I entered the audio visual rentals industry through a former friend, Nicholas Steptoe. He and I were both DJs in Philadelphia and shared records, equipment, tips and techniques. I moved to Atlanta Georgia in 1999 while he was working for a now defunct audiovisual equipment rental company called Audio Visual Center on Broad Street. While I was in Atlanta I sold sheet rock and other construction materials. In 2004, Nicholas informed me The Audio Visual Center will be closing their doors and asked me to move back to Philadelphia. He wanted me to move back to Philadelphia because he was going to open up his own rental company and he wanted me to partner with him; his words. I declined the offer because I was happy at my job in Atlanta and was planning on a promotion there. Time passed and Nicholas asked again for me to move back to Philadelphia as his partner and help him run his business. I was not as happy as I was before iat my Atlanta job and was just passed over for promotion, so Il accepted.
When I moved back in September 2004, Nicholas had already started his new company and was pretty busy. Things worked well for a few months but we tended to clash on some business practices and different methods to grow the company. We also clashed on pay schedules and me getting a percentage of the business. I wanted to own some of the business and he wanted me to own none of the business. I subsequently asked, "if I found my own clients what with that mean?" He answered, "if you get your customers they will be your customers." I realized later I did not have to ask but it felt right to do so. Given that freedom I went on a pavement pounding mission to find my own clients. Nicholas did two great things to help me get started in my business launch. He allowed me to rent his equipment at half the price I charged my clients. Secondly he gave me one of my first and biggest clients Ballard Spahr, a Philadelphia based, International law firm.
I lost my business and used his equipment for a time. I aggressively reinvested most of the money I was making to buy my own equipment. After amassing a small sized inventory I started renting Les from Nicholas. We stopped keeping track of how much we cross rented from each other and stopped charging each other as well. Eventually Nick started needing more of my equipment then I did of his. Hard feelings developed and a story full of details I am not completely clear on, caused us to eventually fall out and never speak again. Today, into thousand 16 both of our company still exist on two separate sides of the city. I will always be grateful for the opportunity, training and life he afforded me.
