Lessons from Local Leaders:

Chris Barry

Embark on an adventure with us as we sit down with the man behind Barry’s Best Movers, unraveling a tale that began with inflatable bounce houses and evolved into a thriving moving empire. Barry pulls back the curtain on the harsh realities of entrepreneurship, from IRS woes to the true cost of business blunders—like that time a growth experiment left him with a truck stuck in mud. His insights on hiring, risk management, and the wisdom of sticking to your roots will strike a chord with anyone who’s faced the highs and lows of owning a business.

As we turn the pages of our guest’s personal story, he reflects on setting New Year’s intentions and how his childhood experiences shaped his professional journey. He shares the struggle to grow his moving business while navigating clear communication, integrating efficient CRM systems, and making the conscious decision to specialize. The conversation takes a deeper dive into his transformative years, from overcoming behavioral challenges to finding his stride through the discipline of sports and education.

Concluding our session is a foray into the strategies that have propelled Barry’s Best Movers to new heights. Our guest recounts the daunting leap from job security to entrepreneurship, the early days without proper insurance, and the invaluable connections made through B&I networking. We follow his embrace of SEO and personal bonds in business growth, and he offers a peek into the nuanced world of customer feedback—where even negative reviews can spark positive change. Lastly, we join in celebrating the joy of turning a passion into a livelihood, a reminder to all that when you love what you do, it hardly feels like work at all.
