Episode Description

Today, I welcome my incredible guest Laura Spaulding, to the podcast.
I am honored to have the opportunity to learn from someone with tenacity, grit, determination, and business savvy.Laura Spaulding, founder, and CEO of Spaulding Decon is a former law enforcement officer who has evolved her business from a solo operation to a nationwide franchise specializing in crime scene, hoarding, and meth-lab cleanup. As a result, Spaulding Decon topped the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 crime-scene cleaning category in 2022. In this episode, Laura shares her journey from humble beginnings as a woman-led startup. Today, Spaulding Decon is scaling rapidly with 20 to 30 new franchises a year, has added real estate acquisitions to its business model, and has millions of followers on social media. Laura’s path to success would have defeated many. However, she did not allow her obstacles to set her back in life; instead, she transmuted her traumatic experiences and built a successful life for herself and others. In this podcast conversation, we talk about her career in law enforcement that led her to start a business specializing in crime scene, hoarding, and meth-lab cleanup. The rapid expansion of Spaulding Decon as a franchise across the U.S, real estate, lessons learned, starting a cleanup business, facing bigotry or discrimination, and so much more.It has been my pleasure to have Laura join me, and I know, my listeners, that you will enjoy the episode.
