Eric Camehl was born and raised in the United States and has lived in both Texas and Michigan before joining the United States Army. When Eric was in the Army, he was focused not just on his responsibilities that come with that, but also on developing a business back home while stationed in Afghanistan. “My best achievement has been purchasing a business that I knew nothing about while deployed to Afghanistan. Being able to prosper, expand, grow, and sell it allowed me to go on to the next adventure,” Camehl adds. He realized he was intended to be an entrepreneur from that point on. The only issue now is what field is he most passionate about.
For Eric, the entrepreneurial world is clearly nothing new. He presently owns many businesses, including a real estate brokerage firm, a title firm, a commercial painting company, and is about to launch his newest endeavor, an online CBD company. Even though he hasn’t decided exactly what he wants to accomplish, Camehl intends to spread his business knowledge across the board as much as possible and develop as many things as he can during his career.
“For the young entrepreneur I would recommend doing something you enjoy right out of the gate and try to work in that vertical to learn it before you start and or take over a business. If you want to own a car wash, go work at one first to really understand it. Only hang out with positive like-minded people, read lots of books, hit the gym at least four times a week and eat healthy. You need to be performing at peak levels and you can’t do that if you don’t take care of your mind and body,” says Camehl.
He has experienced what it is like to build from nothing firsthand, not to mention it was while in a different country. Camehl emphasizes how important it is to go after the things you want, as that is what has brought him great success thus far. He intends to keep that as one of his core principles as he moves ahead with future ventures. Be sure to keep your eye peeled for the next project from Eric Camehl, if it’s anything like his first couple then we are in for a treat.
