My guest today started his first "real" business almost 15 years ago at the age of 21 and equipped with a stack of homemade flyers and his Mom's SUV. This company is Junkluggers, a junk removal and dumpster rental company -- with a twist -- that contributes to the communities they serve and the environment by donating, recycling, and supporting local causes.

What started as a side hustle in 2004 has grown from a one-person show to an Inc. 5000 company serving 60 markets in 13 states. Since their inception, Junkluggers has also become an emerging franchise brand, with a quickly growing number of franchise partners opening around the country.

  • Avoiding overwhelm by trying to not do too many things yourself
  • Why working with business coaches has been crucial to Josh's success
  • The true value of utilizing an integrated marketing approach
