Many, many people have asked me how I managed to start this company. So many people that I've decided to start telling my story. I am inspired to share this because I want everyone to know that they can create exactly what they intend to create in life, with enough persistence, good will, integrity, and commitment to constantly searching for solutions to problems where both sides win. It's companies like mine that are going to create the good jobs of the future. It would be my greatest reward if my story inspires many of you to go out and create the companies of your dreams.

The birth of a company
I started working on Wisconsin Specialty Protein in 2006. Here we are in 2009 and I've raised $14 M and built the country's first LEED certified dairy manufacturing facility. We will be starting up the plant three weeks from now and will be the only plant in the world that makes nutritional supplement grade organic cow, goat, and sheep whey proteins.
