This is a dedication to Jordan Guernsey may he rest in peace.

 

I released this interview again today because Jordan embodied gratitude and appreciation even when times were tough. It is only fitting to release on Thanksgiving.

 

The following description was from the original post with Jordan:


Jordan was founder of Molding Box a logistics and transportation company that has grown to a multimillion dollar a year company and has gained several recognitions in the Inc 500. He started it in his moms basement in 2006.

He was nominated twice for Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the year & was the youngest person on Utah Business list of 40 under 40 .

Listen to this interview to hear how Jordan handled In April 2012 when he was diagnosed with stage 3 Melanoma and how he looks at Cancer as the best thing that has ever happened to him.

 

Hear Jordan’s journey and the hard decision he had to make in his life and business after getting sick.

Molding Box was founded in November of 2005, as a simplified outsourcing solution. Providing its customers with flexible printing solutions, scalable shipping and handling services, as well as, disc media production.

It all started when Jordan Guernsey decided to branch out from a previous employer. He moved back into his parent’s house and set up shop in their basement, armed with only a credit card and a blessing. Once Molding Box started racking up clients, the company faced a new problem- financing a growing business. Trusting his idea would take off, Jordan put everything he had, a Visa with a $12,000 limit and $500 in cash into his company. His gamble paid off, within the first year Molding Box had eight employees all working in his parent’s basement. Molding Box started to take on a life of its own.

After completing his Finance degree at Cal State Northridge, Jason Boyce gained valuable management experience as a commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps.  After leaving the Marine Corps, Jason worked as a sales person at Johnson & Johnson.  In 2002, Jason co-founded Dazadi.com and has been its CEO since 2004.

Founded by four brothers - Ari, Jason, Elan and Josh - in May of 2002, Dazadi.com began as a modest basketball hoop internet retailer. Born around the family dinner table and initially headquartered in Ari's small downtown L. A. apartment, Dazadi.com now offers over 5,000 products, an extremely high level of customer service, and some of the finest home recreational goods brands in the world.

 

As natives of Los Angeles, the boys loved playing outdoors almost year-round and shared some of their most memorable bonding experiences on the court. Quality family time often meant an afternoon shooting hoops or taking in a game together. So when Ari first conceived of selling hoops online, he envisioned a company that would reflect his passion for basketball. Jason, then completing his last months as a Marine, found himself immediately thrilled by the idea and was the first of the four to join Ari in his pursuit. They enlisted the help of talented youngest brother Josh. Josh, then only a junior in high school, designed and built the very first website, SuperDuperHoops.com. Shortly after the launch of SuperDuperHoops.com, Elan left his position at Nike to join the family business and expanded the company's focus to include a Game Table category. With a widening selection, and the combined passion and expertise of its four founders, Dazadi.com took shape. The unique name (pronounced DAZZ-uh-dee) is a combination of the word "audacity" (meaning bold or daring) and "tzadik" (the Hebrew word for a righteous person).

 

The Dazadi story continues to be about family. The company is still helmed by Jason, Elan and Josh. These days, Dazadi offers much more than just basketball hoops and game tables. We offer an incredible selection of expertly curated products from bicycles to swimming pools; from treadmills to jukeboxes. We've got you covered from the front yard to the back. As the official Home of Awesome, our goal is to make your yard, game room or family dinner table the place where great memories are shared.
