We had the good fortune of connecting with Vernon and Sharetta Scott and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Vernon and Sharetta, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
Our Business helps the Community by providing a Space that most New and Small Businesses can’t afford. By doing so they are able to Make Money to provide for Themselves, their Family, and pay for Everyday Living Expenses. Which in turn brings more Opportunities and Jobs to our Cities. It promotes a Healthy Economy. It reduces the Crime Rate. As well as Inspires others to Make a Honest, Profitable Living by showing Familiar Faces from our own Neighborhoods who are actually doing it.
What should our readers know about your business?
We are a Small, Family Owned, and Operated Business of Businesses. We started with our own Small Savings, Lack of knowledge, and Inexperience. We continue to Grow yearly. Having to do and experience everything just about on your own makes you appreciate everything so much more. Not to mention that you learn all of the mistakes in business the long, hard way. We are still learning til this day. Which is why one of our Goals is to make things easier for others starting out in Business. It is not easy at all running a business, on top of having a big family. But it is manageable with the right applied knowledge. A few things we learned are, Gain knowledge of your particular business. Apply what you learn. Document everything. Learn as go, and Value your Customers.
We want the World to know that People Make The World Go Round. We are all the same when it comes down to it. We all want a Happy, Healthy, Safe, and Successful Life for Ourselves and our Families. Business and Everything in Life is so much more Easy when everyone works together through Love and Happiness for the Greater Good. We are Successful because we continue to work to bring Success to Others.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?

It also helps the world by Media Outlets such as Shoutout Atlanta magazine reaching out to Small Businesses around the world and sharing our stories. It shows how much we are all alike and connected in some way or another.
