Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Syed Ahmed, Founder of They Love Abe LLC., located in Pearland, TX, USA.

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

I have three separate products, all of which are in pending patent stages; the first is called the TLA, which is a beverage holder that also is a wallet! The world's first patent pending beverage cooling wallet is the perfect accessory to take to the pool or beach. Finally, a wallet can also hold your beverages. The neoprene beverage concealer will keep your drinks hot/cold for hours. The wallet is ideal for holding your credit cards/I.D. The removable pouch is perfect for holding your cash and is sealed shut, so you do not have to worry about your money being wet. The bottom zipper pouch is ideal for holding change and an air tag, so you never lose your wallet again. Made in the USA. Orders over 500 can be customized by adding a company logo. Processing till after payment for orders under 500 is 3-5 days in the USA. Orders over 500 with the addition of a logo will take up to 30 days to create. The beverage-cooling wallet comes in either black or pink. With orders over 500 can be customized to any color.

Tell us about yourself

This is all part of the bigger plan; this is just baby steps towards the future. In the wise words of Jay Z, "I can't help the poor if I am one of them; I have to get rich and give back. To me, that's a win-win!" That's my plan, build these companies to fund my political campaign to become a world leader in helping change the world in a positive and impactful way. I am simply built differently, a real-life one in a million that's going to show the world how the struggle makes magic!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Working with manufacturers in China to build prototypes and bulk orders, built websites, and created patents from scratch.. 100% all me!

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

Relentless commitment, long nights, and the never-ending grind to be successful.

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

  1. You can learn to do anything on the internet.
  2. Never give up.
  3. Find a way.
