About the Author
Brian Scudamore has always taken the road less traveled. At nineteen, he pioneered the industry of professional junk removal with 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, turning a chore people avoid into an exceptional customer service experience. He then scaled that success into three more home-service brands, WOW 1 DAY PAINTING, You Move Me, and Shack Shine. Brian's Willing to Fail philosophy stems from his belief in the power of dreaming big, taking risks, and learning from mistakes. Through franchising, he's giving thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs the chance to live their dreams of business ownership.
