Our Philosophy

The secrets to starting a small business are:

Guiding principals

“Entrepreneurs are risk takers, willing to roll the dice with their money or reputation on the line in support of an idea or enterprise. They willingly assume responsibility for the success or failure of a venture and are answerable for all its facets.”
—Victor Kiam, owner, Remington Products

Inspiration

“Capital isn't that important in business. Experience isn't that important. You can get both of these things. What is important are ideas.”
—Harvey Firestone, founder, Firestone Tire & Rubber Co.

Initiative

“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But, today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.”
—Nolan Bushnell, founder, Atari & Chuck E. Cheese’s

Make your own luck

“I made a resolve then that I was going to amount to something if I could. And no hours, nor amount of labor, nor amount of money would deter me from giving the best that there was in me. And I have done that ever since, and I win by it. I know.”
—Colonel Sanders, founder, KFC

 

“Supporting emerging and growing businesses in order to enhance communities and improve quality of life.”
