Podcast cover

For more FREE Wealthy Contractor resources go to www.TheWealthyContractor.com

This week’s guest is Frank Farmer, President and CEO of American Metal Roofs in Flint, MI.

Frank grew up in an extremely impoverished family with the unlikely dream of becoming a physician. Right before he graduated Michigan State University, he realized that being a physician wasn’t practical for him.

He knew someone who was successful working within a window business and took a position in that industry. Working his way up, he helped grow that company to over $20 million before leaving to start his own company, American Metal Roofs.

From his system-building methods to the interesting process he used to develop the morals within his business, there’s a lot to take away from this conversation, so you’ll probably want to listen to it more than once.
