Our guest this week on The Secrets to Winning is someone who has taken on an industry that many would consider stale, not very innovative – some would probably refer to the industry as being “stuck-in-its-ways” – and absolutely flipped it on its head.
This week, I had the privilege of sitting down with Cam Doody, Founder and President of Bellhops which is now the fastest growing moving company in the US. Based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Bellhops has accomplished this feat without owning or operating a single truck of their own, and serving over 50 cities for local and long-distance moves.
What we’re doing today is so dangerous to the traditional moving business because it’s brought something completely different to the table.
This episode is going to give you some great insight about innovation, decision-making under pressure, and how Cam and his team have challenged every aspect of how to serve the $18B moving space.
Also, if you have a big move coming up, local or long-distance – you should check out GetBellhops.com.
