College Hunks Hauling Junk Co-founder and President Nick Friedman is increasingly seen as a national expert on business topics

Nick Friedman, President and Co-founder of the College Hunks Hauling Junk franchise, is increasingly seen as a national business expert.

When one world’s leading business publications is looking for an expert to discover entrepreneurship, whom does it turn to? Forbes recently turned to College Hunks Hauling Junk franchise owner Nick Friedman to give advice to business owners and aspiring business owners.

His article, “How to Navigate the Jungle of Business Uncertainty,” provides a peek into the insights that have helped Nick and co-founder Omar Soliman turn College Hunks Hauling Junk into a major brand.

Here are some excerpts from the piece, which you can read in full on Forbes’ website:

“We all know money doesn’t grow on trees. But, even if it did, would you have what it takes to make sure your tree grows tall and strong? A business is a lot like a mythical money tree in that respect. In both cases, the fruits of your labor are not easily cultivated, especially at first.” …

“Invest your time, money and energy in the right places, and your operation will expand. Give your business just the right amount of advertising, networking and reinvestment, and the returns will sprout. Talk to your employees to show them you care and reward them when they’re performing well, and they will continue to perform.”

“And remember, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to grow a fig tree — it will give you tasty fruit and is easy to grow. But, they rarely get taller than 30 feet or so. So if your vision is to have a small, easily sustained business, you’ll be able to enjoy your profits just about every year.”

“Redwoods, on the other hand, can take centuries to develop but will grow to be hundreds of feet tall. These are the Macy’s, J.P. Morgans and DuPonts of the forest, founded by entrepreneurs who had true vision for what they wanted to create. There’s a lot of sacrifice involved and it’s not easy, but that’s what it takes to build a giant, landmark company.”
