When did you first establish your company or brand?
2002 it was a big step in the right direction.
Did you ever get sleep building your brand up?
I have to say no when I first started no I didn’t get any sleep. My brand was everything I wanted people to know about wealth and finances, and I had to keep building to make that perfectly clear even if I never slept
What advice do you have for someone just starting their entrepreneur career?
Write down the vision and make a plain. Make sure that you have confidence in yourself and don’t give up even in your failures. Those are really your triumphs.
How did you get into your niche?
I started in many positions like Director head of the department supervisor, and I found myself dealing with finances more than I was dealing with people. It was exciting for me, making sure that other peoples money was in position to buy to expand and even to experience I then knew that it was time, but the one thing that really pushed me over the edge as I got out of it, and when I got out of it by the IRS, I knew then that it was time for me to dig deeper through the audit. I met a wonderful IRS agent who actually sent me to classes help me get out of the audit and taught me a lot when it came to the IRS regulations and policies , I then began to dive in deep. I knew that was my niche money, wealth finances. I went to school to training classes certifications all that I could do to educate myself, and I still educate myself as of this date.
Was it hard to start your business?
I cannot say it was hard. It was challenging as I begin to build my business. I began to build it while I was living in Tulsa Oklahoma and I dealt with a lot of people in the church that were in ministry traveling or either just churches, Weatherby brick and mortar or they were just community outreach. I started there, but I started building and I started saving every time I could to make my brain better to advance the needs of the people so once that happened I felt like I was going uphill not downhill so I was striving and that’s what you want to do in business is strive, not survive
What were some of the trials you went through when you first started?
The first trial I believe I went through was no one believed in me, but me the second trial I went through was I was talked about my other business colleagues that I would never make it the second trial I went through with dealing with clients now that was hard making sure that everyone was satisfied that’s not an easy job. You really have to know each client and by knowing each client you have to get personal with them not so much your personal but their personal.
What’s your goal for the next 10 years in business?
my goal for the next 10 years is to lend money in an asset lending space to those who don’t have the greatest credit on a business level so that their business dreams can come true, and to teach wealth classes, and coaching all over the United States to small business owners, and a start up business owners, to have my own online tax preparation, automated program set up, running and going so that everyone all of the world can file their Taxes online for a very cheap and economical rate.
Did your friends support your business when you launched it? If not why do you think not?
No I didn’t have a lot of friends in my world at that time. This was back in 2002 so there wasn’t a lot of support. I believe the reason why is because of mindset everybody wasn’t going in the direction I was going in and so I had to connect myself with those who know what wealth really meant who knew what riches really meant and more than anything in the financial industry so there were a lot of friends I had to let go of and I had to connect and make friends. Should I say new friends that understood my language, and understood with a financial industry would do for Corby businesses, small businesses, and those that were just starting up in business.
What’s something you haven’t done in your career yet that you always wanted to accomplish?
I want to create my own wealth, magazine, have interviews with many bank owners, CFO$ controllers, so that they can be a voice to how they made it how they started how it all began step-by-step.
