But it wasn’t always like that…
As a young kid growing up, I remember seeing my parents working extremely hard. My dad was a solopreneur
working out of our home, he was operating a pest control business.
I remember licking envelopes, helping my dad as a kid, sending out invoices or checks to pay the bills. My dad often talked to me about the importance of earning a good degree in college and working hard so that one day...
“YOU WILL EVENTUALLY BE ABLE TO RETIRE”
My dad was the hardest working person I knew but eventually he decided to sell his business and he went
back to school and had to retrain how to be a sales professional (he became an agricultural consultant) to
support the family.
My dad never really hired anybody, so he did all the hard work, and as a result he was never really able to grow and scale.
