New Television Show Profiles “Blue Collar Millionaires”
A new television show entitled Blue Collar Millionaires has hit the airwaves. It profiles “rags to riches” type, grassroots entrepreneurs.
The business owners spotlighted in the new TV show have all experienced amazing success with their companies — most of which provide less than glamorous business services.
Blue Collar Millionaires, which premiered July 15, 2015, on CNBC, reveals how micro companies, many with limited start-up capital, have created multi-million dollar empires out of modest beginnings.
College Hunks Hauling Junk
One such company featured in the initial episode is College Hunks Hauling Junk. This business was started by two guys with a big idea and a rumpled cargo van. College friends, Omar Soliman and Nick Friedman grew a tiny operation that started out hauling junk into a mega enterprise that’s now a $25 Million Dollar enterprise, and growing!
College Hunks Hauling Junk, based in Tampa, Florida, currently has over 50 franchise operations in various cities across the United States.

Small Business versus Grassroots Business
The Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) describes the term “small business” with phrases like “500 employees” and “$7.5 million in average annual receipts” However, in the eyes of many, terms like this do NOT describe a small business in the traditional sense, which makes the profile of the entrepreneurs on the new show both refreshing and inspiring.
Blue Collar Millionaires is a reminder that ‘the little guy’ can make it; the average worker can build wealth, with hard work, a vision, and not necessarily a ton of money. It’s a reminder of the American dream.
The production also sheds light on the fact that small business start-ups that include service work, like junk hauling, foreclosure cleaning, trash out businesses (http://www.e-junkie.com/stonecottagebooks), lawn maintenance services, and the like, can lead to exponential earnings and success for grassroots entrepreneurs who don’t mind sweat equity and getting their hands dirty.
