Entrepreneurial Lessons Learned: Samier Chavez Shares His Journey on Building Multiple Companies

Starting a business from scratch can be a challenging task. It is a journey that requires hard work, resilience, and overcoming obstacles. Samier Chavez, a successful entrepreneur from Moorpark, California, knows this all too well. Through his journey of building multiple companies, he has learned valuable lessons that he shares with aspiring entrepreneurs.

Finding Success After Struggles

Samier’s journey was fraught with challenges and obstacles, making it far from easy. He was expelled from high school for fighting and struggled with ADHD. However, he succeeded in a continuation school that gave him the individual attention he needed to graduate with a 4.0 GPA. 

After high school, Samier tried to attend college but eventually dropped out to start his first company. This screen-printing business catered to big-name brands like Microsoft, Urban Outfitters, and Hot Topic.

Mentorship Matters

Samier’s journey took a significant turn when he met an older gentleman who became his mentor. This individual, who had an office a few doors down, took Samier under his wing and taught him the secrets to his success. Together, they opened several companies and became great friends and business partners. This relationship taught Samier the importance of mentorship and how having someone to guide you can significantly impact your success.

Focus on Quality Over Quantity

Nowadays, Samier focuses on the quality of his time and health, working only on projects that add more jobs to his country or are unique. He learned that it’s not about how many companies you have but rather the quality of the companies you build. This mindset allowed him to focus his energy on building successful and sustainable businesses that positively impact society.

Overcoming Obstacles

Samier’s journey was not without its challenges. He faced public scrutiny, lawsuits, tough acquisitions, bad partnerships, and even being scammed. However, he never let these obstacles deter him from his goal. Instead, he learned from these experiences, becoming more robust and resilient. These obstacles taught him the importance of having a support system, staying focused on his goals, and being adaptable in the face of adversity.

Perception is Key

Samier also understands the importance of perception in the business world. He wants to avoid being seen as someone who easily sells the idea that anyone can become an entrepreneur. Instead, he wants to be perceived as a real individual who has been through the ups and downs of building a business. He understands that business is tough but worth it if you’re willing to put in the hard work and dedication.


Samier’s journey in building multiple companies has been one of resilience, hard work, and dedication. He learned valuable lessons along the way that he shares with aspiring entrepreneurs. His focus on quality over quantity, mentorship, overcoming obstacles, and perception are all essential factors that contribute to his success. Samier’s story reminds us that anyone can build a successful business with the right mindset and determination. Additionally, his experiences offer invaluable insights for aspiring entrepreneurs, reminding us that anything is possible with determination and hard work. As we look to the future, we can learn from his example and apply these lessons to our journeys toward building successful companies.
