Business and The Badge was started by two friends combining two passions: helping others and entrepreneurship. By connecting an aspiring entrepreneur with the same day job as someone else who is successful in business, Peter and Jared knew they can inspire and help those who want to add value to people’s lives while saving others.
Peter and Jared work for a large fire department in Southern California. As young Firefighter/Paramedic partners, they worked hard to add value to their community by helping those in need. Between calls, they dreamt of starting a business on the side that would add value to those outside of their community. Fast-forward 10 years there are promotions, marriages, children, college degrees, triumph, tragedy, successes and failures, but the two passions for wearing the badge and business remain.
If you are like us, you love your day job. Helping others while wearing the badge is one of the most rewarding careers someone can ever have. If you are like us, you also aspire for more. Providing value as an entrepreneur inspires and motivates you like no other, yet sometimes can seem out of reach. However, there are thousands of people just like us who have done it! Businessmen and women that have built something they love while doing the job they love! It is possible, and we aim to bridge that gap. We want to connect the aspiring to the accomplished, share ideas and stories, and motivate and help.
So come on in and enjoy yourself, and feel free to reach out to us!
