We had the good fortune of connecting with Dre Jose and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dre, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
There are two types of people throughout this world; Employees and employers. Employers grant opportunities, however employees accept those opportunities. Starting my businesses wasn’t just for myself, but for everyone who deserves an opportunity.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?
The unique thing that sets me apart from others is my “why”. Everyone wants to be a business owner or have the next big thing, but once that business is established then what? I’m excited about the future of my businesses. My support system and self-motivation have brought me thus far. Nothing has been easy, but that’s apart of the journey. Your “why” has to be great enough to keep you going through anything, despite the challenges that may come your “why” should be your anchor. Never quit is the biggest lesson I’ve learned, you will be told no more times than yes but remember your “why”. I want every soul to know that the sky is not the limit, it’s time we exceed that!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.
Located in Huntsville, AL it is a must I take that person to Big Spring Park and explore Huntsville. Being an alumnus of Alabama A&M University I love to show off my HBCU. I’m not a huge fan of eating out, so I would prefer to cook/grill. The unique thing about Huntsville is that everything is close in proximity.Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure.
