Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Laurent Baud, Partner at AMPM Group, located in New York, NY, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

AMPM Group is a luxury travel and lifestyle company that takes experiences to the next level. We execute the best experiences for our clients, from a weekend in Saint Barths to planning a year-long trip around the world.

Tell us about yourself

I was first introduced to the luxury market in the high-end world of luxury fashion. From there, I transitioned my career into hospitality because I loved working with new people every day and creating memorable experiences for them. After years of working with the top hospitality companies around, it was time to start something new and different, something that was hyper-focused on experiences and luxury markets, that is when AMPM Group was born in 2016 with my partner Mark Bau. We both wanted to deliver the best experiences for our guests, 365 days a year and beyond.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

As a business owner, my biggest accomplishment is being able to share the satisfaction of creating incredible experiences for our guests and the reward from their appreciation.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Growing a business is never going to be easy, and the hardest things are always remembering to never give up when things get tough, always moving forward with a smile, and remembering that every problem has a solution; you just need to think differently.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Love what you do because this will consume your life 24/7 and 365 days a year. You are birthing a business, and you can’t just quit on it when things get difficult.

Where can people find you and your business?
