Today we have Larry Closs, founder and CEO of MaxHome, on the podcast to talk about how he created a positive culture based on happiness.
Larry Closs is on a mission – to make people happy. He wants his customers to be happy with affordable, long-lasting, and beautiful home upgrades. He wants to his employees to be happy in a rewarding, fulfilling job at an organization that values teamwork. He wants his vendors to be happy that they do business with MaxHome. And he wants his community to be happy, which is why Larry supports dozens of charitable groups including New Orleans Mission, Killroy Home, Ronald McDonald House, and Children’s Hospital. After starting his business in New Orleans in 2002, Larry faced enormous challenges when Hurricane Katrina destroyed his entire stock in 2005. Undeterred, Larry opened a new warehouse 50 yards away, reevaluated his business model to offer a bigger range of products and services, and is now recognized as one of the fastest-growing inner city companies in the United States. Larry plans to continue pursuing his goal of making people happy, which has clearly been a winning formula for his success.
