NAICS: 722 Food Services and Drinking Places
Description: A fusion of Peruvian and Japanese food
My initial goal was security. I was looking at the future and a back up. I noticed years back that the economy was changing, and many people were losing their jobs. I started thinking about what would happen if I lost my job and this drive me to start a business as soon as possible. I had many different ideas about the kind of business that I wanted to start which did not include the idea of opening a restaurant business, but the Peruvian community led me to it. A friend with experience in the restaurant business and the lack of Peruvian restaurants pointed me in a different direction.

NAICS: 812 Personal and Laundry Services
Description: Barber Shop
Well I always enjoyed barbering, I started out as a barber.  I worked in a number of shops and none of them seemed to suit me.  Each shop I worked in seemed like it was missing something.   As I transitioned through shops looking for that "it" factor, I realized that no shop I worked in would live up to my expectations because it was not mine.   With the guidance of my mentor I decided to open my own shop  and run it the way I wanted.

NAICS: 315 Apparel Manufacturing
Description: Faith based clothing
My initial goal was to do something that I believed in. I was fully engaged in my church and wanted to do more. I was wearing faith based clothing one day when a kid came to me crying. He told me he had recently lost his mom and dad was an alcoholic. He was in dire need of help. As he read the scripture on my shirt something in his eyes changed. I thought to myself if a shirt can have this much effect maybe this is what I need to do. I rented my first storefront with the goal that if the shirts have this much power then I need to share them with the world.

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.
