Today we’d like to introduce you to Felipe Freitas.
Hi Felipe, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
From Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, I moved to the US 6 years ago with my mom and a bag full of dreams. It’s been a wonderful journey filled with challenges and growth and I couldn’t be more thankful for it. My first week here I already started working – something I’ve never done in my 18 years in Brazil, where I would spend my days by the ocean and collecting sunsets and memories. Shortly after my first job I was introduced to the world of home renovation and started to develop a much stronger work ethic. Wake up early and work until the sun goes down was a new thing in my life and something I still do. It didn’t take me that long until I fell in love with the craft, and every day I would strive to be a little bit better and learn something new – YouTube was my biggest ally at the time and I would watch DIY videos constantly until I feel in love with woodworking and decided to quit my job and work on my own. It was very challenging and brought me a ton of learning of which I’m very grateful for till this day, and carved a path that later on would lead to becoming my home renovation company Flow Renovations.
With Flow we now remodel homes from A – Z, specializing in Bathrooms and Kitchens for commercial and residential applications. I still have a lot to learn since I have really big dreams, but with hard work and consistency, there’s no limit to what could be accomplished.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Every journey is defined mainly by its challenges. There’s no hero that doesn’t struggle, that would be a very boring hero. Our challenges are not only the ones that are imposed unto us by life but the quality of the ones we pick.
Being in a foreign country speaking a new language, starting a business from zero with no experience and building discipline are some of my main challenges, and every day some amount of work has to be done in order to overcome them.
Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
