E-Clips originated from the desire to start a podcast about entrepreneurship, leadership, and inspiration centered around three fundamental traits of an entrepreneur mindset; perseverance, self-development, and self-discipline. Eric has been an entrepreneur for nearly 20 years starting his first business, a tutoring center, immediately after his M.A.T.S (Master of Arts in Theological Studies) program was finished. He had the business for three years and eventually sold it. He then moved into the insurance world working through Mutual of Omaha and later on moved to St. Louis to work with Morgan Stanley. Quickly while in St. Louis he and his wife had a drive to someday have their own restaurant and in 2008 opened Tani Sushi Bistro. Since then Eric has added to his portfolio of projects as a consultant in New York City, managing partner of Takaya New Asian, speaker, youth minister at Onnuri Reformed Presbyterian Church, host of E-Clips podcast, A YouTube digital dining experience called You, Me, and E, Owner of Asian Bowls in Greenville, Il, and President of Touch of Asia prepared meals. As well as sits on two advisory boards; Care to Learn and The Briner School of Business. He is most well know as a restaurateur but has a passion for entrepreneurship and desires to share his knowledge to help and assist anyone who is considering to take the risk. Eric feels he is still developing but has learned a wealth of information over these past 18 years which could help others get in front of the learning curve.
