It’s quite rare in this day and age to meet a businessman and think “wow, what a humble, loving individual”. Greed and the unquenchable lust for power has taken over our society, staining the quality and efficiency and the production these companies provide. “Burch Creative Capitol” is founded and ran on its own set of standards, and its own way of life. Love and humility, creativity and helping people get to where they need to be; those are the priorities Chris Burch promotes throughout his company.
Chris Burch has a selfless vision for not only his company, but the way he lives his life; to “create a road or path of success for others”. At the young and innocent age of thirteen, Burch’s father put him to work in construction. Burch was thankful for his father allowing him the opportunity to develop an outstanding work ethic at such a young age, as well as an excellent understanding of money, how it works, and most importantly how to make it. By the time Burch got to college, he had the spirit of an entrepreneur and was constantly putting this to practice. He would go door to door on campus selling sweatshirts, he would sell hot dogs at football games, any business opportunity Burch could come up with in his head he put to practice and saw what could come of it.
In addition to growing up with a very efficient understanding of money, Burch had also dealt with a learning disability. Rather than focusing on what his disability stopped him from doing, however, Burch directed his focus and energy on how he could use it to his advantage. Ultimately, he states that his learning disability had humbled him, and given him his ability to create.. which is something we can all be thankful for!
“Burch Creative Capitol” is very particular with exactly where they direct their energy and their focus. Surprisingly, their focus is not on the initial investments or how excellent the investments had proven to be, but it was directed towards helping; how they could help, when they could help, who they could help, etc. This was critical to the company. At “Burch Creative Capitol”, they are constantly paying attention to whether or not they are meeting their standards, which are to be reasonable in price, chic in design, and offer great value. This is a company that genuinely wants people to smile; they want to find a place where time stops.
Christopher Burch (http://christopherburch.com/) believes creativity comes out of our childhood. He states that every creation he has thought up had originated from a dream. At “Burch Creative Capitol”, they don’t embrace change; they demand it.
