Don is part of a little known group of small business owners you’ve probably never heard of.
We don’t rely on venture capital or have delusions of going public. In fact, our smallness and diversity make up the charm and character of every town and city. We have products and services that we know enhance people’s lives.
Because we’re fighting against the big brands, corporations with literally unlimited budgets, we have to do things smarter. We don’t have financial safety nets. Every dollar we risk is our own money. We have to be profitable from day one. So how do we do that? How is that even possible?
MBAs and college textbooks tell you what we are doing is impossible. Yet it’s happening every day. It’s happening through the art and science of Dark Horse Systems.
We are Dark Horses.
We are just one system away.
