GL: Tell us a little about your business?
SM: We are a business to business company that manufactures and packages dietary supplements and nutraceuticals, including vitamins, sports supplements, and meal replacement powders. These products are specially formulated from the best raw materials available. I started the company because we knew we could penetrate this saturated market by offering better service. We grew the business by focusing on value for the customer in every single transaction.
GL: What’s your favorite part of running your business?
SM: Working with people. I absolutely love serving our customers and helping them improve their business with something that didn’t exist for them before we came along.
GL: Why was it important to you to hire a business lawyer?
SM: As we were growing we realized we needed protection and counsel on big and little things. There are situations you face when doing any kind of business, whether with vendors, employees, clients or anyone trying to take advantage.
GL: What made you go with Gouchev Law?
SM: The way the firm fights for each client. We wanted a legal team that is not only good at what they do with a great reputation; we wanted someone who would be a fighter for us. I don’t believe in giving up on anything and wanted the same quality in my attorneys. I certainly found that in my legal team at Gouchev Law.
GL: Has working with us contributed to the success of your business?
SM: Absolutely. Gouchev Law has been a big part of the decisions we have made, and their counsel has helped us be more successful. We realize that when you take care of the little things early on with the right counselor, they don’t turn into big headaches. We’ve worked with other law firms in the past and we weren’t completely happy because we didn’t feel guided, it was more about putting fires out. Gouchev Law is proactive so the fires don’t start.
GL: What’s the most important thing we’ve helped you with so far?
SM: Protecting ourselves against companies that tried taking advantage of us. Working with Gouchev Law, we now know when to take measures and pay attention to things that we would have glossed over in the past, which have cost us time and money we could have saved.
GL: How does it feel to have a lawyer on your side?
SM: Safe. And you know, as an entrepreneur feeling safe is priceless.
GL: What’s your advice to fellow business owners?
SM: Working with a business attorney that has a great reputation and delivers is essential to all businesses. Look at reviews online, and with every service provider make sure you get a good vibe.
GL: Tell us one standout thing you’ve learned along the way?
SM: I know this sounds sort of canned, but really do ask the attorney before making any deals. I thought I could figure it out myself. You know, use Google for some contracts and answers, but some things need a professional that could really make a big difference to your company and several ways.
GL: What’s in store for your business?
SM: Lots of growth we hope. Plans are to add people and get a big facility.
