A businessman, David Moody Jr, who started a C.D. Moody Construction Company from his bedroom after losing a job and going broke has grown the business to be worth billions of dollars in Atlanta.
Face2faceAfrica reports that the journey began for Moody when he graduated from the Morehouse College and subsequently, Howard University.
The interest for construction was birthed when he was assigned to a construction site on a project.
Moody decided to start life afresh. He ventured into construction, decided to get married and settle down. That was not to be as Moody lost the new job when the company went bankrupt.
Since the interest in construction was still there, Moody and his wife decided to start a company themselves.
It started well, but they could not sustain the growth for long as they ended up losing every investment.
They were compelled to begin C.D. Moody Construction Company again using their bedroom as an office.
Fast-forward, C.D. Moody Construction Company is now worth billions of dollars engaging in big-time renovations and construction projects and winning several awards in the process.
The construction company has now been recognized in Atlanta as one of the top 25 commercial construction companies.
The venture which started from nothing to become something has also given back to society through scholarships to students and financial aids to entrepreneurs. Hundreds of people have benefited heavily from this.
