Favorite Success Quote
“Your imagination is your limitation.”
“Nothing comes to a sleeper, but a dream.”
Although no one could control mother nature, but in 2009 Hurricane Ike devastated the southern part of Louisiana and the Baton Rouge area, slowing down my business. Nearly lost everything. My home was nearly foreclosed on and my bank account went from a high six figures to being negative.
So many people were suffering financially trying to put there lives and homes back together and could not get approved for loans. So I decided to come up with something creative, and that’s when I had my “Ah-ha” Moment.
Entrepreneurial AH-HA Moment
I knew that I had to come up with something creative to change my situation I’m in. So I decided do my own in house financing. Everyone who comes in with a down payment (cash is their credit). So I got my own finance license and started my own finance company. Which now I have one of the largest Buy Here Pay Here dealerships in the State of Louisiana.
