Mark Stoner – Episode 156 – Blue Collar Gold
Few businesses in our industry have over 20 trucks on the road, more than 100 employees, and no limit for growth. This episode’s guest, however, is the owner of businesses that fit these unusual criteria.
In today’s episode, Tim talks with the peak performer Mark Stoner (President of Ashbusters Chimney Service and author of Blue Collar Gold). Their conversation starts with Mark’s life story, then moves to Mark diving deep into how he has achieved success with his businesses and ends with a discussion about the importance of speed in business.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Why chimney work is an untapped gold mine for hearth retailers (and how to start doing it).
- Why you are the only thing holding yourself back from success (and how accountability is the secret sauce to move you out of your own way).
- Why speed is essential to succeeding in the modern business world (and how to find the perfect relationship between speed and quality).
Don’t let your business be a unicycle that only you, the owner, are riding. Instead, build a business with multiple wheels and people in control so it’s less vulnerable to unexpected obstacles. Listen to this conversation to learn how Mark has used this philosophy to find remarkable success in several businesses.
