Colin DeHaan launched his brick and mortar service business in 2016 as a first generation entrepreneur. This massive risk was taken with a 6 month old son and wife who stayed home, raising their son and supporting him! But also with a lot of Faith! Colins business did over $2M in sales last year, and is working their first merger and location launch this year to truly 10X the company. Pushing the limits is the fuel that keeps him from wandering into a million different business. In 2022 Colin was on boarded as a Conquer Coach with Automate Grow Sell and is stoked to help other business owners break the chains of working a job, and seeing their family lineage changed!
