Aaron used a hiring firm and received a few offers, he ended up going to work for John Deere. He went into position that put him under a former officer that he had reported to in the military. He was put into a management position to manage various areas of the company. Then he went into a professional buyer role. While working fulltime he was working on the business concept that he had in his mind. As the company grew he had the ability to transition based on metrics of where the company was growing to. Once he made the transition he felt there was no going back and so the mindset changes that he was all in and needed to make this happen. He had several mentors that helped him along the way.
