TCF512: Overcoming Adversity with Discipline with Sunny Pinhero

Today Tom’s guest on the show is Sunny Pinhero, the owner of Pinhero Construction. From losing everything in 2008, Sunny has rebuilt a well-known commercial construction company, securing 117% growth and has built some of the most remarkable commercial projects on the West Coast.
