The Going Deep podcast returned to Fayette county for a second interview with one of the area’s top entrepreneurs. J.D. Ewing, President of COE Distributing, regained control of his company just after the Great Recession.

 

J.D. had to secure financing from the bank so he could buy inventory. When they asked for a business plan, J.D. estimated the firm would reach $10 million in revenue in 3 years. 

 

COE Distributing ended up blowing past that number to more than $24 million. They did $9 million in the first year.

 

How?

 

In this podcast, J.D. explains how he systematically removed the constraints to business growth, how he hires team members, and the important lessons of leadership that anyone can use.

 

They’ve ridden this process to being named an INC 5000 fastest-growing company for 6 consecutive years.

 

Pittsburgh’s best conference to Expand your Mind & Fill your Heart happens once a year.

 

J.D. Ewing’s Challenge; Focus on getting engaged with your employees, colleagues, and teammates outside of your normal patterns.
