    Kenny entered the in-home service industry in 1994 when he bought a truck and plumbing company in western Colorado doing only $1,000 per month in revenue. Pager and “brick phone” in hand, he scaled the company in only a few years to the point of creating personal income and freedom that was virtually unheard of in the industry.  Tune in to learn more about his journey as an entrepreneur, author, trainer and speaker!
