Uncategorized May 14, 2023

We Founded Growth Hub to Serve Aspiring Business Builders. We combine our own passion and skills with the top training curriculum on the market to deliver fast ROI.

It’s just not right that so many business owners end up overextended and at risk of failure. We believe people who were super achievers also have the potential to be next level leaders for their business and can reap the rewards, both financially and in their lifestyle, for the effort they put into building a business.

There should be a payoff for the sacrifice!

Daniel Ray

Daniel grew up with a passion for pushing the limits, whether it was skateboarding, bmx, or drag racing motorcycles. Shortly after high school, he learned a trade and has stayed in the construction industry for two decades.

He is the Vice President of Business Development at Preferred Floor & Tile CO., a regional eight-figure flooring company, and the same company where he was a laborer nearly 20 years ago installing floors. He is a co-founder and Co-Chair of the North Carolina Rental Home Council and is an Associate Director of the Home Builders Association of Greater Charlotte.

Daniel founded Growth Hub to help business leaders develop excellence in their personal and professional lives. When he’s not working or working out, Daniel enjoys time with his wife Erin and their 4 boys, and occasionally a good day on the golf course.


Justin Kohns

Justin grew up playing sports and spending as much time outside as possible. His first summer job was mowing grass and he’s always enjoyed active work. He excelled in school, especially math, and has always been inclined towards problem solving.

After college, Justin spent a couple years teaching high school math and also discovered he had interest in small business. This interest led him to the Window Hero franchise, where he spent 12 years and participated in all aspects of the business, from running a crew, to sales, operations, and franchise development. During his time with Window Hero, the company grew from 1 location with 4 employees to 14 locations with over 75 employees. Justin remains involved with Window Hero as an owner of two franchises.

Justin’s passion is to help business owners with strategy and execution. He loves the challenge of bringing business principles to life with Growth Hub members. Justin is a Certified Profit First Professional and a Certified Advanced Insights Consultant.
