#154: Jefferson Davis - Owner of Davis Glass Cleaning Co. - 0 to 100+ clients in 3 years

The FORT with Chris Powers

Jefferson "Trey" Davis is the Owner of Davis Glass Cleaning Company based in Fort Worth, TX. On this episode, Chris and Trey discuss how he decided to make the jump into starting a sweaty business with only one client to over 100 in less than two years. They discuss Davis' day to day schedule and how he balances the actual service with administration work and business growth. The pair also discuss the massive amount of opportunity there is for these types of businesses, and Trey gives an incredible example of how he was making more money cleaning windows for 10 hours a week than he was at his full-time job.

B.) Jefferson Davis, The Confederate President

[Abridged] Presidential Histories

Jefferson Davis was never president of all the United States, but he was president of half of them.Follow Davis as parlays his status as a Mexican-American war hero into a political career as a fiery southern radical, serves as Secretary of War, get's his dream job as general of the confederate Mississippi armies, and days later gets the job he never asked for nor wanted - President of the Confederacy. We'll take a close look at the major decisions he made that helped shape the outcome of the Civil WarWhile we're at it, we'll also look at the Myth of the Lost Cause - a bit of pro confederate revisionism that has tinted how we remember the Civil War in the friendliest way possible for the confederates who started it.Bibliography:1.
