How do you build something from nothing? Hard work, lots of help, and a little bit of luck seem to be the three main components, according to businessman Jerry Isenhour.
Isenhour worked many different jobs from a young age, but nothing stuck for him. He realized that he wasn't meant to just be a cog in a machine. He wanted to create something for himself. With this new determination, Isenhour created a chimney-service business. He shares with listeners the secrets of starting a successful business and how he branched into two other thriving companies - a fireplace and outdoor living retail business and a manufacturing business. He was on his way to creating an empire. Although Isenhour's story shows his individual perseverance, he stresses the help and support he received from his friends and family.
Then, the big crash of 2008 happened, and Isenhour suddenly lost everything. Like so many other Americans that year, he was left wondering how to pick up the pieces of his career. The adventure that follows displays Isenhour's resilience, and it shows that anyone can make the most of a second chance.
