We had the good fortune of connecting with Jude Chavanne and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jude, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
As a collective of young individuals with varying skills, one of our co-founders realized that we could come together and utilize our talents while turning a profit. This peaked our interest seeing as each of us commonly shared an entrepreneurial mindset. We also saw this opportunity of establishing a business as a fun way to bond, create and to learn the process with each other.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What sets The Eclectic apart from others is that we take the time to be personable with our clients and to engage with them in a sense where they feels as if we cater to their individual needs. We never believed in a one size fits all model. This is one of the many aspects of our business that we are most proud of. Getting to where we are now professionally was not an easy road. There were bumps along the way that we had to learn how to fix quickly as well as adapting to unforeseen changes that we’ve encountered. Fortunately, our group consists of people who can get on the same page fairly quickly, preventing any catastrophic mishaps. An important we’ve learned is how imperative it is to ensure that in a business, all parties involved are on the same page. Otherwise, this can lead to confusion and ultimately affect the service provided by the business.
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?
We would take them to downtown Phoenix to have a stroll and to feel the heart of the city. Next we would take them to The Churchill to eat, drink and hangout at one of them more charming locations in the city. Then maybe take them over to Tempe Town Lake and enjoy the atmosphere of the newly built architecture and captivating scenery. We could take them to Scottsdale to enjoy some fine dining at Maple and Ash and Fogo de Chao, or AZ88 for the constantly changing art pieces they display to optimize the ambiance. For nightlife, we would have them visit Mill Avenue, Old Town Scottsdale or various locations in Phoenix such as The Van Buren, Cobra Arcade Bar, Hanny’s and so on.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Shoutout to all of the friends, family, local businesses, corporations and other clientele that gave us a chance to be at service to them in all aspects. Out of all the services in the valley that they could have chosen, they selected us. We appreciate that sincerely.
