North Carolina Client: Miguel Avila
Miguel Avila, his daughter Esmeralda, and his sons Miguel Jr. and Giovanni, are the owners of Daily View Pools, LLC. It is a family-operated business that offers in-ground swimming pool construction and renovation services in North and South Carolina. Aiming to build outdoor spaces that inspire time together, the Avila family established their business in 2016 to give their Mexican-American family an opportunity to be self-sufficient and grow professionally.
In 2018, Miguel met Jose Alvarez, Prospera North Carolina Vice President, during a networking event. Back then, Miguel used to frequently attend this type of events, yet he recalls Jose as the first Latino he saw and connected with at a business networking function. Subsequently, Jose invited Miguel to a Prospera business seminar and his relationship with Prospera has grown ever since.
“Prospera gives excellent business counseling and provides a unique cultural perspective to Latinos.” – Miguel Avila
Over the past few years, Prospera has assisted Miguel with business consulting and guidance to set long-term planning goals, access capital, and obtain a minority-owned business certification. Based on his personal experience working closely with the organization, Miguel affirms that Prospera has an ability to relate and understand the issues and challenges that Latino entrepreneurs face.
Moreover, the Avila family continues working with Prospera for Daily View Pools to continue to grow and prosper. They have adopted modern technology to improve business operations, developed a pool estimate calculator using java to reduce appraising time from one week to 10 minutes, and implemented the practice to assign an exclusive team per project. They are doing 95% of the work in-house to reduce the need to sub-contract. With these effective practices in place and eager to keep improving and streamlining their procedures, the Avilas wish to one day make the process of buying an in-ground swimming pool as simple as buying a car online.
