John’s Bio

John Busch IV

“My story is unique just like you, technically I should not have survived my first few years in this business, I refused to do cold calling, knock on doors, and many other things I was told were necessary to “make it” in this business, I was convinced there had to be a better way. A better way that didn’t compromise my integrity, level of service and quality of my work and that lined up well with how I knew I could best serve and help people, there was … there is! So here I am, still in the business … the business of helping people!” – J.B. IV

"Action expresses priorities."
