We had the good fortune of connecting with Bernard C. Akomas and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Bernard C., how do you think about risk?
I believe in order to get ahead in a capitalist society, one should learn how to take calculated risks. I do not believe in luck! However, I do believe in being prepared for great opportunities as they arise in business and life. The keys for success that have continually worked for me in both aspects of my life are God, patience, persistence, taking calculated risk, and maintaining a positive attitude.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would either go to the Arlington Highlands in Arlington, TX or Bishop Arts District in Dallas, TX. Both areas are filled with restaurants and local activities for all age groups to enjoy. 1. Gloria’s 2. D&B or Main Event 3. Cinemark Movie

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My mother has played a huge role in my success. She always saw greatness in me even when I did not see it in myself. She is honestly my hero and one of my biggest supporters. She planted the seed within me to work hard and own my own businesses and I am forever grateful. At the age of 27, I began to read, study and execute my abilities which later gave me the courage to start my own business. I guess you can say, I began to water the seed my mother planted, developed a plan and stuck to it…Now three years later, I am here and flourishing.
