6-14-22 FC4B with Jake Taylor

Uncategorized Jun 13, 2022

What was started as a side business after Jake was let go from his employer, quickly became something more than just a way to feed his family, but a way to provide for his family and the team that would later come. With a background of logistics from the United States Army Reserves, and in economics and entrepreneurship, Curb Appeal started growing from a seasonal business to a year around opportunity. Our unique strategy for hiring and training was to help young entrepreneurs in home services by showing them hands on training on customers service, operations, and business principles to run their own future business while paying them an above average pay for their immediate needs. Some of those early employees later became a CPA, Graphic designer, an Attorney, 4 Washburn University graduates, and one to start and operate a full-time window cleaning business called CleanCo.
