From Prison to Bankruptcy to Prosperity

April 28, 2020

Episode Overview

Mario spent time in prison. 

But when he tells his story, he glosses right over that fact. 

What turned Mario’s life around wasn’t prison. It was the 2008 recession. 

It all started with a letter from bankruptcy court. 

He was being written off for nearly $300,000 of what he was owed. 

Imagine pacing the floor of your bedroom in a house that you just built,  figuring out how to tell your wife that you may have to file for bankruptcy. 

So what did Mario do? 

“I decided to fight,” he says. 

On this episode of Toolbox for the Trades, Mario Campirano takes us on a journey, and talks with us all about: 

  • How staring down bankruptcy caused him to make a dramatic shift in his mindset

  • How he and his team are coping with the current crisis

  • How he’s inspiring his technicians during an unprecedented time
