    Good to meet everyone!

    My name is Christian Lutz-Orozco and I live in Chestermere Alberta with my wife and three kids. I was an Infantryman with the Calgary Highlanders from 2015-2019.
    I am new to the world of entrepreneurship and am keen to learn as much as possible from both the course and fellow participants. The idea I am currently working on is trying to start up a local security company – though the market does have some big competitors, it seems that my area hasn’t tapped into it, and there seems to be a big need for it (big spike in local crime, law enforcement cant seem to keep up, lots of property crime, theft/vandalism), so just trying to fill a local need (and hopefully make some money for my efforts)
    An interesting fact about me is that I am a big nerd and love to podcast and work with social media on the side which Im sure will prove advantageous as a skill when it comes to marketing.
    My questions for the course are mostly financial in nature (taxes, organizing payrolls etc.) as I said I have little experience with private business ownership – that being said, I am keen to learn and soak up as much as possible from everyone!

    Hi Christian,

    Are you thinking about a community-based company? What came to mind was the Block Parent campaign that was popular in the 70s and 80s, which I heard has recently gained interest in re-establishing. It’s not just about putting a sign outside or a sticker in the window, but more so about how to build the clientele. Just a quick thought I had. It might not work for you, but perhaps there is something in their model that would peak your interest.

    Do you want to chat about financial management systems and processes? If you have a system now, great. If not, I can help you create one.
