In his spare time, Carter loves reading books on ancient history (for example, the Mongol Empire, the Roman Empire, and Ancient Greece). He also enjoys learning more about World War I, and has listened to a LOT of podcasts on general history over the years. It was actually podcasts that led him to his favourite (and most intense) hobby…Jody, his dad, recommended a podcast called “Chat with Traders,” a show that interviews experts on the stock market. Carter is now in his fourth year of self-taught investment strategy, taking time every day to study the current status of the stock market and anticipate and respond accordingly.
Working at Chervin has really had an impact on Carter. In addition to the great connections and friendships he has developed over the last 2 years, he also says the role has “ruined [him] for bad furniture!” Despite the cost effectiveness of some low-end brands, Carter says being surrounded by beautiful, durable, well-designed furniture for years means he’ll likely be buying nice furniture, if not much of it, when he moves into his own home someday. He will also be seeking out a home with wide doorways and hallways – no one knows the value of spacious passageways like a furniture delivery guy!
But of course, he’s always up to the challenge…want to meet Carter yourself? Come on in and visit the showroom in Elmira, or call in your order and he just may be the one to show up at your door with a special delivery of Chervin furniture!
