My family has owned a big citrus supplier for the past 60 years.
Generation after generation has helmed this ship, providing citrus products to 50 states all over the country while being grown right here in our sunny southern weather conditions and humidity.
When I was young, both of us had so several oranges around the family beach house that I began to grow sick of eating them. My friends would crack annoying jokes about my family growing and selling round fruit, however it never bothered me all that much. It was nice consistently having the occasion to help out to get extra spending money as a kid, especially in high university. Instead of finding a task bagging groceries, I was put to work at a young age at the sorting facility. I saw firsthand how popularly my family’s business was regarded in the local and national community. For years I had considered opening a business of my own merit, constantly thinking about having some amazing eating establishment or adorable cafe in the downtown district. But those dreams have faded in recent years. I still get a lot of joy out of now working at my family’s commercial citrus business. To finally prove to them that I’m worthy of a management role, I agreed to get a brand new business degree from a local community university. But I’m not going to stop there any time soon, as I have researched nearby business development centers. Business development centers, or massive entrepreneurial centers as they’re also called, are a wealth of information for those who are actually seeking help, advice, and assistance with running dealers of all varieties and all growing sizes. You could learn skills for better staffing or finding the best commercial office space to rent as your loft business grows far beyond your garage. I’m hoping I can learn something that will be costly to my own family’s growing citrus business.
