Today we’d like to introduce you to Sheldon Davis.
Sheldon, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I worked for an well known- Home improvement company for 18 years, and I got to a point where I felt unfulfilled working for someone else and wanted to explore entrepreneurship, and branched out on my own. I had obtained a lot of knowledge in a wide range of fields over the years spent in the Home Improvement field, and while in College,and felt it was time to use this knowledge to do something that I was passionate about (Home Improvement), Passionate for ( Home Owners) and named my company after my number one passion, which is my daughter( Shelby).
Has it been a smooth road?
The road is never completely smooth, but nothing is, so I had to believe in myself and my capabilities to preserver through anything. When starting a business on your own and from scratch, there is only you to depend on to raise the financial capital, to come up with ideas, and to make decisions from your best judgement. That is why I would tell anyone who is thinking about becoming an entrepreneur, to go ahead and make the leap, because the best way to stay in business is to get into business in order to improve upon your business knowledge-base. You have to come up with strategies to market your services to the customers that demand them.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
