Kansas Soldier Starts Business While Deployed
Kansas City (PRWEB) May 15, 2011
Starting a small business is no easy task. Small businesses face many challenges such as capital restraints, taxes, marketing, economy uncertainty, but now add the difficulties that come with being deployed and it makes things a little more challenging. Staff Sergeant Villanueva (Eddie) a 15 year veteran with the Kansas Army National Guard has recently returned from serving in the Horn of Africa with the 2nd Combined Arms Battalion, 137 Infantry. He has many passions, but small business has always been at the top of his list. In 2001, Eddie left behind his first business to serve his country after the 9/11 attacks. Later in 2005, after starting his second business he was again called to serve his country in Iraq. Although Eddie thanks and credits his family for his motivation and drive, his deployment to Iraq ignited a turning point and a new view on life. On February 20, 2006 while on a mission with his team, Eddie lost a good friend to an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) attack. He remembers the drive and motivation that his friend carried and knows that no matter the odds, one must face life’s challenges and overcome them.
Eddie says it has definitely been very difficult to find balance with his passion for small business and serve in the military, “but you can’t let obstacles and challenges like these stop you from accomplishing your life goals.” While on his third deployment, he has converted down time into productive time to begin his new journey, EMegaBuy LLC. EMegaBuy LLC is an online shopping site that offers thousands of products ranging from wholesale ammunition, less lethal weapons, hunting gear, surveillance equipment, and more. EMegaBuy LLC is a Kansas City veteran owned company that seeks to accomplish customer satisfaction through quality products, service, and discounted prices. The company is becoming popular and customer base is growing fast with shoot range instructors/owners, law enforcement, military veterans, security professionals, and outdoor sport seekers. In fact, before the website was ready to take orders, Eddie gained strong support from his brother veterans by submitting orders on stand-by. With a background in military, law enforcement, and a pursuing degree in Security Management, Eddie has already established a solid support foundation to reinforce his efforts. He seems to be well focused and motivated to move forward and establish his company within the top ranks of the small business community. “I understand the odds for small businesses are against us, but I strongly believe that with a well established business plan, discipline, and the drive, these odds can be beaten.” EMegaBuy LLC officially opened March 11, 2011 and now that Eddie has recently returned, he plans to get involved with the local organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce, Better Business Bureau (BBB), and local non-profit organizations. In addition, he seeks to win government contracts on the federal and state levels as a veteran owned business. Eddie reinforces that in this downed economy businesses must continuously seek to improve and build relations that will strengthen small business efforts. He makes it a top priority to earn his customer’s business by maintaining effective communication and always seeking to serve their needs.
