opportunity, where anything is possible if you have the ambition, and motivation to make it happen. When I say this I speak from experience. Allow me to elaborate.
I briefly attended college after graduating from high school. I then began working for an advertising and marketing firm. After spending about two years working for different firms I decided to take a chance and open my own. With very little money, but a lot of ambition I managed to build a firm with over a hundred employees and millions in annual sales in a very short period of time. I now have the opportunity to start a totally different type of company the AWPB. I’m sure you can now understand why I feel so very strongly about the services we offer.
If I can offer you one piece of advice, in life you have to take chances and go after your dreams. Persistence, ambition and courage can pay off a 100 fold. So take a chance and join me in this land of opportunity, I think you’ll surprise yourself at what you can achieve.
