What makes some businesses boom and others flop? The stakes are high for entrepreneurs, and there’s no single path to success. But that doesn’t mean we can’t learn something from the business owners who have thrived over the years.
The Rave Stage is hosted by Melissa Marro, the founder of two successful home staging companies, and moderated by Kate Lewis. Melissa is all about the business side of staging. She loves comparing notes with entrepreneurs in wildly different lines of work. On The Rave Stage, Melissa sits down with local business leaders to share what experiences led to their success. She also touches on what failures were necessary to finally get that big “win.”
This week, we spoke with Mike Getka, the Director of Business Development for JDog Florida East. JDog isn’t just a junk removal company. JDog brings opportunities to veterans in need and finds a new home for the majority of the items they acquire through their removal services. Fittingly, Mike shares with us what it means to give back as a business leader and how to run a community-first operation.
