Tom Amoruso was going nowhere with his small construction company. He thought he was changing jobs to sell shelving, but he ultimately decided he could do better on his own. Today, Tom’s Shelving Concepts designs and manufactures American-made commercial steel shelving and is on course to grow 30 percent this year.
Thirty-four years ago, Beth Wolff suddenly found herself a single mom with two young kids to raise; she knew she needed to do something—and fast. She became a real estate agent for the flexible hours, realized she was pretty good at it and, a few years later, launched her own brokerage. The Internet has changed the residential real estate marketplace, economic cycles have come and gone, and Beth has consistently managed to operate a successful business. Leisa Holland-Nelson conducts an interview with the founder of Beth Wolff Realtors.
