Entrepreneur Café-the blog of Resicom CEO John Fairclough received the 2010 Top Blog Award.
Sponsored by OnlineMBA.com and AwardingTheWeb.com, a panel of judges reviews nominees that have been submitted or sourced by the panel’s research team. In the case of Entrepreneur Café, the award comes as a pleasant surprise as the nominating team found Entrepreneur Cafe during independent web searches.
Topics on the blog range from staff accountability to risk management and structural clarity. Fairclough uses the format to experience share personal stories of obstacles and best practices. Often asked to present on business strategy, Fairclough began Entrepreneur Café as a means to communicate lessons learned while building Resicom, a national facility maintenance company.
At 24, John launched the first Resicom office from the basement of his future in-laws. By age 30 Resicom had earned over $1 million in revenue and has since passed the $10 million benchmark. Fast forward to today, Resicom has leap-frogged in size and revenue, now occupying a 15,000 square foot facility in the southwest Chicago suburbs. The strategic vision to surpass the $35 million in revenues benchmark should be realized in under 2 years before John turns 40.
John is passionate about providing guidance, mentoring and other resources to assist first-level entrepreneurs in catapulting their business to the next level. Helping entrepreneurs become better business leaders has been personally rewarding.
