Meet the Builder: Jamie Verdura - "My Parents Divorce Sent Me in a Different Direction."
The Story of Jamie Verdura.
My parents divorce sent me in a completely different direction...
I was on track to graduate a Catholic high school and head off to college. Living a sheltered life.
At 16 years old, I transferred from the Catholic school to a public school.
And had to work to pay for everything I needed.
I tried junior college for two semesters and failed both miserably.
Realizing it wasn't for me, I started working full time.
I went from selling cars...
To working at a local lumber yard.
To becoming an apprentice.
To a hands on builder.
To being licensed at the age of 25 and building my first custom home at age 28.
And now running a company of 18 and loving it.
What excites you about the future?
Surprisingly enough, I'm actually excited about the current situation in the country.
I've learned to like a challenge.
It motivates me.
"I believe new technologies and the way we conduct ourselves will grow our industry in leaps and bounds very quickly."
What's your mantra?
Yes, you have to work smart, but never forget you have to work hard too.
Where can people connect with you?
