Favorite Quote:

“At the beginning of 2020, we had 10 people in the company, now we have 32. Our 2021 plan is to get everyone on the same page. Let them get on their feet in 3 to 6 months, and then we will give them the opportunity to grow and become a leader. Everyone’s leadership style can be different but as long as you have good communication, you’ll get through.” – Mike Lahiff
