When I started this business four years ago I really wasn't sure what my future was. I knew I wasn't the only carpenter/woodworker in town and most of them had already made a name for themselves. With the support of my wife I decided to give it a real try.
It was a very slow start but with the help of great friends and family more and more people started to see what I could do. My first job as a business was given to me by a good friend who commissioned me to make a 12 foot long conference table for his movie company. Because I was very new to pricing out jobs my 60+ hour job only yeiled me a couple hundred dollars in profit. I quickly learned that sometimes getting your work visually out there was more important. That table helped land me jobs working on huge projects such as two Life is Beautiful festivals, tables for Downtown Las Vegas and a movie set. Those opportunities dramatically boosted my confidence in the ability for my business to grow. They also connected me to people who I am happy to keep working with and more importantly call friends.
Over time Creations By Jeff llc has been slowly but surely growing and I am very happily busy. Yes sometimes there can be crazy days but that is just the nature of the beast of owning/running your own business. In general I wouldn't have it any other way.
I will never be done thanking everyone who has supported me and my dream. Without you I would still be just a guy with a dream creating things no one would ever see.
