Building a company from the ground up is never easy. From real estate to online retailing and everything in between, new ventures come up against obstacles all the time. While many give up at the first sign of trouble, there are a select few who choose to push through and in doing so, reach levels of success they could have never imagined. Our guests today, Jack Gibson and Jeff Schechter, are the type of entrepreneurs who view failure not as a reason to stop but simply as a sign to keep going and improve. Armed with this attitude, they now have a turnkey property that is well on its way to succeeding.
