NAICS: 332 Fabricated Metal Product Manufacturing
Description: American Manufactured Safes and Vaults
I decided to go into business even though I had no idea what I wanted to do. I took some ideas of mine and thought maybe I should put those ideas to use in a business. The only goal I really had in mind was to be successful at something before my time was up. Lucky for me, after only a couple years I was able to take off from working at home to having my own building where production could take place for my product. I still didn’t have any other goals in mind at the time, but my hope to be successful was all the drive I needed to push my business forward. The business seemed to be going in a certain direction and I just followed it along with the best of my ability.

NAICS: 238 Specialty Trade Contractors
Description: Installing Kitchens
Ever since I was a child I have been around this type of business because of my family. My father first introduced me to this business and I quickly got the hang of it. I thought about leaving the business when I was in my late teens but everything I tried to do just didn’t fit me. I eventually came back to help my father and grow his business even more. Over time as I grew older I decided to move to the united states. My initial goal was to move to the states and start my very own business there. After I moved and got settled in my new goal was to just make an honest living and I eventually did just that over time.

NAICS: 532 Rental and Leasing Services
Description: Laundry room machine leasing to aprtment complex
Mechanics, this would have been the perfect asset for me, since laundry machines can break down it would have saved me long hours in trying to figure out how to repair them it took an additional year and saved me time because it took an additional year to get my business up due to the inexperience I had. Business Administration, I knew nothing about business and budgets, I was scammed plenty of times due tGrowing up in Venice, there was a lot of poverty, I would see some of my friend’s mother’s travel far to get their clothes washed at the local laundry mats, I thought it would be so convenient if their apartment complex had on site laundry rooms, just like the ones on the other side of town. I then began researching how much laundry equipment was and enrolled myself in repair classes, because I thought I need to get into a business which I understand and know. That was my beginnings, I purchased laundry room equipment from an old man who was retiring, biggest break but also a great hurdle. The old man who had been in the laundry room equipment business for years had a reputation, now here comes a young white boy to take over and as you can imagine I was not welcomed well. I had to learn to understand the apartment owners their background and culture.

NAICS: 315 Apparel Manufacturing
Description: Financial and Apparel Manufacturing Consulting
My partner and I both have had a lot of experiences in what we do and we thought what better way to build our own business than to do something we are extremely good at and have a proven track record of delivering to the clients what they want. So, we decided to start our own company to share that wealth of knowledge. Our initial goal was so simple… to be able to find clients that would take a chance on two newbies that can talk your ear off to convince you for a chance and opportunity to let us deliver what they want!

NAICS: 541 Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services
Description: Photographer
I was being cheap and did not want to pay for pictures do decorate my home, so I decided to blow up some pictures I had taken throughout the years. As more friends visited my new place they motivated me to pursue photography, they all said I had an eye for this stuff. I originally wanted to be a travel photographer and for a while I was doing it and making decent money on it, but I realized that there is more money to be made in portrait and event photography so this is where I am now. I still do travel photography but not nearly as often as I would love to

NAICS: 721 Accommodation
Description: A hospitality guest-ranch
My journey into this business began sixteen years ago after my wife and I married and we decided as a couple what our passions, talents, and giftings were. We tried to find one common purpose in our marriage together which included putting together a vision plan that involved living and working on a hospitality guest ranch. We strived to pull together our strengths with both animals and hospitality to make our ranch a great environment for family get-aways and kids camps. We wanted to create a place where families and guests could experience the country. Our initial goal was to keep the property we live on by generating enough money to pay the bills. We wanted to keep this ranch which had become our life and needed funding to do so. We invite guests to stay with us in order to live the life style we want to. Fund the property so tat we could grow the business- prove the business model.

NAICS: 311 Food Manufacturing
Description: noodle manufactured
For me, it is family business, and it is kind of product segment that is not very attracted on the fore front like technology; so, my situation is kind of forced in. Get involve in family business can help my parent because they want to take more time off, and the way that I make it work is getting my MBA. Tight into everything, nothing is easy. It is much more than how hard you work. However, I end up liking it with the satisfaction of completing the task. Initially, there is something that family business needs, so I just go there, set them the goal and figure out what I need to do to get that goal. I have a lot of opportunities to leave, but it is my family business, I have no choice. When I pursued my MBA for the full time, I didn’t think about family business until I graduated. There were some good offers from couple big companies, big manufactures, finance and investment banking, but these jobs did not offer me the flexibility and curiosity that I needed. Then, when I have involved in my family business, I have the flexibility about timing and management, at the same time, I want to do things better for family business. Because of the environment, some those skills that I learn, I am be able to bring that back on the family company to make the operation more transparent, or to help company more organized and things flow better as products are more consistent.
