John Lee Hoich Professional Resume

Starting a business as a teenager with one lawnmower and enough determination for a dozen men, John Lee Hoich built a career that made him a millionaire by the time he was 30. John gives God his Savior and Lord Jesus Christ thanks everyday for his divine success in everything he has accomplished.

His businesses have ranged from grounds maintenance contracts at U.S. government facilities to land development and ownership of a hotel, office buildings, industrial buildings, apartment complexes, shopping centers, assisted living facilities, a 9-hole golf course, a fifty-year contract for a military housing development, and numerous strategic business investments.

John is a public speaker with a compelling rags-to-riches story. In his book From The Ground Up, he details his entrepreneurial career. His thoughts on business are generous, for he tells us of the lessons that he has learned and gives us the formula for us to succeed. Pick up your copy today from our online store.
