Our industry has been challenged, you
know I mean? Everybody thinks that
security guards are night watchman, you
know? Rent-a-cops, door Rattlers…
Flashlights cops, you know that we get called all kinds of names.
When I retire, and I’m done with working and no longer in the industry I would like to
I would like to leave it a better place to work.
I was always an entrepreneur I was
always doing something to generate
capital to myself and my big brother of
course would take it away from me but
that’s another story. But I always knew I
was going to do something but I didn’t
know exactly what it was. I joined the
service I went overseas when I got back
from overseas I was only qualified to be
either security or law enforcement
officer and I’m just not built to be a
policeman. You know it’s just not in my nature.
So I did the natural course of things. To
support my family I got into security.
I worked for a local company which was Tack Companies International. Left the company
ten years later. I started as a security
guard and I left as a Vice President and I
knew then that you know I was going to
start my own security company.
The first thing I did when I started Blackstone is I reached out to the Better Business Bureau.
Their training classes and their skill sets
that they shared with me was invaluable.
That’s why if you’re going to
start something fresh, a new business, a
new idea, go to the BBB and they’ll help
I think the key to Accreditation for any
company is to be ethical and trustworthy.
For Blackstone to to have the Better
Business Bureau Accreditation, that’s
what it tells potential clients. That’s
what it tells the general public.
That we’re credit at means were
honest, trustworthy, reliable, and ethical.
Blackstone always takes the high road no
matter what. It costs us money, we take the high road.
It doesn’t matter I think
every business should be held accountable for their ethics.
We take it very seriously and I think everyone else should too.
