Roy Hinson, founder of Mmbrs Only, values the self-directed life and flexibility of owning his own business, and has known he wanted to be an entrepreneur from an early age.
"My dad taught me early that you should work for yourself because the best way to be free to do what you want is to own the business," he said. "I knew if I wanted to have the freedom to travel and make my own schedule, I needed to own my own business. That's what started me on the path to find the type of business that I wanted to go into."
Mmbrs Only is an online retail market for watches, exclusive clothing, shoes, accessories, and jewelry.
"I conceived of Mmbrs Only after having trouble with a watch my mom got me for Christmas," Hinson explained. "I had great difficulty getting it back from the service department. Even though it was a high end brand, it was terrible service. When I curate the watches for the site, I limit it to those brands that provide great customer service and they don't have to be expensive to provide great customer service."
Hinson's advice for aspiring entrepreneurs is to prepare well. "Planning is key," he said. "Even though it never goes the way you plan, having a plan is better than having none and flying by the seat of your pants. Also, don't give up."
