This week, we’re joined by True Friends Moving Company Owner Chris Knowles. We discuss leaving his Fortune 500 company to be an entrepreneur, dreaming big, and scaling a business.

About our Guest: Originally from Georgia, Chris worked for a local moving company while still in high-school one summer and always aspired to own his own one day. While pursuing a bachelor’s in Business Management he began a career in corporate sales at a Fortune 500 company, but always remembered his business ownership dream. After much soul searching, he realized that building his own company and brand was more of a passion than building someone else’s, and the rest is history. However, knowing how to do some moving one summer, and running a business was two totally separate skills, so he just learned as he went, which came with a lot of trial and error. Today, True Friends is a power house in the area and has a huge presence in the Nashville market, helping them to not only win Best of Nashville year over year, but also a Top 50 business in Nashville from the Inc 5000. These days, Chris is continuing to keep the brand growing strong, while also giving back to the local community thru local charity partnerships like Safe Haven, Men of Valor and Live Love Nashville. With their proven concept and very marketable brand, franchising is next on the horizon for Chris and TFM, as helping other likeminded entrepreneurs grow is a new passion that he is looking forward to going after. Outside of the business, he just celebrated his 15 year anniversary and has 2 awesome daughters and spends any extra time dedicated to family.
