Description

Tommy Mello is the owner and operator of A1 Garage Door Service, one of the most successful home service businesses in the country. He also hosts the Home Service Expert podcast, was named a Top Entrepreneur Under 35, and owns and invests in several other businesses ranging from Christmas lights to mobile apps.

In this episode, Tommy breaks down how you can build wealth with recession-resistant, blue-collar service businesses – and how to have fun doing it. You'll learn how he went from $50,000 in debt to a massive exit and "life-changing" money, all while helping his team members achieve their own dreams and undergoing a personal evolution in his leadership, health, and faith.

Tommy also shares:

- Why arbitrage is the one business skill to rule them all
- Why home service businesses thrive despite pandemics, recessions, and the advent of AI
- Vanity metrics and the only 4 Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) he cares about
- Why you should "always be recruiting," and why he doesn't worry about giving away secrets to his competition
- The #1 mistake he sees people make when starting service businesses
- How to hire A-players and motivate them with equity and other performance incentives
- His religious faith and the "deal" he made with Jesus when his father was on the brink of death
- His health regime: Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), supplements, and massage
- The health benefits he's experienced since abstaining from alcohol
- Exactly what he'd do if he had to start over with no money
