how it started......
Everything, like all other great ideas, started with one thought, “how can we work for ourselves?” Charles and I sat up putting our heads together on a business venture and something sparked. Being a musician transitioning from one place to another left Charles feeling limited with accessing persons/churches/bands that needed a keyboard player. “Why don’t we have a place that can provide this information?” A few months earlier, I found myself in need of a makeup artist and hair stylist that was good, affordable and available. Here came the question again, "why don’t we have one centralized place that can provide this information?"
As consumers ourselves, we understand the frustrations and needs of other consumers and can provide an effective solution. As young entrepreneurs, we are directly connected to many other small business owners and will leverage these relationships to build a network of sharing and promoting business and economic growth. Upon these principles, we have built a centralized, online marketplace of vendors with many different specialties and services to offer.
With the proliferation of social media, there is an abundance of information available to consumers everyday with the click of a mouse. With this understanding that word-of-mouth has now been digitally modernized, What Ya Need was born!
