Matt Grosshandler -- Make Your Own Destiny 

Matt Grosshandler is the kind of man that exemplifies Babe Ruth's quote, "It's hard to beat a person who never gives up." He's managed to go faster and further in three years of his own business that most business people aspire to go over twenty years. When you meet Grosshandler he'll tell you there's no luck involved in his success just plain hard work. In 2010, he started Bald Hill Builders, which has rapidly become a contender in the highly competitive New England construction industry. He has built an 18 person 'shop' that will bill nearly 34 million this year without raising any outside capital.

You might say it was Matt Grosshandler's destiny to become an entrepreneur. Ever since he was a young boy he's had some sort of business on the side. He zipped through an undergraduate degree in three years while running his own custom carpentry business.

Grosshandler will tell you that the takeaway he got from participating in the JVS/CJP Entrepreneurship Training Program was that every goal is achievable if you break it down into small manageable steps. His advice for future entrepreneurs is, "be prepared to give it whatever it takes, as being in business is not for the faint of heart."

Despite his phenomenal success - he still feels very appreciative to have had the mentors that he did. His father, grandfather and great-grandfather were all in the trades. After college he joined forces with his father for a short while before going on to join BBL Construction Services and later Suffolk Construction. He generously credits them with teaching him to refine his focus and having helped him fine tune his flyer button
