Kevin Jablon had no choice but to become an entrepreneur. It was in his DNA.
From standing on a street corner in Philly selling pretzels, to taking the leap in starting his own flooring business 11 years ago, Kevin always knew he wanted to be his own boss.
He originally had this entrepreneur spirit because he wanted to make money. As Kevin puts it, he had champagne tastes. He wanted the newest shoes. He wanted to be at the coolest concerts. Even when Kevin started Spartan Surfaces, he did so because he wanted to increase his income.
But this all changed years later when he saw how big of an impact his business had on his employees. He saw the families it touched, and Kevin was forever changed. He could no longer be focused only on himself and the money he was making.
He needed to focus on the culture of his company and how he could do the most good for the most amount of people. Spartan Surfaces moved from a “me” culture to a “we” culture almost overnight. Kevin wants his legacy to be that of a man who has impacted a lot of lives directly - both at work and at home!
Now he’s proud to say that he’d rather have a great culture at work and a happy home life than a great P&L statement. We sat down with Kevin on this episode of the Cannonball Mindset Podcast to talk about his journey as a transformed entrepreneur.
