In April of 2011 John created The Shoe Shine Guys. A mobile shoe shine service that started with an idea, one truck, and a handful of clients. They now have three vehicles, a full service cobbler store, and hundreds of clients. The Shoe Shine Guys is adding new clients every month and receive calls at least once a quarter about expanding to other parts of the country.
As a financial consultant John had the opportunity to speak in front of groups of 200-250 people on the merits of financial, estate, and tax planning. As a Christian he has been able to share his testimony and life story personally and through his blog that he has been writing for the past several years.
He has had several articles written about The Shoe Shine Guys in the local Detroit, Michigan media since 2010.
