On this special episode, Patrick brings us an interview with Donnie Shelton. Donnie is the owner-operator of Triangle Pest Control and Coalmarch Productions, both of which he has grown to multi-million dollar enterprises within the last 10 years. His reliance on checklists and systems, the chief tenets of Build and his first book, Grow!, are a result not only of his personal business growth experience but of his 14 years as a pilot for the United States Air Force. Donnie is passionate about helping fellow service business owners grow their companies by pairing traditional business development with a robust digital marketing strategy and strong workforce management processes.
