“What I loved about working with and filming Mike and Ross is their ability to truly compliment each other as co-founders, each bringing their own value to the venture that makes it what it is,” states Malachi Leopold co-creator of Trep Life. “Their ability to be fully engaged and committed to their company's growth and success, while also having boundaries that allow them to be committed to their families. It's inspiring to see what they did with overcoming the challenges they faced when their growth almost killed the company. That kind of grit and determination - and success - gives viewers the ability to confront and overcome the challenges they face growing their ventures.”
