Creating opportunity through jobs.
Every year, we honor the achievements of our clients and their contributions to the local economy at our annual Celebrating Success event. This year we will be celebrating our 15 year anniversary from when we were initially created to improve the technology digital divide in our community to now evolved to help business owners better understand how to run a successful business. Leading to our big commemoration we will be interviewing a client to highlight their success story each week, 15 in total .
Christina Paz is owner of Siller Preferred Services, an employment agency that specializes in the hospitality and warehouse industry. Her company works closely with their clients to help them secure and maintain jobs that will allow their workers to grow their financial freedom.
Below is a Question & Answer we recently had with Christina.
Q: How has your career added value to your life? To the community around you?
A: I have more freedom, independence, and can support my family. Also, I take pride knowing my business helps workers support their family.
Q: What are struggles you have overcome?
A: Originally I had a partner. Now I have my business alone without my old business partner. It was hard to start, but now running my business is better.
Q: How long have you been working with EGBI and how have they helped you?
A: I have been working with EGBI for 5 years. I took a class in which Barbra Boeta was an instructor, as a Program Coordinator (now Executive Director). EGBI helped me successfully establish my business. They gave me a huge help and much support as far as business coaching and we office out of their incubation space. EGBI is always available when I need them. I highly recommend EGBI to others.
Q: What would you like everyone to know about you or your business?
A: I approach every client with customized advice to fit their situation and I pride myself on treating each client individually. Additionally, I greatly value my employees and create a family environment for the business.
