We had the good fortune of connecting with Larry D West III and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Larry D, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
There were, and still remain, three core thoughts behind starting my business. The first is legacy. While I don’t have a hard set expectation for my kids to take over my business, I want them to have the option. That is the option to take over and run it, the option to remain an investor, the option to sell it. The second is personal happiness. At my core, I know that I would never be achieve happiness or satisfaction unless I took complete ownership over my career. Last, because it’s a dynamic challenge. Starting a business is not a vertical path. It’s a woven tapestry of challenges. Those challenges keep me fresh and motivated.No day is ever dull.

What should our readers know about your business?
My company, Precision Business Strategies, is a nationally renowned business strategy and consulting firm. Our area of expertise and service delivery includes: accounting & finance, business strategy, business valuation, and tax.

Two things that set us apart from the competition: First, is our proprietary framework 3nsight™ . It is a unique process that we use to drive business success. 3nsight™ brings strategic insight and flawless execution to help our clients track their resources (accounting), keep more of what they earn (tax planning), and protect their legacy (asset protection).

Getting to where I am today was not an easy path. It has been littered with challenges. I’ve been fortunate to overcome every challenge thrown my way by simply not giving up. Every challenge presents two options: fold or fight. I consistently choose the latter.

The lesson that I’ve learned along the way is also a phrase that I live by- Be Bold, Be Elite, Be You

BE BOLD in your pursuit of happiness. Make sure the career you have is the life you want.

BE ELITE in all that you do. Have no fear and accept no excuses. Get sh*t done and be the best at it.

BE YOU…. unapologetically. In a world full of filters and impersonators — dare to be different and be you. The world deserves the best possible version of you!

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.
Wow, this one is a challenge. I definitely need to get out more.

We’d spend time in Grandscape, Deep Ellum, and downtown Dallas. I have a strong affinity for all things Space and Dinosaurs so spending time at the Perot Museum is a must.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
This is a great question. There are several people that have played a significant role in my story. Perhaps none more significant than my family whom have given me unwavering support. If I’m the super hero in my story, my family serves as the guide that motivates, encourages, supports, and holds me accountable to live up to my potential and execute at a high level.
