Hail To The Junk King: How Brian Scudamore Turns Trash Into Gold

By , June 11, 2015

There’s a man who collects junk for a living. And he’s made millions in the process.

As a walking, talking, breathing, sneezing King Midas protégé who’s known to surround himself with rusty ovens, dusty desks, and musty mattresses, he’s clearly very unique – every piece of junk he touches turns into gold.

His part-mythological, part-entrepreneurial touch transformed an upstart company (originally founded by a few shaggy-haired college kids with an equally shaggy pickup truck) into an international powerhouse called 1-800-GOT-JUNK?.

Just who exactly is this proverbial King Midas and what’s his story?

His name is Brian Scudamore and he’s the Chief Executive officer of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, a globally-acclaimed junk removal company with over 1,000 trucks on the road throughout Canada, the United States, and Australia. He’ll be speaking about his amazing journey across the harrowing highways of entrepreneurship, as a featured speaker at LTB 2015.

Brian’s brought his junk-to-riches success story to conference stages across the globe and his business leadership abilities have been chronicled by Fortune Magazine, The Huffington Post, and The Wall Street Journal. And now he’s bringing this fascinating tale directly to you.

One last thing.

Don’t worry about shaking The Junk King’s hand when you meet him at LTB 2015. Your arm won’t turn into a solid slab of gold. I can’t say the same about next year’s projected revenues, though.
