"I've worked with Scott for more than 25 years, and his books and strategies got me to where I am today. I came to him to learn how to compete with the big boys, and now I am one of them."
- Herb Hovey, Owner, HH Hovey
"If I had a friend who was struggling with their business like I was, I would say the same thing that was said to me: "I know a guy who will change your life. And that guy is Scott Ritchey."
- Rich Mullins, Owner, H2O Plumbing
"With the aid of these strategies, I took my business from $600,000 to its current multimillion-dollar volume, and I'm well on my way to my goal of changing not only my family tree but the family tree of my employees as well, as I am able to offer them more than most companies because of my higher profits. Scott Ritchey gave me the business know-how I needed to grow my business."
- Brian Schneider, Owner, Allegiance Heating & Air
"After applying Scott's strategies, my growth continued. In 2015, I did $1.2 million in sales. Last year, I did $1.5 million. This year, $1.7 million. That is a nice steady rate of growth, and we are currently preparing to expand into a 3,200-square-foot space."
- Werner Vankleef, Owner, Vankleef's Heating and Air
"We're showing growth every year. We're up to an average of $200,000-plus per service truck, which is better than the industry benchmark. We started as a 100% residential company, but today we have a very strong commercial business as well; that's where the big money is. That's what I learned, to go where the biggest profit was. I would say to other business owners, you need someone like Scott Ritchey."
- Van Edwards, Owner, Edwards Refrigeration
