Construction Chronicles is your podcast home for subcontractor stories.
How does a 20 something with one financed skid steer end up owning multiple successful construction businesses? Ask Luke Payne (real name). He's a weekend warrior with a unique knack for finding new talent – on Instagram.
In part one of two of our interview with Luke Payne, we talked about how he got his start in construction – from lying about his age to operate equipment at 10 years old, to deciding to start Black Iron Dirt, to bankrolling his weekend warrior excavation company by working sales at a power sports retailer, to hiring his first employee using social media.
