At the age of 23 I moved to Ft. Smith, AR and stared a grass roots Industrial Rubber Distributorship. The Company flourished and merged with several other similar businesses, created an ESOP, and grew to 12 locations in 6 states with 160 employees and $48m in annual sales. I was second in command when I was forced out and sold my interest in the business in 2007. In 2010 I became a partner in a local Drug Testing company which was struggling, I currently run that business. The company has grown nicely and became profitable in the second year of my tenure. Our 2014 sales were up 30% and I see that trend continuing.
