Chris Lalomia is a successful entrepreneur and change leader that has built on his experience working with the largest companies in America to start his own business from scratch.

He left the corporate zoo and ventured into the entrepreneurial wild and started The Trusted Toolbox: Home Repair and Projects in 2008.

His company is focused on processes and training to deliver home renovations and earning customers trust each day. The culture in the company is on continuous improvement and allowing the “artists” in the company to show off their talents as they are set up for success. Chris appears regularly as a guest on WSB95.5’s Home FixIt Show with Dave Baker, All Four Season Home Show, and TrustDaleTV providing advice on home projects for consumers and answering their questions.Chris resides in Johns Creek, GA and when not working on his business, he enjoys cooking, good wine and escaping with his wife, son and daughter to their mountain getaway with his wife.www.safaripodcast.comwww.thehomeserviceinstitute.comwww.zoo2wild.comwww.thetrustedtoolbox.comMichael and Chris talk about the importance of customer service and technology to empower small business ownership.
