Humble Beginnings with Mike Rogers

No experience, no degree, no problem! Mike Rogers proves that street-smart salesmanship can be all you need when coupled with hard work and the right people. Within a decade he had grown Killingsworth from $5 million in revenue to almost $24 million, and has moved out of the trailer into a 138,000 square foot corporate center. There’s plenty to learn from a guy like that, including:

  • The real deal, per Mike, as he opens up about his humble beginnings and venture into wealth.

  • Mike’s key performance indicators such as his ‘gross profit per man day’.

  • Business insights on ranking employees and customers, managing chemical costs, vehicle longevity, and more.
