In This Episode
We were fortunate enough to have one of our former clients join us for today’s show, Lisa Holly who is the President & CEO of Berea Moving & Storage Co. She shared several of her stories, starting with how she and her brother took over ownership after the untimely death of her mother.
Early on it was a struggle as the business hadn’t been making money for years and was in some pretty significant debt, but Lisa didn’t want to let it go. So she pulled herself up by her bootstraps and got to work on the business with the help of MVP.
A couple of the biggest things Lisa learned from MVP included the fact that just about anything is negotiable, which comes in handy when you’re in debt with everyone from Uncle Sam to your landlord to your CPA. She also started to master forecasting her cash flow, which helped to bring lots of calmness and energy.
Lisa continues to work by the “MVP Bible” which is how she refers to MVP’s 7 Keys to Success and has a poster on the door in her office so it’s always in front of her. She’s had lots of ups and downs over the first decade of owning the business, but she now feels much more confident with how to deal with just about any situation that presents itself, much of that due to what she learned in her 4 years with MVP.
Hear stories about her nicknames for us (Peanut Butter & Jelly) as well as the degree she earned from the “School of Adam and Jack”.
