There were plenty of signs that Jon Kim’s financial situation was pretty dire. One of the more embarrassing ones was when he stood at the counter at a Hollywood In-N-Out Burger, handed the cashier two debit cards, along with two one-dollar bills, and still came up short paying for his Animal-Style cheeseburger, fries and Coke. A stranger standing behind Kim in the long line felt so bad for the then-21-year-old, that he offered to pay the difference.

RockHome Lessons Aims To Make Music Lessons Cool

Jon Kim, CEO and founder of Los Angeles-based RockHome Lessons, is really excited about the new boxes he is going to start using to ship materials to his customers.
“It’s going to look like a little guitar case,” Kim said, “You’ll open it up and you’ll have everything you need to rock.”
Shipping materials might seem a bit unimportant, but Kim sees every business decision he makes as a chance to enhance the RockHome brand. Right now Kim is working on getting the miniature-sized cardboard cases ready for his new customers. He will not move on to the next step until they are in the mail. That is how Kim has built his business one step at a time.
