Did you miss the most exclusive industry event of the year? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. While nothing compares to actually being at RYNOx, guests of the podcast are in for a treat. Our featured fireside chat at RYNOx 2024 had two legends – Paul Kelly of Parker & Sons, and Jonathan Bancroft of Morris-Jenkins.

Fireside Wisdom with Paul and Jonathan

From Jonathan’s journey from an HVAC Apprentice to leading a 100MM+ home services company to Paul’s journey from Roto-Rooter and Service America to Blue Dot, Parker & Sons all they way to the Wrench Group – the amount of wisdom between these two is incredible. They share their stories, talk about what’s made them successful, and give some insight into what YOU can do to scale your own business.

In this episode, Paul and Jonathan talk about:
  • How failure is part of the path to success
  • Being a growth and support organization
  • Both guests having written books
  • The #1 mistake that contractors make
  • Spending a lot of time and money into training
  • The importance of a growth mindset
  • Morris-Jenkins University
  • Hiring outside the industry
  • Making the most out of your current opportunities
  • Learning from others
  • And more!

Both Jonathan and Paul have been on the podcast before! Check out our previous RYNOx episode with Paul and Josh Kelly, and our episode with Jonathan.

Growth is the Goal

Whether you’re a smaller contractor or an operator for a 100+MM organization, there’s always something more you can learn. This growth mindset is what has propelled both Jonathan and Paul in their careers! Get involved with a best practices group, find like-minded individuals to push you and hold you accountable, and most importantly – DO something. Learning won’t do you any good if you don’t implement it.

Until next episode!
