We had the good fortune of connecting with Jerel Anderson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jerel, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I never had luck with jobs. I didn’t sit well with someone telling me what I can do or how I could do it. I always noticed the people who seems to live freely had their own business. And even if they were stressed and I asked why would they do it. They always said the same thing, because it’s mine and when it’s yours no one can take it away from you.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’ve been drawing my entire life. I have done graphic design. Web design. Photography. Videography. And so much more. I created a business for the outcasts. For nerds and creative minds who want to see more out of life. For people who are tired of being overlooked. I created a business for entrepreneurs to have a guide in business. Someone to help walk them through each process.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.

Juaquin and Sanford. Both very prominent business. Both of them are who I’ve learned my business knowledge from. They allow me to take risks and try new things. I’m truly honored to work with them under any capacity.
