Introduction To Joe (that's me!)
So a quick introduction…
My name is Joe Migrala and I own H&J Fence Supply. I have a wife, two children, and two spoiled dogs. In my off time I’m still always thinking about fence and business. I started surfing 2 years ago and it’s my absolute favorite hobby.
How I got started in fencing:
While I was working for my uncle at one of his McDonald’s we had a rogue tornado come through the area and damage one post and one section of fence. After getting quotes I asked my uncle if I could do it instead. I watched some YouTube videos and in short time the fence was fixed. From there I advertised on Craigslist and within 6 months I quit my job and went fencing full time.
A little about my fence company:
I started my fence company back in 2015 and just sold it in 2023 to focus on my new company. During my 7 years we steadily grew to $2M in yearly sales and had built several programs to automate a lot of our processes.
My new fence supply company:
I formed H&J Fence Supply in May of 2022. I had originally started bringing in truckloads of vinyl for my own company but soon after I started supplying my subcontractors. From there I started to supply to other contractors and realized I enjoyed it much more than the installation side. So in December of 2022 I decided to sell my business so I could focus full time on the supply side. It has a different set of challenges but I really love it because I get to build long term relationships with our customers.
