Simply put, I’ve been through a lot and I survived. As a child I was exposed to drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence, and homelessness. In adulthood, I navigated the fallout of my challenged upbringing and experienced devastating lows. Along the way, I figured some things out and I have learned how to create a life I am proud of, and to serve my clients in a way that no one else can.
Those struggles and experiences taught me to appreciate what I have, helped me design my dream life that I am currently living, and taught me I could get through anything.
Like many others who end up starting construction businesses, I grew up in the construction industry— literally and figuratively. My dad was a contractor when I was growing up, so I came by it naturally. I worked for other people and then one day I broke off on my own. That’s about 18 years in business and 30 years in construction. When my business started taking off, the recession happened— I was hit with every possible curveball life could have thrown at me— in fact I lost everything a couple times over-- divorce, bankruptcy, you name it.
The important part of the story is that I made it through and I have since grown my business and my personal life to reflect my core values of Accountability, Professionalism, Workmanship, and Integrity.
Today, I have a very healthy and lucrative construction business. I don’t advertise, I don’t seek clients, and in fact, regardless of this very competitive market, everyone who comes to me now has found me and chosen me because of word-of-mouth recommendations.
Best of all, I have time and energy for my wife, my kids, and my hobbies at the end of the day. I am able to vacation and not worry about my business. I am building wealth and financial security, and we are building our legacy. I am able to give to those who are less fortunate, and I am creating something that most people never even imagine.
In addition to running my business, I have time to coach others in the construction world and teach them how to have the same freedoms and energy I do, because I feel that everyone deserves the chance to live their dreams.
