We had the good fortune of connecting with Sahib Easley and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sahib, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Putting people first and profits second. We firmly believe that if you take care of the people then the business will come. We always want to do right for our employees and people. If we take care of our neighbors then they will take care of us!
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
It definitely wasn’t easy. There was and always will be scary moments, moments of feel ill-prepared, or everything under the sun goes wrong. I will tell you like I tell my youngest son: no matter how scared I am, what’s most important is my feet never stop moving. Keep going! Even if you do it scared, don’t stop. That’s what got me here today. My drive keeps me moving forward and accepting – even welcoming – the discomfort.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Family is my inspiration, more specifically, my mother. It was normal for my mother to work two different jobs at any given time. My work ethic comes directly from her. What I also learned is the power of opening your doors to your neighborhood. My mother believed in the power of family and friends, and she encouraged me to bring as many friends over and as often as possible. Even after the two jobs and long nights it was rare she would ever turn down company.
