WHO & WHY of the Impact Laser Tag
As a veteran speaker, business coach and trainer with over 20 years of building effective teams all over the world since 1993, Jenya Semenov helps business owners, entrepreneurs and HR professionals improve teamwork skills, build strong organizations and reduce turnover. Impact Mobile Laser Tag is a fusion of Jenya’s business development expertise and his love of family.
Jenya and his wife Karly have three children. Karly is a freelance writer of educational materials (and moonlights as Jenya’s editor.) As members of their local Oak Hills Church, the Semenovs believe they are “called to be Jesus in every neighborhood in their city and beyond.” Although they are yet to find a story about Laser Tag in the Bible, they do believe in building relationships and community.
Jenya had a dream of a father having a great time playing “war” with his kids and his wife. The dream was so real it made Jenya curious about the relationship statistics involving fathers in America. He found that more than 50% of American children do not live with their biological fathers. From his professional side, he already knew that the #1 cause of turnover in business is due to subpar leadership! Those two statistics, Jenya believed, were directly connected, and he wanted to make an impact on these trends.
Jenya saw how his and neighborhood kids loved playing Nerf gun battles, especially when dads would get involved. One summer the family went camping in Colorado’s Jelly Stone Park where Jenya and the kids got to play laser tag on the side of the mountain. Everyone loved it, and a seed was planted in the Semenovs’ minds.
Back home again in Texas, Jenya organized some birthday parties and a neighborhood event using Nerf guns and featuring some of the game modes offered in our packages today. The parties were such a success, bringing ought the fun and competitive spirit in all the participants. Jenya began researching types of war-game mediums, and, remembering the family’s laser tag experience in Colorado, decided to read up more on laser tag. After substantial research, he and Karly decided to pursue their own laser tag business, and established Impact Mobile Laser Tag in the spring of 2017.
