We asked Martin Simenc at Home Security Services to share with us his life story including people and experiences that have influenced his personal and business philosophies. We also asked him to answer some fun questions. Following are excerpts from that interview.
What was your childhood like?
I am the youngest of five children. My parents emigrated from Europe (Slovenia) following WWII and arrived here with nothing. They successfully raised and educated their children and provided a loving and supportive environment and modelled a caring, spiritual and courageous life. My parents had many friends that were older than they were and spent a lot of time corresponding with and supporting them as they aged. I learned to respect and value older persons and grew to find that I got a great sense of satisfaction by helping them. No doubt those experiences as a child influenced the development of our business.
