Renegade Detroit Investors Message Board › Renegade Detroit Investors tomorrow MARCH 5 6pm - John Terrell
This months speaker is John Terrell, the owner of Burly Guys Junk Removal based in Waterford. John owned a commercial janitorial service for 30 years, until the economy made him rethink his business. Customers were already asking him to dispose of their unwanted items, and he saw the opportunity to make a business out of it.
John’s significant other is Susan Tower, currently living in Sarasota Florida as they figure out how to spend more time together and run this business in several locations. He has no children, but they have two cats. Jazz owns Susan, and Chessie owns John.
John started Burly Guys from scratch and has now expaned it into another state, Florida.
John will be discussing: How he started his business, why he picked the business he did, how he markets his business, the terrible mistakes that he made, and how he expaned his business into another state! There will also be time for Q&A at the end.
Not all businesses have to be real estate and John is a great example of what you can do with a good idea and lots of work. Maybe you have an idea in your head. Come out and learn so you can get it off the ground.
Special Bonus Night!
We will be celebrating one year at our new location Silas and 4 years officially as Renegade Detroit Investors! There will be cake, membership specials, and whatever else I think up!
See you there.
