Are you a happy, upbeat person? Do people like to be around you? Do you have that cheerful, get-it-done type of grit and determination?
Would you like to be a part of a company that believes in you and can help you with your big plans for the future?
If you've answered 'Yes' then please stick with me for 3 short minutes...
I dropped out of college when I discovered what I wanted to do. What I'm about to say may sound crazy, but I was waiting in the drive-thru line at McDonald's when everything around me began to glow. It was that famous moment you always hear about in someone's life. You know, when the angels start to sing and you suddenly know the answer to every question.
It happened when I saw an old pickup truck with the words 'Junk Hauling' and a telephone number spray-painted on the sides of the bed. I said, "I could do that."
My life changed forever in that moment.
That's the sort of moment I want you to have.
Fast-forward two decades and 1-800-GOT JUNK? is the world's largest junk removal company. Franchises are virtually* sold-out in every big city and town in the US, Canada and Australia. Dozens upon dozens of millionaires have made their fortunes in our company. I want that to happen to you, too.
You might be asking. 'How are you going to do that if 1-800-GOT-JUNK? is virtually* sold-out.' Well, that's where O2E Brands comes in. O2E stands for Ordinary to Exceptional. 1-800-GOT-JUNK? taught us how to take a very ordinary, fragmented, mom-and-pop industry and make it exceptional through customer experience.
It also helped me see that professionalizing the junk removal industry wasn't just a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I was able to take our proven formula for making ordinary businesses exceptional - and I created O2E Brands. I was ready for the much bigger opportunity!
Then, as if by magic - I started seeing beat-up old vehicles in other home services everywhere! It's like I began reliving my McDonald's drive-thru moment over-and-over-again. I've seen rusty old painting vans, dirty window washing vehicles and moving trucks that you'd be crazy to trust your life's belongings in.
My dream is to create opportunities for 1,000 entrepreneurs. Happy people just like you.
You know by now, that 1-800-GOT-JUNK? is not the company I have in mind for you. We're putting together a whole new family of Franchise Partners and the people at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? will be your cousins.
Are you beginning to understand my opening questions: "Are you a happy, upbeat person? Do people like to be around you? Do you have that cheerful, get-it-done type of grit and determination? " You can't make an industry exceptional without people who make other people smile.
If you're one of those people – and I think you are – here's what you need to do next:
I want everything around you to begin to glow. I want you to hear angels sing. I want you to have your very own McDonald's drive-thru moment.
