This training is presented by AaronPurkeypile. 

Aaron grew up in a blue collar family, with his dad as an HVAC technician and mom as a nurse. 

Out of college, he joined a Big 4 firm and at the end of his busy season, he met with the managing partner and made an impassioned plea to clarify their mission and core values to fight staff leaving.

When nothing changed, he knew that public accounting wasn’t his lifelong calling.

Aaron then spent the next five years leading teams in operations and finance and followed those experiences back to his alma mater to spend the next five years teaching college accounting and finance and coaching the men’s basketball team.

Eventually, he left teaching and coaching to join the leadership team of a locally-owned health & fitness company, and they began implementing EOS. EOS revolutionized the business, and they fell in love with the business again.

Cory Morris

This webinar is presented by Cory Morris of Morris Better Bookkeeping. This is his philosophy:

“Your dollars are the words of your story. The story of your life or your business. I help people see the story they are writing for themselves. Every business owner has their own goals and dreams, but too often they become fears and nightmares. The business takes on a life of its own, and the owner doesn’t know how to get a handle on it, to reign it in. With clarity around the dollars, business owners can feel peace knowing they can weather then next downturn, or say “No” to that bad client. They feel joy again in their business, because they can focus on WHY they started the business. Their passion can once again be the driving force in the business.”

This month, in honor of Veteran’s Day, we’re excited to highlight GROW Nebraska member Veteran Roofing!

Originally founded in 2014 as Veterans 4 Veterans Construction, and rebranded as Veteran Roofing in 2021, this company has spent the last seven years providing high-quality roofing and construction services to customers in central Nebraska. 

But, as one of their commercials proudly tells us, “It’s more than just a roof.”

Founder John Larson comes from a family of extensive community and military service. Having served for 10 years in the Army Reserves — including a combat deployment to the 1991 Gulf War with his Military Police unit — John wanted his company to focus heavily on financially supporting veteran nonprofits and charities. The concept, “veterans serving veterans,” has been the driving mission of the company since its inception. 

“The biggest thing is the mission,” said Larson. “Using our company profits to donate to veteran causes and charities. That’s the focus; that’s been the mission since 2014.”

Larson, who has over 15 years of experience as an insurance adjuster for storm-related damage to people’s homes, found his inspiration from traveling to storm-damaged areas for work. After seeing how much money went into the local economy and construction companies during disaster recovery efforts, he began to dream about the positive effect those funds could have on the veteran community, if even just 1% of it could be put toward charities or nonprofits. Currently, Veteran Roofing & Construction has a goal of donating 10% of its net profits annually to these organizations.

In 2021, John attended the GROW Nebraska Marketech Conference, where he, after discussions with other attendees, realized that it might be a good idea to rebrand his company. GROW Nebraska helped John come to the decision that it would be more beneficial to rebrand and change the name to something more specific to the type of work the company does.

With a focus on roofing and siding, Veterans 4 Veterans Construction was rebranded to Veteran Roofing. 

We’re proud to have Veteran Roofing as part of GROW Nebraska, and continue to be in awe of the company’s dedication to their mission and service to the community. We want to send out a big thank you! to John and the rest of Veteran Roofing — we can’t wait to see what a difference you’ll make!
