Party Time: Entrepreneurs turn barhopping into an online business
By Sam Boykin College dropout Scott Valentine was working at a Charlotte bank in a job he hated. He was in his early 20s, held a deep fondness for partying and alcoholic beverages, and didn’t much care for sitting in a cubicle all day. “I had been there about three years when I just hit the wall,” said Valentine. “I said, ‘That’s it, I’m quitting and starting my own business. I don’t know what it is, but that’s what I’m going to do.’ ” Sounds like a surefire recipe for spending the next few years in the parents’ basement, right? Think again. Ten years ago, Valentine, with two partners, launched Lazyday.com, a Charlotte company whose annual revenue has topped a quarter-million dollars. Moreover, the company allows Valentine to indulge in his love of having a good time.
