We had the good fortune of connecting with Eric Ramsey and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Eric, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
The thought process behind starting my own was to see how I could add another stream of income to help increase our household income.
What should our readers know about your business?
Ramsey Security is the name of my business. We are a proud black owned Security company that provide personal, private and executive services to anyone who needs it.(Your safety is our first priority). I got to where I am today by waiting my turn. I helped several friends in the Security profession grow their business over the yrs but after several cries from friends and relatives about having my own company I decided to be like Nike and just do it. It wasn’t easy and it’s still a learning process. I overcame the challenges by staying diligent in my pursuit to bring the best security company no matter what stood in my way. I want the world to know that no job is to good for Ramsey security no matter how big or small the budget.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my best friend was visiting for a week I would take him to several locations in the area. Where we live would be first and that area is Leimert Park. It has a home grown feel and Post and Bean sets the standard for places to eat. There’s also Dulans if he wants soul food. If he wants more upscale I would take him to Beverly hills where he can eat at Maestros and shop all the name brand stores. Lasty I would take him to Hollywood so he could visit the famous sign and see all the legendary names on the Hollywood walk of fame.
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?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my wife Nicole Ramsey.
