We had the good fortune of connecting with George Flowers and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi George, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
During the pandemic, countless special events, including our wedding, had to be canceled, which was quite a hardship. We understood that after things returned to normal, we wanted to do something new and offer people a new and exciting service, and we felt that a booth that produces 360 degree slow motion videos delivering a fun interactive cinematic experience would bring smiles and joy back to people’s faces.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My background is pretty diversified. I came from a professional background working in finance and banking. I made a transition the last three years and have been working in tech. I have a bachelor’s degree specializing in Organizational Leadership which has increased my expertise. I’m most proud and enthusiastic about having my own business and the possibilities of the Photo Booth business as it evolves. We envision it expanding as time goes on into something much bigger. I got to where I am now by constantly believing in myself and not paying attention to negativity and persisting when things don’t go as planned. It has not always been easy but I accept everything as a learning lesson and retain a positive approach. Our brand 360 Photo Booth AZ makes sure to provide a 5 star experience for our consumers, an experience that is everlasting.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I prefer being outside when it’s not too hot. I find Sedona to be exceptionally tranquil and beautiful. That would be my destination. From there, we might return to downtown Phoenix, where the nightlife is especially vibrant on first Fridays. I’m a big taco fan, so I’d definitely take them to a couple restaurants downtown, like AZ taco boys and tacos Tijuana in the east valley.
The valley is filled with individuals from many walks of life, as Arizona is populated by people from other states and cultures. First Fridays and local swap meets are locations where you may meet some fantastic individuals, and these are two of my favorite places to visit.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
A huge shoutout goes to my parents who immigrated here from Belize and Mexico and have always supported me as a first generation American . I’d like to also shout out my Wife Laury who is my other half and is always there for me. Furthermore many of my teachers from elementary school all the way through ASU I’ve been lucky enough to have met some amazing professors. Lastly the novel The Alchemist by Paulo Coelh it has helped me learn more about myself and life.
