Business continues to boom in Houston, and entrepreneurs are leading the charge.
A recent survey of local startups showed more than half plan to hire full and part-time workers in the next six months.
“We have a 150 members in Entrepreneurs' Organization Houston Chapter, probably more than 50 percent, probably more like 80 or 90 percent are experiencing growth, they're hiring and its all they can do to keep up with the business they have,” says chapter president John Carter.
Carter himself is founder and president of Telmart, a telecommunications service in Houston.
Others like him are offering jobs in areas ranging from software, information technology, real estate to even eyelash extensions. All are earning at least $1 million in annual revenue.
“We have people who have started their own business with absolutely nothing and have grown to $10-12 million a year businesses, we have people who have bought businesses only to grow them and we have many, many serial entrepreneurs as well,” Carter tells KTRH News.
Carter says the jobs being offered would be great for recent college grads or even someone who may have been laid off, as long as they're willing to work.
