Small Business Enabler Back Story
I called my Grandparents—Kenneth L. Hobbs and Hazel Hobbs—Grandma and Gramps, but I could also call them My Business Inspirations.
In 2004, Gramps was diagnosed with lung cancer and given no more than six months to live. He asked me to “be around” for him and Grandma so they could stay in their home in Fitzgerald, Georgia. This was the community in which they had raised their only child—my dad—and where Gramps had operated his sign shop for more than 50 years.
During my time of “being around,” Gramps told me a lot about his decades as a small business owner and the lessons he learned running his business in a small, South Georgia (US) community. It was here that the seeds were sown, which eventually blossomed into my own small business.
Gramps lived two years longer than the doctors expected, and he never underwent treatment of any kind. Grandma and other relatives and friends also helped, and I treasure the time I had with them. My grandparents shared so much with me, not only the wisdom earned from 50 years of business experience but also lessons learned from their life experiences—truly a priceless gift.
My Grandparents’ Legacy, My LLC
For me, small business starts with the family, and my own business was born through conversations with my grandparents during the last years of their lives. My medium is different—I build websites, not signs—but the belief structure, principles, and ethics that served Gramps so well are the foundation of what I do.
