Despite the success that he generated, the road wasn’t always smooth for Two Lewis. “Some of the biggest challenges I’ve had to get through was learning that all friends aren’t good for business. Learning how to separate the two is key,” he explained, “Also, learning how to place value in myself and services because if I could, I would help the world for free. I had to make logical decisions to make sure I have enough to run the business and make sure my employees are taken care of while also making sure I grow enough to be financially stable so I can eventually reach my main goal of becoming the best husband and father this world has seen.”
