We had the good fortune of connecting with Brian Blackmore and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brian, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I think risks have played a vital role in my life. I truly believe in NO Risk NO reward. When it comes to taking risk I assess the risks very carefully. I believe anything worth having will involve some level of risk but I am 100% confident in my abilities so I always feel like I will come out on top.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
The name of my business is BK Credit Consultants LLC. It is a full service credit restoration company that assists clients in restoring their credit. We assist with the removal of inaccurate, outdated, and misleading information from credit profiles. We also assist with the rebuilding of credit using our proven blueprint. I started this company back in 2016. I wanted to help people achieve their dreams and leverage their credit in order to do so. I remember starting my business and a lot of people told me that there wasn’t any way that I could be successful in credit repair. They told me it was saturated and that there was a credit company on every corner. However, I knew it was only one Brian Blackmore and I knew I could be successful at whatever I put my mind to. I started promoting and the first challenge I encountered as people not believing like I did in my services. I remember having to literally beg people to do their credit so I could show them that I knew what I was doing. I just wanted the testimonials because once that happened I knew clients would come. So, I promoted via social media and began to see my business grow. I walked away from my corporate job October 2016. That is how quick my business took off. Once I was able to free up my time things got even better and I was able to take off like a rocket. Today, I have over 1600 clients and have one of the largest/most respected credit restoration companies out here. I have learned many lessons along the way and the most important one is that you can’t please everyone. No matter how good of a service you provide, there will be somebody that is not satisfied. Just take the criticism and continue to strive to be a better company today than you were yesterday. Also, NEVER chase the money. Perfect your craft and the money will come! There is no substitute for hard work and no matter how BIG you get never forget where you started! Be HUMBLE!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
This is a tough one for me because I am not on the scene very much. However, I love a good patio! I would definitely take them to my favorite spot which is Mi Cocina and introduce them to the Dilemma/Mambo Taxi! I would take them around Uptown because that is mostly where I hang out just eating and having drinks.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to thank my family for always being supportive in whatever I choose to do! I wake up everyday with new ideas and they are always there to encourage me. They never make me feel like my dreams are too big. They are 100% supportive of any and everything I could to put my time into.
