Brian Scudamore was born in San Francisco, California in 1970. He had difficulties reading and math, so he dropped out of high school rather than retaking the class. Despite not graduating from high school he convinced Concordia University to admit him in their business program. He left two years later to attend the University of British Columbia. Now, onto the rest of the story.
In 1989, while waiting in line at McDonalds’ drive-thru he noticed something that triggered him to act. He purchased a truck, going door-to-door looking for business. It took off faster than expected so he dropped out of the University of British Columbia to focus on his company.
His company expanded in Canada and also in the United States. In 2005, he opened up the Australia market. Since then he has started three more companies. In 2004, he was inducted into the Young Presidents’ Organization. He was named one of the three Best Companies to Work For Awards and Entrepreneur of the Year Award to name a few.
For you see while Brian had difficulties in reading and math he had a great business mind. Maybe you’ve heard of the companies he started. 1-800-Got-Junk, WOW 1 Day Painting, You Move Me and Shack Shine. Wonder what he’ll come up with next. Until tomorrow keep those pearly whites showing.
