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

Hi Troy, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
It’s something that I thought about for a long time. You have to work hard in life to get to where you want to go. Since you have to work hard anyway, you might as well work for yourself. I didn’t want to be someone that made someone else rich. I wanted to be someone that made myself well off instead.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I don’t think I am much different than anyone else. I just wanted to do something else. I wanted to be in charge of my own destiny. That’s what inspired me to launch Tee, The Writer. Definitely wasn’t easy. Been one of toughest challenges of my life. But that’s the nature of being in business. You learn to never get too high during good times, or to get too low during low times. You just want people to know that Tee, The Writer is all about preparing documents that are second to none.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
LA Live, Staples Center, Dodger Stadium. Point Fermin in San Pedro. The Watts Towers. The Grand Central Market. These are just of the spots that I would love to check out.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Well, to begin I want to thank God for both the opportunity to have my business and the ability to run it. I’m thankful for the support my mother gave to me. I’d like to thank the customers that have put their trust in me. And I promise to just continue to do the best that I can for as long as I can.
