We had the good fortune of connecting with Andrew and Katherine Trinkle and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Andrew and Katherine, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
We believe that establishing genuine and strong relationships with experts is the most vital aspect behind our success. We build friendship not to expand our business, but to grow professionally and personally. One cannot build its empire on its own. Guidance from successful people from different aspects of the industry is important for growth. They lead you to develop a more efficient process and smarter business strategies for higher quality products, better service and to prevent losses. Team work leads to constant learning, continuous process improvement, which are key factors to success.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We worked very hard to be where we are at today. The market is very competitive and we have had losses in the past that taught us lessons the hard way. However, we are distinguished through our pricing and our exemplary client service. With constant learning and continuous process improvement, we have developed a very effective pricing model, which we are highly distinguished from.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If our best friend was visiting the fun and exciting Los Angeles County, we will go straight to Malibu. It has so much to offer – beautiful hiking trails, diverse culture, wide array of culinary experiences, what else could you ask for?

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
We owe a lot to Bernie Gaps of Absolutely Fabulous! Events and Productions, Inc. and Ali of Persiano Events for always being available to assist with our questions, especially in operations.
