The challenges that arise while we are setting up our own business often put us in a spot where it becomes really hard to breathe. All that pressure of getting things done on time takes a toll on our body, mind and even our relationships. Still, we keep on moving and pushing thinking that perhaps once everything is properly settled, we will enjoy the good days.
A business with a purpose
David Wescott, the CEO, and founder of Transblue knows the struggles of an entrepreneur all too well. He started his business with the intent to help people.
Founded in 2004 Washington based Transblue is a general contracting company. Transblue is licensed bonded and insured, as well as is a member of the Better Business Bureau. Transblue is also a 2019 BBB Torch Award Winner for Ethics. They work with commercial and residential clients to put together projects that enhance their properties. “Because we are in the field of construction, we have the opportunity to make people’s dreams become a reality,” says David. “Our projects increase the livability in a home or business as they change the way a space is utilized and viewed.” Essentially, they provide enhanced living spaces. Transblue can handle any job like landscaping, decking, outdoor kitchens, electrical, plumbing, etc. By addressing every aspect of a project, they save their clients from having to work with multiple trades and vendors. It is their turnkey operation that gives them an edge over others in the industry.
“Our projects increase the livability in a home or business as they change the way a space is utilized and viewed.”
In late 2018 when Transblue reached its apex, David decided he wanted to share his knowledge with those looking to accomplish similar dreams of owning a successful business. He tells Aspioneer, “I was at a snow and ice conference, a speaker was sharing a story about how he was at Disneyland, taking his first-ever vacation with his wife and two girls, and he got a work call as they were walking into the park. He took the call, spent 1.5 hours on the call and ended up getting in an argument with his wife, not even going into the park that day. Not to mention the disappointment of his two girls. Six months later he couldn’t even remember what the issue was. I looked around the room and about 160 people were nodding in agreement. I knew then the business was broken, and I needed to share the process I had built. I needed to share this with other business-minded people so they could experience the quality of life that I live in. I needed to franchise, not to make more money but to help my fellow men.”
Being in this space for 20 years, David saw that most business owners are totally exhausted building their businesses as they spend at least 50-60 hours a week at work without a single day off. Their struggle to keep their lives and families together was real and intoxicating. David wanted to help such people grow with their business by living their lives to the fullest. He says, “The franchise was born with the idea that we would help those in business not be consumed by their business. So, we built a highly profitable business that does not require a high investment in labor and equipment.”
