Tom Nix’s “Nixland” is just as its title states, “My Wild Ride in the Inner City Check Cashing Industry.” I laughed out loud many times as I read Tom’s exploits in the “loan shark industry.” In polite society, we refer to it as (AFS) Alternative Financial Services. Payday loans, car title lending, check cashing…
Tom’s descriptions of growing up in San Pedro, his first days at USC and his altercation with Coach John McKay, his Los Angeles County Sheriff experiences, ramping-up his family’s check cashing business into a California powerhouse for serving the inner city by providing jobs and opportunity – all the while achieving PROFITS (an ugly word for many), leave no doubt that the time you “invest” in “Nixland” is a 100% ROI.
“Nixland” is a real world example of what a singular minded entrepreneur can accomplish in any vertical, albeit highly controversial. Not only will the reader find this book impossible to put down, but, you’ll be inspired, more business savvy, and optimistic regarding what can be accomplished through hard work and determination.
I’m proud to be a member of the AFS industry and I’m extremely glad I discovered ‘Nixland!”
