Tell us a bit about your business.
Here at MVG & Associates, we pride ourselves on providing stellar human resources (HR) support in all avenues of human potential. What inspired us to launch this company was a deeply-rooted passion for helping small organizations build a framework to help them grow into corporate powerhouses in their given markets and industries.
We serve the entire Los Angeles area and all of the U.S. What differentiates us from similar competitors is our competitive à la carte pricing and framework. We tailor what your company needs in terms of HR strategy and support based on a free workplace consultation before you commit to something. We also provide 24/7 support to our partners and work with our clients through all their concerns and projects until they are resolved and completed.
How has your business progressed recently and what do you attribute that to? Where do you see your business in one year?
This past year has been phenomenal for us. We have started building up our list of client companies and have started to grow our internal team to provide even more highly-dimensional HR services.
We attribute our success to like-minded associates who put their clients’ needs ahead of theirs. We listen to our clients before coming in and telling them what needs to change and how. We build long-lasting relationships and act as if we are part of their team. We want all our clients to ultimately succeed. Most companies fail due to their shortcomings in HR strategy and placement.
We see ourselves opening a corporate office in the Los Angeles area by the end of 2018.
What are your favorite tools or resources that help you do business smarter, and how have they made a difference?
I always leverage as many social media outlets as possible to connect with potential employees and clients. What sets us apart—from a business operation perspective—is our selective hiring process and experience in more than 20 different industries. We use and gain leads via platforms like LinkedIn to attract like-minded followers and business prospects in need of more tailored and personal HR services and support.
What advice would you offer to businesses like yours just starting up?
All successful entrepreneurs had a vision and stuck to it. It’s about staying grounded and finding that window of opportunity. Without a workable vision and ambition, nothing will move forward to fruition. It is our own mind that stops us from being great and pursuing things bigger than ourselves.
My advice to those entrepreneurs and those thinking of becoming an entrepreneur: Never take no for an answer. Push the envelope and don’t get bogged down by the details. Always take yourself out of the nitty gritty and look at the bigger picture. If one door or angle does not work or make sense, research a different path that makes a bit more sense until you have crafted your masterpiece and are ready to present it to the world. Always strive, on a daily basis, to be a better version of yourself than you were yesterday through meditation and constant self-reflection. Take constructive criticism from customers and build on it.
