       About Me: Auran Shereef     

Konnex was founded in my college dorm room. After graduating from the University of Maryland I worked at a series of Dept of Defense companies. But when I was 24 I picked up a copy of "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. Upon reading the book I discovered "the secret" that lies within...Utilizing the "Law of Attraction" I manifested meeting the legendary Bob Proctor when I was 26.

After a serious Motorcycle Accident and getting a second chance at Life, I decided to pursue my dreams and start a software technology company called "Konnex". 

After a period of 3 months in a wheelchair and because of my amazing mother I was able to fully recover from my Accident.

After this motorcycle accident, In less than a year I built a successful software company, published multiple books and was interviewed on various shows.
