Fred "FJ" Sweet is a serial entrepreneur whose fundamental philosophy is to monetize his passions. He enjoys world traveling, which exposes him to other cultures and ways of doing things. This allows him to gain new experience and life lessons, that have served to propel him in his business and interpersonal endeavors.
His early childhood education began in Tallahassee at FAMU DRS and he later went on to graduate from James S. Rickard High. After high school he attended his top choice institutuion of higher education, Florida A&M University.
Initially he sought to pursue a degree in architecture, but found it too subjective and decided to study at FAMU-FSU College of engineering. After finishing in 2006 he went on to work with engineering firms in Tallahassee until the recession of 2008.
Introduction to entrepreneurship:
After working for a couple local engineering firms he became a contactor. After years of creating plans for projects that range from house foundations in Southwood to drainage and parking of FAMU DRS, he was discontent with receiving a few dollars per hour for projects that generated thousands. So, he decided to contact his services instead of working as an employee.
The need to Diversify:
Becoming a Civil Engineering contractor in 2008 and facing a national recession, he was forced to find a new field of work. After not receiving thousands in pay for several projects due to the clape of the housing market, he looked to create multiple streams of income so that he would not find himself in such a financial situation again. This was the genesis to the multitude of companies, businesses, and projects that he now oversees today.
