As a kid I have always dreamed about having my own car company.
In the late 80s, my father opened a company that sold beverages to restaurants & supermarkets around the island. Besides the beverage company he sold tires from all sizes for trucks and cars.
In November 1998 he started a car import & rental business. I was 5 months old at the time. He was a young successful third generation entrepreneur after following in the footsteps of his father and grandparents.
In 2oo6 he started a new company which specialized in transporting and renting heavy trucks. Having a car rental business and heavy trucks business at the same time was challenging.
After running the car rental successfully for more than 16 years, he decided to sell it in 2014. After he sold the car rental, i started to realize that there was something missing.
I remember waking up every morning asking my father why he had to sell the company. It was in July 2018 when he asked me 'would you like to start renting cars?' It didn't take me a second to give the answer, my answer was, ''HELL YEAH!''
I am now the fourth generation entrepreneur after following in the footsteps of my father, grandparents and great-grandparents.
If you're young, and you are entrepreneurial, your single greatest asset is your age. What they fail to tell you in school is that being ''older'' doesn't necessarily make you ''better'. What it makes you is different!
Starting a business and being an entrepreneur at the age of 20 is my opportunity to build up my future.
I truly enjoy cars and it is my passion.
