Episode 38

May 9, 2023

Discover how UltraShred Technologies began as a brainchild of Margaret Meier’s husband, Walt, and grew into a successful mobile on-site shredding business. Margaret shares their journey of starting back in 2000 with just a truck, a call center, and an outside salesperson knocking on doors, and how they’ve adapted and evolved along with the growing industry.

Creating a thriving business environment is essential for retaining top talent and fostering long-lasting relationships. Margaret opens up about the importance of connecting with like-minded individuals, such as other women-owned shred businesses, and how she and Walt have grown into their respective roles within the company.

Listen in as we uncover their secret to employee retention with the story of their long-time truck driver, Jesus, who has been with UltraShred Technologies for more than fifteen years. (Check out the episode where we interviewed Jesus.)

Finally, Margaret shares her insights on employee management best practices and networking within the industry. We discuss the benefits of getting involved, joining groups like masterminds, and taking the opportunity to learn as much as possible.

Margaret’s journey and advice provide valuable insights for anyone interested in starting and growing a successful information destruction business. Don’t miss this engaging and informative conversation!
