We had the good fortune of connecting with Thaini Rolle and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Thaini, how do you think about risk?
I’m definitely a calculated risk taker. My view on risk as it pertains to business is this… The way I see it is I had two options: Continue working every day trying to make ends meet or give my business a fair shot and succeed. the alternative was that the business would fail and I’ll end up going back to depending on a job to make ends meet, so what do I have t lose. To me, the risk lied in NOT following my dreams. I would’ve risked my financial security, the ability to do what I love, and a life of regret. Entrepreneurship has taught me that there are no failures, only obstacles and my job is to figure out how to beat those obstacles every day. Taking risks is what got me here and it is what will keep me advancing to new levels in my business for years to come. There is no reward without risk.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am the owner and founder of Integrity Credit Repair. My company specializes in providing credit coaching and improvement and student loan services to individuals who may have specific goals or who just want to improve their financial situation altogether. I am a lover of all things credit. You can often find me studying the topic via blogs, videos, books, courses… you name it. I am most proud of the impact that I have had on so many people from repairing credit to providing information in my free Facebook group. I recently learned to create digital products and have produced every credit improvement e-books and courses that are available on my website. I get excited when clients are able to achieve their goals after having a credit review/consultation with me or completing my credit improvement program. It has not been easy, but it has definitely been worth it. Starting out was tough as business grew a lot faster than I anticipated. I had to invest in systems and develop processes to get organized. I’ve learned many lessons on this journey; the most important being that I can not to this on my own. I have learned the importance of developing a team, having systems and processes and most importantly to ALWAYS provide excellent customer service. Hiring the right team has been and is an ongoing challenge, but I am committed to filling whatever roles I need to until I have the perfect crew.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Oh that’s easy. I would definitely take my friend to Wynwood to see the beautiful art on the walls and to enjoy the delicious foods. We would then shoot on over to Bayside Marketplace to take a boat tour of celebrity homes, ride the ferris wheel and do a little jet skiing. Of course, we would have to hit up south beach. Walking up and down the strip enjoying the shops and restaurants is a must. After we eat at Big Pink or Yardbird, we would probably hit up a few museums (yea… I’m a nerd). I would definitely take them to visit the World Erotic Art Museum (make sure my kids don’t see this lol) because its such a rarity, and do a little club hopping on the beach. Day 2 would probably consist of lunch and a comedy show at the Improv at CityPlace Doral, a stop at ACEE’S Icees for the best lemon treat and a visit to Vizcaya museum for a walk around the beautiful gardens. Im a sucker for a good time outdoors.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my children. They are the motivating force behind everything I do. There would be not Integrity Credit Repair without them. They inspired me to improve my credit to provide a better life for them and they continue to influence my business progress on a daily basis. I love them with everything in me and I hope I am making them proud.
