A lot of people wish they would start something of their own. However, it requires a lot of patience, dedication and positive approach to achieve the goals. Entrepreneur Ferrat Destine knew it when he decided to start his business. There’s also an interesting reason for him to start something of his own.
About his reason to start his own business and how he got the idea, Ferrat said, “I got my foot into business in the US with a laundry idea that came to me after I got my AS at Union County College in 2017. Back then, I used to drop my clothes for washing and ironing at the laundry like many others in my neighborhood. So I thought it would be possible to do the same thing in a different way, which would allow app online. I started working on the design immediately, but after creating a website, I realized that I was in for a lot of risks.”
He added, “I launched it anyway but it only survived for a while. I remember a laundry company that wanted to sign a deal with me, called me to say they were no longer interested, and that was it. After that, I researched the market and I thought a cleaning company could be a better option. I felt it would be perfect so I started from scratch, but it was not so easy. I had to wait for about a year before a customer called to inquire about my services. From then on other people have been calling, and I and my team have done a great job of meeting up to their expectations. We now have several repeat customers, and we hope to improve our services to better serve our customers.”
One admiring quality that Ferrat Destine has is his encouraging attitude and optimism. One often crosses a lot of setbacks when they start something of their own. However, Ferrat knew this and has ways to keep himself motivated. He shared, “I have always loved to support my community so much so that I could do anything no matter what. When the urge to start a business came, I went ahead against all odds. I just wanted to stop wavering and face my dream heads on and getting on with my business was the best way I could do that.”
Along with his business, Ferrat is also fond of writing. He also indulges in recreational activities. So how does he manages to balance his time? Ferrat Destine shared, “It hasn’t always been easy, but I’m doing my best to manage it all. I focus on the job when I have to, and I also spend time with my friends and family.”
Meanwhile, Ferrat Destine has some big hopes for his company. After 5 years, he wishes he is able to offer services in all the states in the US.
