WE’VE TRAVELED THE same roads
Building a business isn’t for the faint of heart. We know. We’ve been there. We have team members who are former business owners or current side-hustlers who know what it takes to navigate the twists and turns in the entrepreneurial journey. You’ll get more than a roadmap. Think of us as a travel guide on your road to success. So, hop on board and enjoy the ride.

Meet Lee — horse rancher, entrepreneur, and financial wiz who knows the ups and downs and sideways of running a business. Lee owned and managed a beer distributorship, and successfully navigated it through some brutally tough times. Oh, by the way, he’s our founder and CEO. And we’re happy he’s back in the saddle leading the charge here at the Fort.
