My dad has a metal recycling business. I've been working for him since I was eight years old doing scrap-yard stuff. That experience led me to take welding in high school.

Profiled Individual:

Guillermo Gallardo

But entrepreneurship is in my genes. At 28, I opened my own store using $50,000 from a loan against my house. It was just a small shop, but within a few years I could afford to open two more. Five years after I went out on my own, I bought the company I started at, after my old boss died.
