Grow Your Story & Turn Debt to Revenue with Tommy Mello

Tommy Mello founded A1 Garage with $50,000 in debt and a simple dream—to both literally and figuratively enable people to open doors and transform their homes. Now, his garage company has grown to $40 million in revenue with over 200 employees in 10 different states. Tommy has also built a lead generation real estate company that's billing over $10,000 a month.

Most importantly, Tommy has expanded his mission to open doors in new ways for entrepreneurs across the country. From sales to marketing to hiring, Tommy Mello shares his multifaceted knowledge and expertise with others so that they may grow their organizations to reach new heights, just as he did. 

Tommy's expert advice has been regularly featured in well-known publications, such as Inc. Magazine and Forbes. He also hosts a weekly podcast called Home Service Expert, where he interviews other industry experts to explore how they became world-class and what they do.

In this episode…

It's every entrepreneur's dream to build their business to a point where it makes them money while they sleep. What separates the people who achieve this dream from those who don’t is the ability to articulate their purpose, live their values, and engage with their communities.

For Tommy Mello, achieving your goals relies on your ability to be profitable. He used an expert business strategy to grow his organization to top profitability and scalability, and now he wants to help other entrepreneurs do the same. 

In this episode of Drive Profit with Purpose Podcast, Fran Biderman-Gross interviews Tommy Mello about how he turned debt to revenue with his leading garage door company, A1 Garage. They explore how to systemize your business, why you should give back to your community, and how to turn your team members into top performers. Stay tuned.
