The Brothers That Just Do Gutters


Our Entrepreneurs Building Great Businesses videos are about entrepreneurship, the path that some of our clients have taken, their story and most important lessons that we can all share and benefit from one another. Well, I am pleased to share with you the story behind The Brothers that just do Gutters and if you haven’t seen the video they definitely have a compelling story.

Who Are the Brothers?

The Brothers That Just Do GuttersWell to be precise, “The Brothers that just do Gutters”, are Ryan Parsons and Ken Parsons and I am glad that we have had the opportunity to work together.

What Is Their Business?

It is residential gutter installation.

What Is Their Story?

They have a great story and one that many of us can appreciate. Because it is a story of constantly adapting, learning, building business systems and using setbacks or “perceived” failures and turning them into strengths. Some highlights from the video, for me, include:

Some of My Favorite Quotes from the Video

“…I took my degree and threw it in the gutter…” (Video, 1:21)
“…If you chase after too many rabbits you can end up with none…” (Video, 5:22)
“…I am still looking for a real job…” (Video, 1:47)
“…stay small, keep it all…[is a lie]” (Video, 11:50)

During the past year, I have had to benefit of working with both Ryan and Ken in the development of The Brothers that just do Gutters franchise system. Their FDD has been registered and they are on track for their national franchise rollout. Best of all they have the right mindset for franchising which for Ken requires a win-win relationship with their franchisees and is all about building relationships with franchisees who are interested in “building a business and not buying a job”.

All great stuff!
