019 John Temerian | Building a brand, sticking to your DNA, and focusing on your passion in order to be fulfilled in your entrepreneurial endeavors
Today’s conversation is with John Temerian of Curated, a dealership in Miami specializing in vintage supercars. John’s journey started at his father’s Lamborghini service business where he grew from sweeping floors & cleaning cars to doing a clutch on a Testarossa at the age of 16. Eventually he would leave the proverbial nest to chase a lifestyle inspired by his father’s big clients who had the money, who had the cars, and who he thought had the life he wanted. He hosted parties, supercar events, and eventually ended up running a successful exotic car rental company, Lou LaVie, but something was missing. He just wasn’t fulfilled. And that’s when serendipity stepped in and he realized that everything he had learned at a young age from his father, how to evaluate a car, what’s correct about a vehicles history, was baked into his DNA and a valuable asset to collectors. Thus Curated was born. This is a great story about building a brand, sticking to your DNA, and focusing on exactly what you know as you run the entrepreneurial marathon.
