We had the good fortune of connecting with Sedetric Chambliss and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sedetric, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
As a native of a small rural town named Hamburg, Mississippi, my family taught me many skills on how to survive and do things for myself. Also, with living so many miles from the city limits, there were no typical teenage jobs available. Therefore, I found pay working with my uncle who was a contractor, working with a family friend on his farm and logging business, and lastly working with my father at his car dealership. So the skills I needed for my business I already had. However, TV mounting wasn’t something I thought about. It really started when I moved to Dallas, Tx and mounted my own TV. People would ask, “who mounted your TV?” and I would tell them that I did it myself. They would ask if I could mount theirs and of course I would do it. I mounted a TV for a friend of mine who stated “Man you’re good at this” and asked me have I ever considered doing is as a business. That’s when it became an idea. After that, I had great conversation with my father about the pursuit of TV mounting as a business. That conversation gave me insight into how I wanted to take this project on. I ultimately decided to pursue TV mounting as a business. That’s were my journey began and here we are today.

I got where I am today by trusting in God himself, the support of my loves one, paying attention to detail, taking risk, making unpopular decisions, and learning from others.
No it wasn’t easy and there have been many obstacles that I’ve faced. But learning from life lessons, I’ve learned to understand that anything worth having is worth fighting for. When times get rough dig deeper, trust the process, and push that much harder. With prayer and the right support system behind me, I’ll will always be able exceed expectations.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my friend was in town, I would take them to Deep Ellum, Trinity Grove Area, Bishop Arts District for good eatery, music, and scenery. I would also take them Cedar Ridge Reserve and White Rock Lake for a good exercise and time of relaxation.

First and foremost, I would like to give glory God. Without him, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I would also like to thank my lady, my family, my close circle of friends, and lastly, Kingdom Men. These people in my life have supported, motivated, and pushed to me to be best the version of myself. I thank all of them for the roles they have played in my life and continued success.
