I am a husband, father, Air Force Veteran, and entrepreneur. I hold a bachelor’s degree in economics from Missouri Western State University and an associate degree in metals technology from the United States Air Force. Having started several business, each with their own failures and successes, I would like to share my experiences with others who aspire to be successful. Traditionally, you will not hear much from an entrepreneur until they have “made it”. I do not have an excess of wealth, nor have I seen massive success. I am in the in between stage of entrepreneurship. I have learned a lot from the ventures I have started and have enjoyed relative success. The most recent company, Atlas Construction and Repair Co, grossed half a million dollars in its first 10 months.
