“After having been involved in so many startup operations, I realize
d that I truly enjoyed the energy and excitement you encounter in the early stages of business development as weCurrent Photoll as with the challenges of the very small business. I saw that I had a knack for the issues facing the “little guy.””In my own early startups, I was frustrated because there were few, if any, affordable resources for the very small business. I figured things out the hard way, trial and error, success and failure… effective ways to learn, but very costly and generally painful.  There was plenty of help out there if you had bags of cash, but even that help was geared toward bigger business. There was nobody around to help me, the one man operation, the home based business, even a part-timer. I wanted to see that problem end, so I decided to follow my passion and Chambray Advisors is the result.”
