What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
I started my career as an executive in the record industry. I was able to gain success by always being ahead of the trends. But, the experience forced me to love the grind and hustle that comes from building your own business and providing solutions to others.
Tell us about your company and services.
BK Global Luxury Car Limo Service provides chauffeured transportation for organizations, individuals and special events. As the CEO and Founder, it is important that each of our clients have a worry free experience. We focus on the details, so that transportation is seamless and within budget. If your lifestyle calls for services to the airport, a night on the town, or special event, the BK Global Luxury Car Limo Service is your transportation solution.
How do you manage the competition with shared rides?
We don’t compete with shared ride service. Our clients want reliable transportation with consistent customer service. We build their expectations into the fabric of our business. Clients can set specific times for their arrival and departures. Our drivers understand logistics and build routes based on their expert knowledge. We provide flexibility and service our clients can depend on each time they schedule our chauffeured transportation service.
What have you found to be the most difficult aspect of being an entrepreneur?
The ebbs and flows of entrepreneurship require strong financial planning and a great team of people working with you to achieve the vision. My greatest achievements have been sustained by the team of people that lend mentorship, expertise and time to my vision. I invest in the vision by researching innovative ways to remain ahead of the ebbs and flows that come with entrepreneurship. The most difficult part of entrepreneurship is maintaining the vision when the current situation doesn’t reflect your plan and the best way that I’ve found to move forward, is remaining flexible and knowing when it’s time to pivot – while keeping the vision at the forefront.
How has the pandemic impacted your business?
We could not have foreseen the impacts of a national pandemic like COVID-19. It’s in these times that our entire team had to pivot. The BK Global Team updated our safety requirements for each driver. We’ve followed the CDC recommended guidelines to ensure both the safety of drivers and clients. We are extremely grateful that we were able to sustain our local business throughout the pandemic. We are hopeful that as people and businesses get back to their new normal, they will continue to choose businesses like ours that remain committed to quality service and client safety.
Where would you like to see your business in the next five years?
In five years we will expand our services to increase fleet options and national service. I want BK Global Luxury Car Limo Service to be a brand that people recognize and depend on for upscale service every time.We will remain innovative, client focused and continue to provide seamless chauffeured transportation service.
