From taking college not too serious, to being on a reality TV show, to building a multi-unit franchise, Nick and his partner Omar Soliman have proven themselves to be fabulous entrepreneurs. We were able to do a phone interview with Nick to find out how they started this company at such a young age and manage to succeed. The idea of the business is to move junk that no one wants or can move themselves, weather it is a lot of junk or just large items.
Nick sent us some books that he and Omar had written entitled Effortless Entrepreneur, and his philosophy was summed up in his inscription: “Keep living the Dream”.
We learned that there is a big difference in running a franchise of a junk business vs. actually hauling junk for people. There was a big learning curve to figure out how to sell and how to service his new customer: the franchisee.

Also joining us in the studio is Reed Silberman from Inkmonstrwho has started a great business out of his entrepreneurial drive: large format digital printing. They wrap cars, buses, building, and just about anything along with making signs and a whole host of other similar products. He has been able to turn his professional snowboarding career into a thriving business, and has some great information to share with small business owners.
