The American Dream can be many things–migrating to the United States and starting from zero, or being able to grow in the corporate world. Like the many different people that make up this country, the American Dream itself is different.
Herman Dolce’s American Dream had always been having his own company and achieving financial freedom through it. As a first generation immigrant from Haiti, achieving this gives him a special sense of pride.
After a trip to Italy on the babymoon of his first daughter, Herman was motivated to start his company. He had enjoyed the trip so much that he was dreading going back to work. This is when his brother motivated him to start his own company and start his path to financial freedom.
Once he was motivated by his brother, Herman started Bella Sloan Enterprises a financial services company named after his first born. The company educates clients on credit and repairs their poor scores. They also help startups and medium-sized companies get business credit/funding. Their mission statement is, precisely, “the American Dream.”
Two years after starting Bella Sloan Enterprises, Herman was able to quit his six figure job. His main advice for those who are starting a business is to focus on what is important to yourself and on what is the mission of the business.
For Herman to achieve success, mindset was also crucial–given that it allowed him to understand his daily goals in building his brand and in providing the best service possible for his clients. If no one was going to believe in him, he had to believe in himself.
Now that Herman is on the path to financial freedom, he can look back to when he decided to start his business. He was on a train to visit the Tower of Pisa in Italy and had realized he wanted to take the same trip whenever he felt like it–he quickly realized he could only do this if he started his own company with his own hours. But back then this could have been overshadowed by fear easily.
With this in mind, Herman is headed to his next projects, which include entering into different private sectors. He is in the process of working on multi unit buildings in Cleveland, Philadelphia and Baltimore, in order to work on his original passion: real estate.
Herman will continue to differentiate himself from his competition for his consistency. He provides the exact same service to anyone who comes to him, whether it was a free consultation or a $5,000 ticket client. For him every client is important. Especially now.
