Consulting4Contractors is so glad to welcome Mark Black, owner of Men In White Painting, to the podcast. Mark started Men In White, located in Mt. Vernon, Illinois, after a few "false starts" in the painting industry.
We admire Mark, not only for his vision of what's possible, but his determination, humility, and not trying to do everything on his own.
Here's a great quote from show host Scott Lollar that sums up who this episode is for:
"Mark is classic entrepreneur and entrepreneurs chase shiny objects every day...if that's you Mark's a kindred spirit...I would say over the last four months... I've seen a lot of growth...[and] if you're going to grow in a significant way and [Mark's] talking towards the $2,000,000 this year, you are going to have to stay in your lane and ascend to more of a CEO level and mentor and be more leadership and monitor your data and let your people do their thing or else you're gonna get stuck."
Mark's story isn't just hustling and picking yourself up by the bootstraps.
It's taking a good, honest look at what you're good at, what you're not good at, leveraging the strengths, delegating the weaknesses, then creating a company culture where loyal employees feel like family.
Mark has long blown past "Death Valley" (between $500k and $750k annual revenue), and we hope his story inspires you to do the same.
