How Nick Small Built an Asphalt Business Empire| Successful Life Podcast

What can you do with a couple of a hundred dollars? 

When Nick quit his job, he had $697, which he used to start his company US Pave. He started with acquiring a domain, did the logo, putting some systems in place and then started looking for people to serve. Nick's greatest motivation to start a business was his desire to give customers what they needed. 

Nick believes that to build a business successfully, you must be resilient, choose your team wisely, treat your employees well and do everything in your power to retain your customers. Nick urges us to build great company culture. He believes that when you take care of your employees, they will take care of what is important to you. 

Growing up, Nick saw his mother struggle to become a registered nurse when he was eight years old. When his mum became a registered nurse, their lives changed for the better, and poverty was no longer part of them. Nick learnt a lot from his mother, and he carries them to date.

In this episode, Nick Small will tell us how he built the company, US Pave, from scratch to where he is today.
