Interviewer: It is exciting to have someone on this show who was at the wrong end of the law but managed to turn things around. It is my pleasure to welcome James Smith to this program.
James: Thank you. The pleasure is mine.
Interviewer: Can you share with the audience a little about your background?
James: My name is James Smith. I am a former inmate who became a very successful entrepreneur. My story has helped to birth new beginnings for many individuals and I will briefly highlight my journey. As a teen, I had no direction so I joined a gang. We happened to get involved in the murder of a youth and this led to my time in jail. Things turned around for me when I decided that I had to give a second shot at life.
Interviewer: Is there any striking event that led to this change of heart?
James: I believe that fate played a fast one on me. I knew that I had the potential to own a business. I did not know how this will be possible but I decided to take the bull by the horn. I researched about a few piano moving companies and https://Pianomoverssacramento.org/ seemed to light up a fire in me. I knew that it was the path for me to go.
Interviewer: How did you get to this great level of success in the Piano moving business?
James: I was released on parole and I knew that my time to actualize my dreams had come. Just like every entrepreneur, I started my Piano Moving business in Sacramento on a small scale. I pushed my life, energy and passion into it and the business began to flourish. I am not too surprised that I have enjoyed this measure of success. I will be opening 3 more shops in the US in the next few weeks.
Interviewer: Will you refer to yourself as a slow starter in life?
James: I have heard that term used in various circles but I do not want to box myself into any stereotype. All I know is that life gave me a second chance and I decided to take it with both hands. In my own concept, a slow starter is someone who is unable to birth the dreams that burn in his heart. I have seen such malady affect both the old and young. It has nothing to do with age, it is about the state of the heart.
Interviewer: What final words do you have for youths who may seem lost about life?
James: I believe that it is important for the young ones to go through school and get the basic training. This will help them when they want to go into business or pursue any course in life. Also, I will advise them to stay away from bad gangs. I made wrong choices which I do not want to experience. Life is good and we must take each opportunity that comes our way with both hands.
Interviewer: Thanks for the time Mr. Smith.
James: It is my honor to share this time with you.
