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.
