Meet - Ben

What is your current occupation? Small Business Owner of The Junkluggers of Colorado

What do you love most about [your industry]?  The opportunity to provide value to our local community through our mission-driven business!

How do you define success?  Impact, Results, Fulfillment.

Who inspires you?  My children, wife, and parents.

If you could choose anyone as a mentor, who would you choose and why? Leonardo Da Vinci – He brought art, science & entrepreneurship together more fluidly than anyone before or since. I’d just need to learn Italian

What advice would you give to someone who wants to enter [your field]?  Know that this is 100% what you want to do and have a realistic/conservative financial plan. Things will not go how you envision – be prepared to adapt and persevere.

What’s one thing — either industry-related or not — you learned in the last month?   It’s not a new learning, but I was reminded of an old Warren Buffet adage in the past month: “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.”

Now for the fun stuff

What’s something about you (a fun fact) that not many people know? I’ve spent 8 years of my life in Belgium, The Netherlands and France.

What is your favorite hobby? It’s a tie between travel and spending time outdoors (camping, hiking, etc.)
