McEwen worked 65-hour weeks, and didn’t earn a paycheck for two years. But now, finances have become stable, and the business has continued to expand.
“Within the next couple of years, we expect our business to be grossing a million dollars or more,” McEwen said.
Recently, a friend reached out to McEwen and said there was an open position at a regional bank.
“I had to think about that for a second,” McEwen said. “I felt like no, I don’t want to do that. I am committed to this. This is my lifestyle. This is where I want to be.”
