In 1992, Hasan entered the University of South Carolina as a Biology major with his sights set on medical school. While there he and a close friend founded Scholastic Profile, a full-service barber shop in the Russell House located on the campus of University of SC. This venture was intended to provide the funds needed for them both to pursue careers in medicine. While operating Scholastic Profile, Mr. Ross-El also interned at one of the country's largest investment firms. It was there he realized his true passion and the experience led him to the financial services industry in 2008.

At an early age he can vividly remember losing his childhood home to foreclosure as a result of his families’ financial struggles. Hasan saw the need to educate others on how to create generational wealth and find financial independence. The cultivation of practical, theoretical, and personal experiences fuels his passion to encourage, enlighten and empower others to do more, have more, and worry less. Hasan’s primary markets are attorneys, business owners, and high net worth individuals. Nevertheless, Hasan is willing to assist anyone willing to live by design and not by default.
