When you are tens of thousands of dollars in debt you can give up, or choose to do what this entrepreneur did to turn his business around.
Host Mary McCarthy talks to Tommy Mello, an entrepreneur who went from $50,000 in debt seven years ago, on course to hit $39 million dollars in revenue this year. Tommy is the owner of A1 Garage Door Services, located in 11 states. His goal is to grow the business into the largest residential garage door company in North America.
“…focus on the one thing until you get it done that’s going to impact the business the most… don’t stop until you get it there, because so many entrepreneurs, we do 20 things at once, we throw everything up in the air, nothing gets done.” ~ Tommy Mello
