Sean’s passion for building and construction began when he was a child who he loved creating and building structures out of blocks and legos. Fascinated by the architecture of his hometown, Chicago, Sean always knew he wanted to build structures and houses.

As an adult, Sean’s passion for seeing a project through and building something of value propelled him into the construction business. Sean honed his trade working on extensive reconstruction and repair of Navy barracks. He reflects that his time there taught him just how important your team is and how important it is for each member to work hard.

In January 2011, Sean started his own construction firm, fulfilling his lifelong dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Almost two and a half years later, Sean's business has grown and expanded, providing Sean with the opportunity to positively affect the lives of many individuals and their families. For Sean, the best part of his job is providing quality service in home renovation that not only creates a beautiful new space, but also restores and protects the special memories of the homeowner.

A loan of $7,332.90 will enable Sean to purchase equipment necessary to expand his construction business further. Sean will also use the loan to pursue a public works contract in San Diego to restore historic San Diego buildings. This is a huge growth opportunity for Sean and his business.

In the future, Sean hopes to grow his business to the point where he can add jobs to the community and mentor younger generations in his trade. Currently, Sean hires three part-time contractors as needed, but with further expansion, he can hire full-time employees and achieve his dream of passing on his craft.
