Larry Janesky is the founder and CEO of Contractor Nation and Basement Systems Inc. With over 35 years in the business, Larry has revolutionized the basement waterproofing industry and expanded his ventures across the US and Canada.
Larry started from nothing, selling seeds door-to-door, and now leads a home improvement empire with a 600,000,000 revenue. Larry opens up about resilience, overcoming adversities, and the unglamorous yet crucial aspects of scaling a business.
From his humble beginnings to building a powerhouse in the industry, Larry’s journey is a testament to hard work, smart decisions, and the grit needed to turn adversity into opportunity. This conversation is a rollercoaster of life lessons, blending relatability with entrepreneurial wisdom.
