Check Out Antonio Higgs Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Antonio Higgs.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I have always had an entrepreneur mindset ever since I was a young kid. I also started my entrepreneur trend as a young boy. From selling candy to walking door-to-door in my neighborhood selling  from magazines.

As I grew older, my education was also surrounded around. I went on to achieve and accomplish getting my bachelor’s degree in business organizational management in 2010 from Hannibal Lagrange university.

I ran a kennel for some years and also had a hand in rental properties. I’m a people person and I enjoy bringing joy to others by helping them. So eventually came Smiley‘s courier and professional services. Smiley’s Courier and Professional Services whose motto is:

Where all business is a priority and impossible is nothing – simplified! Jack of all trades type business but mainly specialized but not limited to:

Moving Services- local and long-distance.
Cleaning services.
Junk removal services.
Freight overflow/package deliveries.

I named my business after the nickname that I gained from my peers during my childhood in school. “Smiley”
I have a smile on my face the majority of the day every day; so I can literally say I provide service with a smile

I love being a small business LLC because it helps me to be able to cater to my customers in ways that the bigger corporations won’t/cannot.

I’m a hard worker and very dedicated to what I do. Everything I put my hands on receives 120% effort and nothing less. I enjoy working for myself as it’s very convenient for my little family.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
I would say starting out was not exactly a smooth road. I got started around November 2019.

As we all know Covid became a big thing just shortly thereafter in February of 2020. I believe in God and I fully believe he has guided me since I started this journey; so even during the rough periods, I survived.

No major struggles, but I am trying to get my name out there more. The city is big and I’m just a team player amongst the other individuals that do the same similar things as I do.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
What sets me apart from others, I would have to say my personality. We are all different and unique in our own ways and with that being said, my answer is far from conceited.

I’m a positive, motivational strong energy good vibes type of guy who greets the world with a smile daily.

I’m currently most proud of the fact that I’m still successfully running my business despite all the things that have come along since such as Covid and the high rise in gas prices.

Can you talk to us about how you think about risk?
I believe anyone that sets their mind to being an entrepreneur is automatically a risk itself. You are stepping into a world of unknowns and what if’s

But to be successful in this world, especially as an entrepreneur, you can’t let the unknowns and what-ifs hold you back from your dream. So you simply have faith and “jump” jump with confidence and faith!

Everything is a risk, no matter what we decide to do in this life. So why not take a risk to achieve and accomplish your own dreams?!
