Upsurge covers how after years of business growth and two acquisitions Tab found that a few poor business decisions would have colossal outcomes that threatened his once-strong business. The outcome was debt of $750,000 owed to 18 individuals, companies, and government. One was a hard money lender that was relentless. In despair and disbelief, he plummeted into depression. Vulnerability, doubt, and fear ruled his life. While discussing the business failures with colleagues most gave the same advice: shut your doors and walk away. He had allowed his company to fall into peril. Closing the doors was not an option. Over the next three-plus years he had one goal: take his wrecked business and personal failures and make them both successful again.
