We had the good fortune of connecting with Melvin Guzman and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Melvin, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Leave the fear of trying something new, starting from scratch generates nerves but that is adrenaline for me.

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?
Mel’s Builders and Desing Inc. we are a general contractor and as well a rough framing and carpentry firm. I always wanted to have a business, since a young age growing up in Honduras, having a business was my vision, I started working in construction in 2008, you know what happen with the economy, I started digging trenches and built my way up, I knew that process of learning will take me to the place I wanted to be, having my own business. I love construction and I really enjoy what I do. {Building our clients dreams}. quality work and being responsible is our priority, deliver projects on time and on budget, we take pride of what we do by providing outstanding customer services. building clients for life. my drive as an emigrant mentality is hungry for success.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love mother nature, I’ll take my friend to the Grand Canyon, Amangiri, Lake Tahoe, to eat 71 Above, Drink spire 73
