What exactly is a start-up? What defining factors differentiate a “Start-up” from an “Entrepreneur”? Does a start-up become an entrepreneurial endeavor the moment it finds a stable plateau in the red? Does an entrepreneurial endeavor then regress to a start-up, should they find themselves back in black?
Wiktionary defines a start-up as: “The act or process of starting a process or machine; a new business venture or organization.”
So then, the definitions are essentially: A) the act of making a thing which was inanimate, animated; or to put it more poetically, the act of making a thing which was essentially lifeless, come to life and operate with a flawless efficacy, so determined in it’s purpose that it may be called “A Machine”; or B) The New Guy.
We at Orange County Real Tours personally find the former considerably more flattering than the latter. It speaks to purpose. The desire to begin a thing, to watch it perform flawlessly, it’s only purpose to provide to you the exact service which you required of it. No games. No bells. No whistles. Simple efficacy; that and that alone.
There is a romanticized vision of start-ups these days. A vision of long months of ramen noodles; of blood and sweat and tears. A vision of lots of hard work that will, hopefully, only need to be performed for a certain amount of time before the profits just come rolling in.
This is not our vision. Our vision is to build the machine. A machine which operates effectively, every single time. A machine which produces quality imaging for your business, without fail. A machine which prides itself on it’s workmanship, and not it’s ability to pull customers in with gimmicks and sales-pricing, only to provide to them sub-par service.
We at Orange County Real Tours pride ourselves on the level of professionalism and the quality of imaging you will receive when choosing our service over the competitions, and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it will take but one opportunity to prove to you, the valued customer, that we are not just some “Start-up”, seeking your patronage in a desperate bid to get the money and get out; rather, that we are “Entrepreneurs-in-the-making”, and that we have every intention of providing the level of service and professionalism required to be such, for many years to come.
