Are you a dreamer, risk-taker, or doer?

Primarily a doer. I am first and foremost a tasker and believe it is important to finish a task, to see it from beginning to end, redirecting one’s path when needed to obtain that goal. I tend to look for the big picture first so that I can focus on the details needed to get the job done; a goal with an end game.

Entrepreneurship is…

  • The act of starting and running your own business, your own venture, with considerable initiative and risk.

  • The art or science of innovation and risk-taking for profit in business.

An entrepreneur is a dreamer, a risk-taker, and a doer. It starts with a dream, mix in a little risk-taking, start the process of doing and you have a recipe for success.

As fellow entrepreneurs, we would love to hear about your business.

At Calling All Riders, my goal is to provide a professional and affordable bicycle transport service for athletes participating in bicycling events across the contiguous United States. My primary focus is on the Ironman triathlon events.

Our service paves the road to the events that challenge an athlete’s potential.

A commercial cargo van is the mode of transport with one driver. No need to take the bike apart for shipping, no reassembly, no adjustments; no exposure to the elements; ready to go for the event. No long drives for the athlete, saving valuable time and energy. Pricing will be job cost-based, taking into consideration ridership participation and event distance.

Who is your ideal customer?

My ideal customer is the athlete who has the fortitude to continually challenge himself or herself. Those who have a passion for road cycling. Passion and emotion drive performance.

What are your top tips for entrepreneurial success?

  • Entrepreneurial success requires both persistence and resilience.

  • Embrace responsibility, mindset and passion.
