Not wanting to expand outside of Houston and Austin, I began work as Small Business Consultant helping local businesses in the Austin & Houston Area, before being contracted by a large international company (160+ locations Worldwide) to be their "clean-up guy".
I was the guy that you didn't want to see... If I was at your store, it was because you were about to either go bankrupt, or about to lose your license to do business with the company (somtimes both). On EVERY SINGLE OCCASION, I was able to take the WORST performing stores and transform them into the number 1 stores in the company, with a lasting effect of about 3-6 months (raw sales). And... I did so within the first 2 weeks of being on location.
Since then, I've been offered equity in companies and partnerships worth literal millions of dollars ($3,000,000 being my highest offer, at age 26). However... My true passion isn't in running giant companies. My passion is helping others transform their businesses, and lives.
