A Short History:
Jeffrey was raised in a highly-entrepreneurial environment, with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings and parents excelling as entrepreneurs. Over the dinner table every night as a child, he took part in discussions of the business challenges from that day. Jeffrey’s first paid job was at the age of 7, and he worked in the family business throughout his school years. After earning his engineering degree and MBA, and working as an international business consultant, Jeffrey took over his family’s landscape business at the age of 34. He quickly grew the company into a $10 million enterprise ($15 million in today’s dollars). Under Jeffrey’s leadership and focus to customer service, relationship building and referrals, the business expanded into an umbrella contracting company with a diverse range of services. When Jeffrey left the helm of his thriving family business, it was time to nurture his true passion: Entrepreneurship. He launched his own consulting firm, eager to give back to other entrepreneurs in the contracting world. He knew that many owners hunger for proven methods to speed up and manage their growth—and he knows exactly how to help them.
