I had many businesses before with other partners that didn't last long. Before getting into this business, I was a bit apprehensive. It took a long time for my co-partners to convince me to join them. At the end, I did join because there was a lot of potential going into the business. I saw that Power Plant would be built in an area that was being developed into a new community. The need for electricity was there.

One reason that we decided to get into the flower wholesale business was because major wholesale business were closing and this was our oppourtunity to bring out our wholesale flower business.The economy caused so many flower business to close in the area of Chino that it made me realize who was gonna provide flowers by wholesale and arrangements. We took the risk and our intial goal was just to get it started and later start earning in the ten thousands.
