Why are you passionate about your business?
I want to bridge the gap between the customer and moving companies. Moving can be very stressful. I got into the business to relieve stress for customers. I want to provide valuable information and tips on moving to make things easier. If I did that, I did my job.
What are you most proud of in regards to your business thus far?
Exponential growth, it’s growing really fast. I’ve put a lot of work in to get it where it’s at.
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far as an entrepreneur?
Be organized. Create a plan and execute it. & don’t give up.
What advice would you give to someone currently in prison who would like to do something positive with their life when they get home?
Do what you say you’re gonna do when you get out. Lots of people come up with great plans while they’re incarcerated, but 90% never follow through.
Outside of your business, what is something that you love doing?
What does success look like for you and your business?
When I can pass out jobs like people pass out candy.
