This is a story of a man who managed to crack the glass ceiling, create a business that provides him the freedom lifestyle he always wanted, and say “so long!” to corporate America – all while working the 9 to 5, raising his daughters, and handling all of life’s liabilities!

Today’s Guest – Jeff Mendelson
Today’s guest, Jeff Mendelson, shared with us today how he went from the frustrating days of bumping against the glass ceiling in a technical job, seeing all the unqualified people around him getting promoted instead of him, and through creating the exit route and finally – getting off the hamster wheel.
But the most surprising part about Jeff’s story, is that by walking away from the safety of the 9-5, he ended up saving himself:
Over the last 5 years, all of his previous employers went out of business. The last man standing, was Jeff Mendelson, and his business, Las Olas Tech.
Las Olas, meaning “the waves” in Spanish, provides online solutions – from web design, social media management, pay per click campaigns and SEO, to complete web presence strategy.
There are two important lessons that I want you to pay attention to when listening to today’s story:
The first, is How Jeff realized that he just doesn’t have the time required to build a sustainable business while working for the man and being a family man, and the unorthodox solution that he found to make it work.
Second, is the business strategy that allowed Jeff to turn a service business charging money for hours into recurring revenue streams that guaranteed that bills will be paid – even when the market took a downfall.
