Please tell us about yourself Mr. Quinones, 

1. What quality do you think is the most important to become a successful community business member?

EVERYTHING! From mentoring to partnerships to community clean-up efforts, you have to be motivated.


2. When did you realize you wanted to own and run your own business?

When I was a kid, my parents were entrepreneurs. You grow up with it, you just have the expectation.


3. What would the best advice you could offer a  young business entrepreneur?

I learned ambition at Nightingale Middle School; I had a computer science teacher that used to talk about people like Steve Jobs and being an independent thinker. Be your own you. Be yourself and have no fear to do it.
