It’s incredible to find stories of self-made entrepreneurs who’ve started with nothing and built their way up. Not only do tales like that give you motivation, but they give you hope that you can achieve anything you want with hard work and patience. One story you may find interesting is the story of Filip Boksa, a Polish entrepreneur who moved to the USA at an early age with his parents. Today Boksa is best known for being the CEO and Co-founder of BookingKoala, a platform that helps thousands of entrepreneurs from all over the world start and grow service-type businesses.
This Polish entrepreneur started just like many of us, going to school, hustling on the side, and working a job to scrape some extra money when he was young. When Boksa was in his early teens, he’d cut grass and shovel snow for extra cash. Then when he turned 16, he began working for his dad’s carpeting business. After doing that for about two years, he realized that if he doesn’t figure something out, this is what he’ll be doing for the rest of his life.
At 19, Boksa decided to take a risk, and he started King of Maids with his best friend from high school. Together they invested about $6,000, and within three short years, the company did over $5,000,000 in combined revenue. He quit his job, dropped out sophomore year of college, and focused 100% of his time and efforts on his business ventures. Although he never wanted to start a cleaning company, it gave him a way to have a better life and allowed him to find his true passion later on. While working on King of Maids, Boksa learned that he enjoyed working on and developing technology.
He then started BookingKoala with his developer, who, up to this point, built everything out for him, including the entire King of maids website. He built a powerful bond with the developer, and at this point, they were brothers. BookingKoala quickly became the home to thousands of entrepreneurs around the world. BookingKoala is proving to be a powerhouse for startups and already existing businesses. They have a Facebook group of users helping each other succeed. Some of these users are startup entrepreneurs, and others do millions of dollars in revenue annually. If you’re interested in starting, this is the place to be.
Apart from the group, you can start a free 14-day trial of the software and see why everyone is slowly turning to BookingKoala to power their service-type businesses. From a quick look at their website, you can set up your store or use their default options for new startups and launch in less than 60 seconds. These options give you the power and ability to compete with multi-million dollar businesses immediately, without hiring expensive designers and developers. Not only will you grow a business faster, but you won’t need a lot of capital to get started.
