Aaron took time out of his incredibly full schedule to talk to us about his start in the pawn shop business and how he turned a small construction business into one of the largest in his area. Nuggets of experience and wisdom are scattered throughout, which Aaron has accumulated in over 35 years of experience in business and family, overseeing the growth and sale of several companies in different industries. He had a lot to say about the keys to doing business, the importance of building genuine interpersonal relationships, and the necessity of planning one’s next steps.
Aaron studied under financial guru Dave Ramsey for over 19 years, and has seen substantial growth under spiritual advisors David Landrith and Bob Warren.

About the Podcast
I sat down with Aaron for a 33minute conversation that covered a ton of subjects, ranging from his start in the pawn shop business to his managerial involvement in the construction business. Nuggets of experience and wisdom are scattered throughout, which Aaron has accumulated in over 35 years of experience in business and family, overseeing the growth and sale of several companies in different industries.
He had a lot to say about the keys to doing business, the importance of building genuine interpersonal relationships, and the necessity of planning one’s next steps. He shared personal insights into his early and current motivations, placing particular importance on knowing the difference between success and significance. We also covered what Aaron considered to be his biggest failure, which may come as a surprise, since it is attached to his greatest success.
After speaking with Aaron, it should come as no surprise that virtually everyone he comes in contact with endorses his integrity, his truthfulness, and his wisdom without reservation. He also speaks on how he got into mentorship, how much he values being mentored himself, and the importance of having strong support in your corner professionally and personally. Finally, he shared with us his vision for the future of View From the Top, and how he’d like to see his post-retirement passion grow to become an international resource for aspiring entrepreneurs.
As a bonus, Aaron granted viewers of the podcast three documents from his website free of charge, each of which normally costs $47. The documents can be found here: viewfromthetop.com/nicheinterview.
