About the Author

As a newly single father of two from MI, he struggled to start over as a paint contractor in FL, going door to door. His situation was so bad, even the IRS had mercy on him. Thanks to books, and seminars, and winning the wife lottery, he not only cracks the success code and overcomes the struggle, but also streamlines the business in less than 3 years, published a how to book, then sold the company,  and now coaches other businesses like you to do the same.
