We had the good fortune of connecting with Robert Boyd Jr and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Robert, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I never believed I would be able to start my own business. I was inspired by my wonderful wife, Hesok. With her drive and passion to start her business, it opened my eyes to more possibilities that are outside of the traditional 9-5 job. I began to think about the support I would be able to give my family. I’m able to educate myself and family with the tools that our business brings. I asked myself “what is my passion?” I learned my passion is to prevent another family from going through situations that we went through. I learned my passion is to never let my ego prevent me from bettering myself or my family. Being able to build and grow helped me understand why I worked so hard at the 9-5 job, which is my family. I want to give my wife Hesok and our 7 year old son, Robert III, the life they deserve from me.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
This journey to where I am now wasn’t easy. We all know life and its people will always have its challenges. It took me a while to understand that. I’ve been grateful to have a close group of people that I’m able to reach out to be mentored. Also as a minister, I have my Christian foundation. Learning and understanding people can be like waves. Each wave moves differently and can’t be forced into a new direction but guided only. Being able to impact people, I’ve learned I had to understand them where they are in life and provide guidance toward their goals and dreams. Knowing the more I supported others in achieving their goals, my family would be taken care of. I want the world to know that my brand comes with self experience. People will get to know me, my experiences, and know that I’m relatable.
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?
If my bestfriend is visiting, I would go to buffalo wild wings, hiking, and/or just hang out with our family and chill out.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to give a shoutout to: 1-My wife Hesok Pittman-Boyd for inspiring me to think outside the box. Always pushing and encouraging me to go after what I believe in.
2-Kyle and Stella Crowl for coming into our lives and offering me the opportunity.
3-Chris Smith who taught me business and for pushing me to go beyond my limits because he saw something in me.
I want to thank God for shaping me into the man I am today.
