We had the good fortune of connecting with Armand King and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Armand, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process was “How do I create something that can help save lives and end the cycle of death and incarceration that has plagued the communities like mine for my entire lifetime?”
What should our readers know about your business?
We created an organization that connect with the hard-to-reach population in marginalized religions in San Diego. It is different from many other organizations because it is ran by people of the community, for people of the community. We got to where we are business-wise by connecting with the proper team to pull of the mission. Without a good team by your side, nothing epic is possible. It wasn’t easy but our persistence and hard work for almost a decade now has pushed us through the many growing spurts we’ve gone through.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take them to Downtown Gaslamp District to show them all of the buildings, eateries, and shops there. I would show them Seaport Village and view the Harbor as well. All you need in one area!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My brother Richard Wilson who was murdered at 21 years old.
