I decided to get in this business because, back in the days I did not speak good English, one time tried to work for a factory were the managers were always in a bad mood, so I decided to stay away from these arrogant managers and start my own business at my own availability. Even though it was somehow intimidated to knock door by door to get business I decided to start the venture, were as of today, I am happy I continue with my business, because my initial goal was to make more money than just the minimum wage, and as of today, I am glad I followed my dream.

NAICS: 713 Amusement, Gambling, and Recreation Industries
Description: Fitness Center
I began my journey in the fitness industry over 10 years ago after graduating from college when I was hired as a personal trainer. I had always been active growing up with baseball being my passion. I played college baseball and even reached the minor leagues but after that chapter of my life ended I got into the fitness field. Being a personal trainer, I learned the ins and outs of running a gym while also growing a customer base that would come in handy down the road. Over time I started to get the idea in my head into maybe I should open my mine fitness center because I was tired of making someone else boatloads of money while I only got a small cut of it. Becoming my own boss was the greatest feeling to have because I was finally getting my fair share of the hard work I put into the business. Being able to make a comfortable living while also helping my community in reaching their fitness goal is the reward I love must.

His initial was he felt that being a chiropractor was his best fit for his future. He also told me to always chase your dreams and try new things because you never know what opportunities you could be missing out on. Becoming a chiropractor was his primary goal from the beginning. As a child, he was involved in many sports and would always get hurt and so would his teammates. He was very interested with how the body healed and what little things you can do to heal quicker. I feel that following your dreams is the best way to go, if you feel you are being called to do what you love then I believe you should go for it and not hold anything back.

NAICS: 812 Personal and Laundry Services
Description: Hair Salon
I believe people get into the businesses they are in, not through real thought, but more by falling into it. In my case, it was the same thing. My sister opened a salon in 1991. I was in high school and I was able to slowly manage the place and then becoming partner and then owner. My initial goal just like anyone else was to how to get by and how to pay bills. And then just like any other entrepreneur, I begin to understand there is a broader influence that I have and can achieve. So, then I changed that goal into how I affect other people. How can I improve other people’s lives? And then at that point life starts to really improve.

Growing up around these business I realized that. I enjoyed the work environment I saw myself doing these type of work in the future when I heard my dad an brother wanting to open their own pallet yard I wanted to get involved so I started to ask relatives for advice on how they were able to be successful. It would come in handy when we were finally ready to start it up.

NAICS: 445 Food and Beverage Stores
Description: Convenience Store
I started my business because most of my family members have their own businesses. I decided to get into this type of business in particular because it provides necessary items, hence it will stay in business a long time. My initial goal with the business was to make a profit. Convenience stores are necessary everywhere, especially in this town. The only supermarket around here is on the outskirts of town and most people don’t want to bother driving all the way over there when they can simply walk down the street and pick up what they need. Most of the time they won’t bother going to the supermarket because our prices are just as good as theirs. People also have easy access to the local farmer’s market, but they close by 2:00pm and my store closes at 10:00 pm. The store is usually busy and most customers return frequently.
