Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐Mr. Ahmad Harrith 314-261-7024 Owner-JLMS-ET?S 2/28/2012 Staci M. Harris ________________ Mr. Ahmad Harrith was born in Saint Louis Missouri in 1962. He was raised in Missouri but he spent a great deal of his time in Alabama where he enjoys country living. Raised as a devout Baptist he values family and has high morals and standards, he keeps GOD first. He is the youngest of three, he has two sisters. When he was just a small boy his dad would allow him to work on cars, lawnmowers, house projects and many other chores. He and his sisters had assigned chores and were always compensated with a weekly allowance. When he was fourteen he worked part-time for his father at the lawn mower shop. By the time he was sixteen he was able to save enough money to buy a car and pay cash. He received his education through the Saint Louis Public school system. He went to a technical High school in which his field of study was small engine repairs. In high school he did not lead the average teenager?s life; instead he was a work alcoholic. Immediately after high school he joined the army and is now a reservist. He was in the war in Iraq for a tour of duty. ...read more.

He saw an opportunity for growth and increase by presenting a business proposal to the suppliers and setting up an account where he could establish credit and a worthy reputation. The business plan was exceptional; it explained all the information required to make the plan concise, complete and compelling. He saw the opportunity for sales to increase if he could obtain contracts with companies such as Home Depot and Wal-Mart, were he would buy the refurbished mowers for a very low price. He would repair the mower and either resale or use for parts. He presented the business plan to the company?s and they accepted the proposal. Now Mr. Harrith are in accordance with two of the largest companies that exist worldwide all because he asked and overcame the emotion of fear. One of the other opportunities that he saw was to become a supplier and sale parts. He is in the process of approaching one of the largest suppliers of small engine parts-Oscar Wilson. Mr. Harrith has created a business proposal to present to the company to buy parts and supplies in bulk for a very reasonable rate. From what I gathered this would really be an excellent investment for the company and create a great deal of growth and increase. ...read more.

Conclusion

Although they did not approve of me investing, they did allow my husband to bring our lawn mower in for complete service, free of charge. Mr. Harrith would be like a supervisor sent from heaven; I would enjoy being his employee. This God fearing man would understand that I too am a God fearing woman and my family is the most important aspect of my life. Basically they are the reason that I pray daily to keep going and for the strength to endure my journey. I learned from the Harrith family that with mere determination and keeping your focus on God there is nothing that is impossible. I want to open a business and actually after watching and spending time with this family made me more eager to begin my process of entrepreneurship. I am aware now that a business plan is essential and not to be afraid to ask for what I want. There are a few things that I do not want to do, and the most important is taking out loans. Therefore I will need to establish a plan to generate capital and go to my family to ask for help and gather Angel investors. But after being with Mr. Harrith I know that I will need my own capital and not rely on others. The most important information I obtained from this entrepreneur was to NEVER give up and the family that PRAY together STAY together. ...read more.
