Profiled Individual:

Guillermo Gallardo
President
Complete Welding & Cutting Supplies
Pomona, CA

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.

I've been in a wheelchair since I was six years old. I first tried welding when I was a kid. I liked the fire and using my hands to make things.
