3 years ago, I brought one of the active members in the Site Shed community onto the show to talk
about how he used
creative marketing in his business to make it to the top. Back then, he spiked a lot of interest in the community because of his unique approach to obtaining work and winning trust.

Fast forward 3 years later, and David Gatto — the CEO of Future Solutions Fence & Fence Supply is
back to share with us how his journey has been over the previous years. Growing his business and
turning it into a 3-million dollar company in just a span of 3 years.

I know you’re interested to find out how his journey transpired and what he did to grow his business so much in so little time. It’s not to say that the journey was easy but if you’d like to know how David did it,

Lots of gold nuggets that’ll be unearthed in the course of our conversation.

    I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
