Roberto’s turning point
Connecting Potential with Support: Branching out on his own

After working for over eight years for a home repair company, Roberto decided that he wanted to start his own small business.

“You feel better being your own boss. Aside from having a higher level of income, you are able to let yourself dream in this country. The strength of the economy [in this country] allows you to make your dreams a reality.”

He knew he had the skills and determination to make a better life for himself and his family, including his young children. So he started a re-glazing company restoring old tubs and making them look brand new. “Saving By Reglazing” works to restore the brilliance and former glory of older tubs and bathrooms instead of overlaying them with fiberglass or plastic.

He had the dream and the experience but was not sure about the specific steps he would have to take to start his business. Roberto connected with LEDC and, after only a few months, was able to turn his dream into a reality. LEDC’s coaches helped him develop a business plan that served as his roadmap for starting and growing his business.

He now has a pipeline of work built mostly from client referrals.
