What’s up everyone?! Chris and I recently sat down on the latest episode of The Jones Zone Podcast where we interviewed two young hustlers. Justin L’Ecuyer and Jimmy Coleman. Justin and Jimmy are new to Charlotte, locating from a small town in Virginia.
They landed a job with Mako Medical, an award winning, a full service medical laboratory based out of Raleigh, North Carolina. Mako Medical primarily serves medical professionals with the need for toxicology reporting, medication management and pharmacogenetic testing.
So how did Jimmy land this sweet job? A job where he gets to help grow the fastest growing company in North Carolina? One word. HUSTLE. Ok two words. Hustle and Linkedin.
Jimmy stated on the podcast that “I didn’t belong in the classroom.” So he got on his grind. He worked for Cutco, the famous knife company. He quickly became a record breaking salesman at 19 years old. After growing his team at Cutco, he took a position at Northwestern Mutual. He reached out to c-level executives. He reached out to his current boss to try to make him a client. The CEO was so impressed with Jimmy’s hustle and his connections (over 13,000 Linkedin connections) that he offered him a job! Drive and ambition can’t be taught in a classroom. You either have it or you don’t. Jimmy and Justin have it.
Jimmy’s friend Justin joined him on his journey. Together, they’re taking over the Charlotte area and get this, THEY’RE 23 YEARS OLD!

This episode is a must listen! Jimmy and Justin are genuine and authentic. Their desire to help and serve others is admirable. Oh, and Justin left the podcast to attend the Governor’s ball. And Jimmy attended a black tie dinner, both networking with CEO’s. Don’t ask what I did that evening (I ate two bowls of Captain Crunch and fell asleep watching The Goonies).
