In this episode, Manny recounts his journey from engineering to entrepreneurship, a path that landed him in the CEO seat of Contract Sweeping Services. Manny acquired two companies from the same owner, right at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. He discusses how he recognized and realized synergies across both companies and how he has driven value creation post-acquisition. We also discuss the impact of his visa status on his entrepreneurial journey.

Some advice from Manny:

"You really need to understand the why of what you’re doing. You know, if it’s getting a fancy title or making some money, I don’t know if that’s the right reason to do this. Title wanes off really fast when you have the fourth HR issue of the week. So I would really, really encourage people to understand their why."

"What attracted me to entrepreneurship was that I wanted to work with people, I wanted to work in teams, I wanted to create a vision, get people excited about that vision. And that’s where the pleasure of running a company lay for me. For me, entrepreneurship through acquisition was love at first sight."
