The owner of Something Special, LLC and advisor For Veterans for America First sat down to discuss his life, his career, and his professional philosophy
CALDWELL, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / May 9, 2022 / It is with great enthusiasm that retired police detective and successful retail business owner Stan Fitzgerald announces that he is the subject of a new interview. The interview, which was conducted by freelance journalist Stefan Junge on behalf of an online periodical aimed at businesspeople and entrepreneurs, was published on May 2, 2022.
Early in the piece, Stan Fitzgerald is asked where the idea for Something Special, LLC originated. "I come from a background in the entertainment industry. Specifically, I have a lot of experience selling physical products that come from the entertainment industry, which makes a lot of sense, considering the business we've been operating for the past fifteen years. We make, produce, and distribute DVDs, Blu Rays, and so on," he replies, elaborating," Although it seems like it's a dying medium in retail stores, the demand has actually increased in recent years thanks to internet sales. Business is going strong and hasn't slowed down-and it all came from working at a video store as a child."
Further along in the interview, Stan offers a recommendation for a general business strategy that might serve any entrepreneur well and contribute to their success, stating, "Don't be afraid to make investments for the betterment of your business. Not all of them are going to succeed, but you have to take the jump and spend some money. As the old saying goes, it takes money to make money. If you're starting out as a new entrepreneur, it's a little different, but if you're on a roll and your bottom line is healthy, you have to try different avenues of inventory, marketing, and so on and so forth. You have to sink some money into the business."

About Stan Fitzgerald of Caldwell, New Jersey:
Hailing from Caldwell, New Jersey, Stan Fitzgerald spent the first part of his career as a police detective. During the course of his thirteen years at the Essex County Sheriff's Department in Newark, New Jersey, Stan Fitzgerald participated in multiple special task forces relating to narcotics investigations. He also made hundreds of arrests, executed dozens of search warrants, and liaised with the prosecutor's office to obtain agreeable verdicts. As his accomplishments mounted, Stan's many years of noteworthy service earned him several official commendations for valor. Eventually, he was promoted to the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) task force.
After suffering injuries stemming from a car crash that prevented his further service in law enforcement, Stan retired from the Essex County Sheriff's Department on a disability pension. In response to this lamentable development, he resolved to find success in a new career, and rebounded by starting a retail business along with his wife, Donna. The couple formed Something Special, LLC, in 1999, a company based out of Georgia that operates in the liquidation industry. After finding success in the private sector, Stan and Donna decided to lend their efforts to a few civically-minded organizations, taking on prominent roles with Veterans For America First, a grassroots organization that aims to protect the civil liberties of combat veterans. They both also work on the advisory board for BlakPAC, and Stan serves on the board for a closely affiliated organization called Christian Patriots United.
