$750 Million Milestone....
Updated: Nov 23, 2022
Celebrating a $750 million milestone….
September 2021 was a very special month for us!
We have spent our entire career building amazing companies… with some absolutely amazing people.
Most have been handed off to others and some have changed names over the years, but we do try to keep track of the lifetime revenue of these companies and this month, we project that we have surpassed $750 million in lifetime sales and thousands of great jobs.
It’s never been about the money. It’s always been about building amazing teams and doing things that we never thought were possible. From never thinking that we could clean the windows on a 30 story building to building a rental marketplace when so many who had tried and failed before us.
Building any one of these have never been easy, but I have learned something from every single one of them, which helps me build the next one.
