In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark talks with the founder of 1-800-GOT-JUNK, Brian Scudamore; O2EBrands.com
Brian talks with us about how he got started in a pick-up truck picking up junk to pay his way through college to owning several successful businesses and is on his way to making a billion in revenue! It took him 8 years to make that first million, but now he does that in ONE day.
What does it take to get to that level?
Stick-With-It-Ness! Do not give up. To build a great company you have to go through:
- The ups and downs
- Making mistakes
- Learning process
- Tweaking the model and making it better!
You also need to build a great team. Find the right people, train them right and treat them right! Brian gives his team 5 weeks off a year.
When building a great company with great people you need to have them live great lives.
Brian also shares with us how his second business almost failed because he had reached a level of arrogance in thinking that he had it all figured out. Each company is different and what worked for the first one may not work for the next one. He took that lesson learned into his 3rd and 4th company and they are now successful because of it.
Listen in to see if you have what it takes to run a successful business.
