SEASON 1: EPISODE NUMBER: 5

It started as an idea…and they didn’t know the first thing about paper products.  With a small loan for inventory and a truck, these two paper pioneers set out to pave their own trail to success.

It started as an idea. And real talk – they didn’t know the first thing about paper products. 

Growing up, cousins Nick and John’s family worked in the restaurant industry. It was John’s father who suggested they start a paper company. It seemed like a good option during the crashing economy of 2008 to start their own endeavor… so they did. 

With a small loan for inventory and a truck, these two paper pioneers set out to pave their own trail to success. 

“Businesses will grow with time and you have to learn,” Nick shares.  They have opposite approaches to business but their differences strike a balance. Nick heads up sales and John manages the inventory and warehouse. 

Are you a budding entrepreneur? Do you have a business idea but aren’t sure how to get started? Reach out. They’re happy to share their advice and hear yours.

And in the mean time, I motion to bring back Movie Monday. (9:22) It sounds like something fellow paper product salesman, Michael Scott, would have at Dunder Mifflin.

“Businesses will grow with time and you have to learn,” 

– Nick Kalogeromitros
