Editor’s note: The Millennials are a generation that are constantly plugged in and moving fast to make their mark on the world. CNN’s Quest Means Business is tracking four of them.

(CNN) - To examine millennial David Lloyd's business success, we look at his childhood and how his youthful drive led to triumphs in the business world.

"I think that as a toddler David always wanted to be first, the first out of the bath, the first into the car, that I think was a fairly distinctive thing about him in fact, he was quite a competitive child,” explains David’s mother, Sarah.

Sports loomed large in his childhood. "I think all of things, I think sport does teach you a great deal," Sarah says. "It teaches you fair play, it teaches you how to work with a team, it teaches you good communication, it teaches you how to cope when you lose – I think that's incredibly important. So I think in all kinds of ways sport kind of mirrors life."

    Now, if only that "sportmanship" actually conveyed to corporate management. VP's and executives seem best at skills such as playing golf, locking lips to a** and grabbing everything for themselves at the long-term expense of the company. I'm not sure if that's what you learn in junior soccer, but I'm sure it's why I have my own corporation.
