Lou Lentine started with a $15,000 investment and made only $18,000 the first year in sales. That year they took no salaries and plowed all the money back into the business. Lou Lentine was committed to delaying gratification until the business was a success. With the help of a $100,000 SBA loan and determination such as when Lou brought a laptop on his honeymoon, success became a reality. "I always wanted to be a successful businessman," said Lentine. Through this SBA loan, Lou would go on to become a nominee for the SBA Young Entrepreneur award.
