Meet Keith Kalfas
I started out in East Side Metro Detroit living paycheck to paycheck in a dead-end 9-5 job. I have always loved the idea of being financially independent and free from a job that I hated. So I decided to start my own landscaping business. For a long time I was just scraping by, but with sheer determination and not an ounce of quit in me, I scaled my business all the way to six figures. Was it hard? Of course, it was, but all of the effort I put in then continues to pay me today.
With my own business and no boss to answer to, I was able to make time to become an influencer in the industry. I took everything I learned from my experience and started making as much content around it as possible. I think everyone should be able to be financially independent if they are willing to work for it, and if I can help them along the way then everything I do is worth it.
I still run my landscaping business but now I spend a lot of my time teaching the thousands of students of Keith Kalfas Academy how to grow their businesses. I also travel around the nation speaking about growing small businesses. To date I have spoken at the Huge Convention, the UAMCC, IGNITE, CSA, and several other industry events. I have also been featured in Turf Magazine, and the Window Cleaning Magazine UK.
Other than speaking about small businesses I have also written two books with a detailed description of exactly how someone can go from nothing to having a six-figure landscaping or window cleaning business.
Not to mention I also make a ton of free content on YouTube and on my blog about landscaping, window washing, and getting out of the 9-5 grind. Check them out if you have the time, you will not regret it.
