What do you love about your job?

I love leading a group of committed employees who actually care about honesty, humility and service. Most employees have been here since the beginning and treat the company as if it were their own. Our clients aren’t just clients, they are our friends. Many people come in looking for both literal and figurative hugs when struggling with issues. What could be better than that? In under 6 years, we now have over 10,000 clients, and we don’t advertise. We are honored for the trust that is given to us.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

Being in the US Marine Corps gave me a huge boost in confidence to stand tall and take on the challenges of being an entrepreneur. My mother was the primary catalyst, as she was a small businesswoman with a huge heart. She owned an antique store for years as I was growing up. I watched her hug, pray and just be there for all who came in, She always wanted to emulate her authentic nature which, by proxy, drove sales. She didn’t have to be someone else, she just had to love people and honor them, and they wanted to return the blessing by shopping at her shop. If I can be a quarter of the person she was, I would have achieved so much in life and in business.
