Inspiring Conversations with Markiem Jenkins of MMM TV Mounting & Entertainment

Today we’d like to introduce you to Markiem Jenkins.

Hi Markiem, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I attended Pennsylvania State University where I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice. I initially wanted to be a state Parole Officer. I took the exam several times & never received a phone call. I found myself working numerous of jobs where my degree had no impact on my base pay. Fast forward 2-3 years later, I was a correctional officer working overnights. I remember sitting at my post and a light bulb just went off in my head. I could use the skills I learned in High School to start my own business. I didn’t know how to properly put it all together but at that moment, I knew I could make money for myself. I remember my friend asking me if I could mount her tvs in her new apartment. I told her I would gladly do it. I went over, mounted her tvs and she posted them on Instagram. She had let me know that people were asking her who mounted her tvs. She gave them my information and I eventually mounted their tvs. From there, that customer passed on my information and the rest is history. I never expected my business to take off the way it did. For a while, I started to really see that I was good at this and wanted to make it a business. I continued to practice the craft daily and eventually mastered it. I have been self-employed for two years now and I believe it’s the best decision I’ve made for myself.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Lol, not at all! I know a lot of people see Tv mounting as a simple thing. How hard is it to put a tv on the wall, right? Well, it’s not as easy as it looks. I had to train myself to mount on brick walls cement wall, and in Philadelphia they have older homes so some have lath and plaster walls which are a headache to mount on. Some walls have wood studs in them and others have metal. Some studs are 16 inches apart and in some homes, you’ll find them spaced out as far as 24 inches apart. So through a lot of trial and error, I learned how to maneuver while mounting on different types of walls.

Some of the struggles starting out were honestly was building my confidence to really do this. When I first started, I actually broke a tv and it killed my confidence. I replaced the tv the very next day and the customer asked me if I was ok to remount it. I said yes but I really wanted to say no because I didn’t believe in myself and I honestly didn’t have the money to buy another tv. But this time around, I took my time, found the studs, added a little more support with an anchor and we were good to go. That job killed my confidence and then boosted it through the roof. The customer was more so shocked that I came back the next day with a new tv. So I would say just having confidence and being knowledgeable were some of my early struggles.

We’ve been impressed with MMM TV Mounting & Entertainment LLC, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
MMM stands for Markiem (myself), Madison & Makenzie (my twin daughters). I wanted the name to really mean something to me. My daughters are my motivation and I make them my business partners on everything I do. I formed the business in 2020 and have grown to hit 100k last year in gross sales. At MMM, we provide our customers with the best Tv mounting experience around. We specialize in Tv mounting but we do a lot more such as electric fireplaces installs, security cameras, and small home electrical jobs. We can mount a tv anywhere for our customers. We have mounted tvs in bathrooms, on bedroom ceilings and even on outside decks. Whatever our customers ask for we do our best to deliver.

What sets MMM apart from others is that I run my business as an actual business. I like anyone that works for me to have a company shirt or hoodie. As I mentioned, I love to provide the best customer service around.

What I’m most proud about is the amount of customers we have been able to help. We have been able to service over 600 customers and I would like to see how many we can this year. It’s really a blessing for others to want you in their home to do work.

I want all of the readers to know that MMM Tv Mounting is here for all your tv mounting needs. We will always make sure your satisfied and happy with your services from start to finish.
