The story of Raymond Hill, the founder and owner of New Jersey-based Sequin City, is like reading a good book that has a happy ending. In the middle are all the ups and downs that keep you guessing how it’s all going to turn out. But for Raymond Hill, it turned out very well. Basically, he was fired from his sales job–get this–for making too many sales, then started out on his own and eventually bought the same building where he worked before.Raymond’s success story
Raymond owns the only sequin manufacturer in the country. But ten years ago, he was actually fired from his sales job because the owner didn’t want to pay Raymond his commissions. Guess he didn’t think Raymond was going to be so very good at his job to reach over $1 million that entitled him to commissions. In fact, Raymond was so good that when his boss fired him, Raymond called all his customers to let them know he was going out on his own, and they followed him.
Ten years after the firing incident, the company Raymond had worked for went out of business and Raymond bought the building to house his own business, Sequin City. Not only that, Raymond is now sitting at the very same desk he used when he worked for the previous company. Now that is sweet!
