Talking points- The “Do’s and Don’ts” of Running Your Own Business
Mark The Carpetbagger was started in 1963, by my father Joe Goodman. At 12 years old I was accompanying my dad on jobs and estimates (mostly on the weekends) At 15 I started working full time on weekends. I went to college, and worked full time in the business, eventually developing my own company, Fibermark in 1986, while in college. For a period of time my father and I worked together engaging both of our company names. When my father passed, I then merged the companies to start Fibermark Mark The Carpetbagger – aka FibermarkMTC. Today, FibermarkMTC is a full service business servicing, Los Angeles County Santa Barbara County and Orange County.
