Terry Smith, owner of Smitty’s Septic Service, took a slow and calculated approach to growing his pumping business. He started part time, pumping tanks in the evenings after acquiring an existing company. He kept his full-time job at first, then added restroom rentals to his lineup and eventually stepped away from other work to run his business full time. Smitty’s Septic Service now offers grease pumping, drainline cleaning and camera inspection along with septic pumping and portable restrooms.

In this video, Smith discusses growing the business with support from his wife and employee Kevin Hoff, and his favorite part of his work: helping people.
