Brian Scudamore is a serial entrepreneur who is known for pioneering the professional junk hauling industry with 1-800-GOT-JUNK?

Since conquering that market, he’s gone on to apply the O2E (ordinary to exceptional) formula to the painting, moving, and home-detailing industry with WOW 1 DAY PAINTING, You Move Me, and Shack Shine.

Currently, he’s at the helm of a home-service empire with franchise locations in every major city in North America and Australia. He’s a respected industry leader and speaker, well-known in the business community for his belief in people and passion for innovation.

In this podcast, Brian talks about his book, WTF?! and why hiring people should involve a beer and barbecue test to see if they fit into your company culture. He shares his strategy for conducting high impact team and company meetings and how to structure your work week to maximize think time, meetings, and family time.

His companies have appeared on ABC Nightline, Good Morning America, Dr. Phil, CNN, The Today Show, Oprah, and CNBC. Brian’s story has been featured in Fortune Magazine, The New York Times, Huffington Post, and The Wall Street Journal. He contributes regularly to Forbes.

Brian is a strong believer in ongoing personal and professional development, and has attended programs offered by MIT for several years. If he’s not launching a new brand or coming up with a new, big idea, he’s biking or hanging out with his family in Vancouver, BC.
