On this week's episode of Just Go Grind, hear from Joel Milne, the CEO of RepairSmith, the first and only full-service mobile delivery solution for car repair and maintenance, launched in Los Angeles in 2018.


Key Takeaways:

  • RepairSmith defines its company culture by what motivates people most: mastery, autonomy and purpose.
  • RepairSmith made the decision to hire all its car technicians as employees, rather than source from a marketplace, to ensure better quality of service.

The willingness to pay the delivery fee is still pretty darn low. Amazon has ruined that for for the world.
