We had the good fortune of connecting with Corey Aiken and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Corey, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
Hardwork, determination and creativity are all attributes that has helped me succeed. As an entrepreneur, you are your own boss and must therefore push yourself.
Unlike what we often see on social media and television, success often comes with consistency over time.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My wife and I own Carolina Gamerz, one of the top entertainment companies in South Carolina. The scope of our services include: a luxury game theater, tactical laser tag, archery tag, Knockerball and foam parties. In less than 2 years, we’ve served hundreds of families, churches, nonprofits and businesses. We are the only company in the state to house all of these services under one roof.
Getting started and where we are today was definitely not easily. We are not apart of a franchise, and we did not have a blueprint to follow. Nevertheless, our faith, hardwork and determination has worked for us.
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.
Charleston is a beautiful city, with a lot to do and see. One thing I love most, is all the wonderful food we have. Some of my favorite food spots are: Pages Okra Grill, Bear E Patch, Slightly North of Broad, Halls Chophouse and Toast
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I have the honor and privilege of doing life everyday with my beautiful wife. She’s the first person to hear the next business idea, and her work ethic in her own business is inspiring as well. Any success that I currently have or will have, she certainly plays a big part in!
