He Makes $10000000 in Revenue After Spending Years Being Terrified To Talk To People. An Interview with Michael Hinderliter

Powerwash.com is owned by Michael Hinderliter, who distributes power washing equipment, parts, and supplies. During his junior year, he spent time repairing and building equipment for his father. This helped him develop the skills that empowered him to succeed today. For over 30 years, Powerwash.com has been helping businesses, and home consumers clean their surfaces with top-of-the-line pressure washers and equipment, cleaning chemicals, as well as consulting and training.


In this episode, we'll explore Michael's approach to surviving hard times as a business owner, how he deals with challenging situations, and how he manages to make big money despite agoraphobia. 


“Knowing how to run your business and do that kind of stuff. But to take what that experience I went through and how to apply that in my business. I think it taught me to be more personable and to be transparent in who I am, and recognize where my strengths are and allow other people that had better skill sets to do different things within the company.”
