Secret 2 My Success Episode 49 -- John Giasullo - Classic Cars of Palm Beach
John Giasullo - Owner of Classic Cars of Palm BeachWebsite: www.classiccarsofpalmbeach.comContact Page: LinkAbout Classic Cars of Palm Beach:  Link Phone: (561) 529-3101Sales: (888)-896-8897About Classic Cars of Palm Beach -- Summary:Natalie and I started this Dealership to be completely unlike the traditional Car Buying experience. We offer over 100 Clean Used Cars.... All priced slightly over wholesale. We do not haggle over price and we are one of the ONLY dealers to intentionally NOT charge a Dealer Fee.For years I have hated the way Car Dealers operate. The greed was always the motivation for dealer policy. I knew that I could build a better mouse trap. After growing a local Independent Used Car Dealership from 200 cars/month to over 5000 cars/month I had finally gotten to a point in my life where I could walk away from the corporate world and build what I had dreamt about for all of those years.Address:Classic Cars of Palm Beach 1612 N Us Highway 1Jupiter, FL 33469Support the show

Kelley Higney. Founder of The Bug Bite ThingWebsite: www.bugbitething.comContact Page: About The Bug Bite Thing: 561-748-5587E-Mail: support@bugbitething.comAbout The  Bug Bite Thing -- Summary:We were completely unprepared for the mosquitoes after moving to Florida from California! My oldest daughter, who was just six-months-old at the time, suffers terribly from mosquito bites and none of the over-the-counter remedies worked. We began avoiding the outdoors. I knew there had to be a better way!I began to research how other countries were combating insect bites and stings and I came across a little known suction tool. I created the Bug Bite Thing brand and began selling the tool at farmers’ markets and bake sales at my daughter’s school. Parents started tracking me down in the school parking lot and said Bug Bite Thing was a game changer for their family and improved their quality of life. I knew that I was on to something! I sold my house and used that money to buy my first big batch of inventory.Bug Bite Thing remains Amazon’s #1 selling product for insect bite relief with over 50,000 reviews! We’re continuing our global expansion and thrilled to be carried by over 30,000 retail locations including CVS Pharmacy, JOANN’s, Rite Aid, The Home Depot, Walgreen and more!Address:BUG BITE THING HEADQUARTERS611 NW Mercantile PlPort Saint Lucie, FL 34986Support the show
