NAICS: 453 Miscellaneous Store Retailers
Description: Discount Retailer
I started working as a manager in one Giant Dollar store located in Ontario. After that i understood how the system worked and after three years of experience I decided to open my own store that is located in West Covina. I consider many factors that help to start my own store because I knew the buyers and also the wholesale's owners so that has a big help for me. My initial goal was to perform good my first year because three stores around this area I am located were out of business by the first semester.

I decided to get into this type of business because learning how things work fascinates me. All throughout college i did so-so in all of my classes besides engineering. I like doing things that are hands on. A lot of people complain about working but i love it. Sometimes i work 5-16 hour days in 1 week and i dont mind at all. I love what I do. I dont have an initial goal in this business. I just want to keep doing the things that i do, and provide for my family.

NAICS: 334 Computer and Electronic Product Manufacturing
Description: Computer Repair
Generation X Computers was hatched in February of 1999. I got the idea one day when I look at my paycheck and realized that this wasn't what I want for the next thirty years of my life. I was tired of the paycheck to paycheck routine, and it wasn’t getting any easier for me to pay the new bills I was accumulating on my same old paycheck. When I first noticed the incline of technology was being directed to the demand on computers. The times were rapidly growing and a new generation was peaking thru the society, there go why I named the company Generation X Computers. When I seen that more and more people were using the computers for their daily activities, I couldn't help but want to be part of a growing industry and try to capitalize on the growth that I saw approaching. My dream was always to own my own company and build an empire from it, and today it still is my long term goal to accomplish this for my future children.

NAICS: 334 Computer and Electronic Product Manufacturing
Description: Revolutionary shopping cart
As an entrepreneur, I was looking for an innovative way of making shopping easier and faster. I was also looking for something that had never been done before. By creating this computerized shopping cart, not only is it something so new and innovative, but it also is environmentally friendly because you no longer have paper coupons and everyone benefits from using it. Of course, I was also looking for something that I could do that would be a great way to maximize my return on my investment as well as revolutionize the way we shop.

NAICS: 423 Merchant Wholesalers, Durable Goods
Description: Musical instruments wholesaler and repair
The reason I got into this business is different from the reason I started this business.  It was a fluke that I got into this business, back in 1969 when I graduated high school.  I started working as an apprentice because it was cheaper to learn how to fix my saxophone than to keep paying for repairs and maintenances.  Back then I was going to be a famous musician.  Years later I found myself working long hours, being harassed, and not getting paid on time so I thought it wouldn’t hurt to try and run my own business.   I opened my business in 1988, with the idea that even though it’s a lot of headache at least I’ll know when I’m not going to get paid on time.
