LAKEWOOD RANCH -- Two Lakewood Ranch teenagers found they couldn’t get jobs that fit around their school and their summer schedules.
So, they decided to start their own business; a high-end computer business.
Dominic Lentini and Tyler Wilkerson, both 17, have been friends since the third grade and like to hang out. But it’s not time wasted. The two are usually fixing and building computers, because they own their own business.
“We're very responsible, productive, ambitious,” said Wilkerson.
Their company is called Relentless PC. Started it in January, they already have clients. Through their website www.relentlesspc.com, customers can order high end gaming computers built primarily for gaming and graphic design that are built by Dominic and Tyler.
The computers range in price from $800 to $8,500. They also fix and upgrade older computers.
“We will normally have it built and ready to ship within three days. And we usually have it to the customer within 10 days or 7 business days,” said Lentini.
So while other teens are beaching and partying, the two are working long hours.
“Anywhere from 8 to 15 hours depending on what we need to do,” said Wilkerson.
So that they can do those “fun things” later in life.
The teens are ready to conquer the business world while completing their senior year of high school this fall at Lakewood Ranch High School.
In the future they would like open up a storefront where customers can come in and build customized computers right on site. And they plan on continuing their business when they go off to college.
