We had the good fortune of connecting with Howard Palacin and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Howard, how do you think about risk?
There is risk in every decision that we made specially in business, the way you handle risk it would depend on whether you succeed or fail. Once you open a business to stay afloat you must take risks financially and mentally and it’s about how you manage it, how well you can prepare for it and how to minimize it. Let me give you an example: when we decided to open our business it took us months doing market research, finding the need for our service, researching our territory and our competitors, just to take an educated decision and mitigate most of the risk that we could think of.
Nevertheless, I think by taking the risk of starting a business is what help us be resilient and stronger.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I know that what makes me feel most proud of what we are doing is that we are lighting back that spark into the imagination of the children, we let them soar their minds to new heights. Our secret formula, is just pure passion in what we do, we put our hearts in everything that we do as if was for our own children, by teaching them in physics and mechanics in a really fun way! What better way to learn science that while having fun? Along the way we are learning that it is so rewarding to prepare the new generation to challenge themselves, that it’s ok to ask questions and to explore.
Was it easy? No, by any means no. Rewarding, challenging hard work, yes! You better believe it!

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.
Best place to hang out and to have a good time would be Dania Point the Brazilian rodizio, its is to die for! since I am a meat lover and a family man , Calle 8 the Puerto Rican restaurant Mofongo, a walk by the beach at Hollywood beach. Peanut island in West Palm beach great for a whole day at the beach and if we talking about taking out to eat someone that is not from here I would take that person to eat some cuban food In La Carreta
