How’s business? Business is good.

One thing you wish everyone knew about your business: We help our neighbors and community by giving them the convenience of the big city in a small town, without the big-city pricing and greed. We are just a mom-and-pop family business — a disabled veteran who understands what its like to have to balance and struggle in today’s economy.

Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: We offer so many different services to our community — a five-in-one business.

Advice to young entrepreneurs: Hang in there. Don’t give up on your dream. Stay focused and be willing to ride the wave up or down. Learn from your failures, and enhance your successes.

Your first job: Stock boy at Pearland Market making $2 an hour

Your role model (in business or in life generally): Gen. Colin Powell

The key to a successful business is: Give it your all, but never give up.
