We had the good fortune of connecting with Dalano Hill and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dalano, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Since a young age I’ve had different “small” businesses. Most wild fall under a hustle. From taking the elderly trash out and using the money from that to buy candy to sell. To building and fixing computers. I’ve always had an independent mindset when it comes to business. They never lasted because they were simply “all about a buck.” This business is more about the messaging I can put out into the world. This business aligns with my Purpose.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a truck/delivery driver by day.(18wheeler) Most days I do 13-14hrs with 30,000 steps. Just to turnaround and put hrs in on the business. Most nights I get about 4hrs of sleep in. I started this business around 2½years ago. With support from my wife taking on most of the home duties and being a great mother to our 4 children, I’ve been able to devote plenty of time to my job and dream at the same time. Also trying to be a great father and husband simultaneously. Nothing worth something comes easy in most cases. But just like most things I’ve encountered in life, this did. Maybe it’s my outlook on life that makes me believe it was. Or understanding the man that learns how to fish will never go hungry. Through prayer, hard work, and my wife and children I’ve been able to push to this point. Through this process my children have been inspired to start their own business as well. So as far as what I world to know….. I’m simply satisfied with my children seeing a father that not only was a worker but a leader that pushed through. My story and brand speaks runs hand and hand. A person and a business that makes a statement without saying a word.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Well it’s Covid season so you better not come visit. If it wasn’t in usually a chill guy so a simple game night it’s where it’s at for me and mine.
