Our Issues Milwaukee – March 31, 2018 (Part 1)


GOOD MORNING AND WELCOME TO OUR ISSUES MILWAUKEE.
I’M YOUR HOST ANDREA WILLIAMS. OUR FOCUS ON TODAY’S SHOW IS ON OUTSTANDING YOUNG
PEOPLE WHO ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE HERE IN OUR COMMUNITY. MY FIRST GUEST IS NOT ONLY
A GREAT ROLE MODEL, BUT COMES FROM A FAMILY OF ROLE MODELS. CLIFTON PHELPS IS A PARTNER
OF JCP CONSTRUCTION AND PRESIDENT OF EQUITY SUPPLY GROUP. HIS UNIQUE BACKGROUND IN COMMERCIAL
REAL ESTATE, PROPERTY MANAGEMENT AND NON-PROFIT MANAGEMENT GIVES CLIFTON A “BIG PICTURE”
VIEW WHILE MANAGING THE DAY TO DAY BUSINESS WITH HIS TWO BROTHERS JAMES AND JALIN PHELPS.
HOW ARE YOU? HEY, HOW’S IT GOING? I’M GLAD TO HAVE YOU HERE, CLIFTON. AND JCP
CONSTRUCTION WAS ACTUALLY FOUNDED BY YOU AND YOUR BROTHERS IN 2008? YEP, 2008. WOW. TELL US MORE ABOUT THIS BUSINESS. IT WAS FOUNDED UPSTAIRS IN MY PARENTS’ HOUSE
ON 2ND AND LOCUST IN 2008. WE ALL DECIDED TO QUIT OUR REGULAR 9-5S AND JUMP INTO THE
ENTREPRENEUR WORLD MORE ON A LONG-TERM, OR MORE ON A, UM, PERMANENT INSTEAD OF A PART-TIME
AS WE WERE DOING BEFORE. UM WE, IT WAS KIND OF ODD WAKING UP IN THE MORNING AND GOING
TO THE DINING ROOM TABLE FOR OUR MORNING MEETINGS, BECAUSE I STAYED UPSTAIRS FROM MY PARENTS
AT THAT TIME. BUT IT WAS DEFINITELY SOMETHING THAT WE ALL WANTED TO SACRIFICE WITH, OR WE
KNEW THAT WE HAD TO SACRIFICE IN ORDER TO START TO GET OUR NAME OUT THERE. THAT IS PRETTY AMAZING BECAUSE ANYONE THAT
KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT STARTING A BUSINESS OR ENTREPRENEURSHIP KNOWS THAT IT’S NO CAKE WALK.
AND THEN YOU GUYS DECIDED TO DO A CONSTRUCTION BUSINESS, SO THAT’S PRETTY MAJOR IN ITSELF.
EXPLAIN HOW YOU REALLY CAME UP WITH THE CONCEPT OF GOING INTO CONSTRUCTION? WELL, ESSENTIALLY WE’VE ALWAYS BEEN IN CONSTRUCTION.
OUR DAD WAS IN CONSTRUCTION, MEANING, WHAT I MEAN BY THAT IS HE ALWAYS WORKED ON DIFFERENT
HOUSES AND ALWAYS DRAGGED US ALONG TO DIFFERENT PROPERTIES ON SATURDAY. SATURDAYS GAME WAS
ALWAYS TRYING TO HIDE FROM MY DAD BEFORE HE YELLED OUT WHAT HE WANTED US TO DO, SO THAT
WAS THE NAME OF THE GAME. SO I THINK THAT, THAT STARTED THERE FROM, FROM POPS ALWAYS,
HE WAS LIKE A JACK OF ALL TRADES. HE DID EVERYTHING. NOT NECESSARILY 100% RIGHT, BUT IT WAS, IT
WAS, IT WAS DONE RIGHT. BUT THAT KIND OF MOTIVATED US, PLUS GOING TO MILWAUKEE, WE ALL WENT TO
MILWAUKEE TECH, SO WE WERE KIND OF A FOUR-YEAR KIND OF INCORPORATED WITH THE TRADES AROUND
US. SO HAVE, LEAVING THOSE, LEAVING MILWAUKEE TECH WITH A SHOPS CERTIFICATE KIND OF PLANTED
YOU IN THE, THE, THE TRADES FRAME OF MIND. I THINK PRE, AFTER GRADUATION, I THINK WE
ALL KIND OF WENT OUR SEPARATE WAYS AND THEN CAME TOGETHER TO KIND OF FORM A PROPERTY,
UH NOT A PROPERTY MANAGEMENT COMPANY, BUT A, WE WERE ESSENTIALLY KIND OF FLIPPING HOUSES,
KIND OF DIPPING AND DABBING INSIDE OF UH YOU KNOW BUYING A HOUSE, FIXING IT UP, TRYING
TO SELL IT, BUT WE SAW THE MARKET WAS GOING TO SLOW DOWN, SO WE KNEW WE DEFINITELY NEEDED
TO MAKE A CHANGE INSIDE OF A MORE SUSTAINABLE MARKET. WOW. I MEAN THAT IS AMAZING BECAUSE REALLY
WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT, A LOT OF DADS DO THAT. YOU KNOW? COME ON, I’M ABOUT TO GO PAINT
THIS HOUSE, PUT YOURSELF TO GOOD USE, OR WHATEVER THE CASE MAY BE, SOME DRYWALLING. BUT YOU
GUYS WERE LEARNING ALONG THE WAY, AND LOOK AT YOU NOW. AND WHAT DOES YOUR DAD THINK? WELL YOU KNOW WHAT? UNFORTUNATELY MY POPS
PASSED AWAY ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO. I’M SORRY TO HEAR THAT. THAT’S OKAY. BUT HE DID SEE THE SUCCESS THAT YOU WERE ABLE
TO. HE DID, HE DID START TO SEE THE SUCCESS THAT
WE WERE TRYING TO MAKE. AND UH ONE OF THE LAST TIMES I SAW, I TOOK MY DAD TO THE BUILDING
WE’RE AT NOW, CAUSE WE WERE ONLY THERE TWO YEARS, AND I WAS EXCITED ABOUT KIND OF SHOWING
HIM THE OUTSIDE, LIKE HEY WE’RE ABOUT TO BUY THIS BUILDING. IT WAS RIGHT ON KING DRIVE,
AND HE WAS LIKE, HOW MUCH IS THAT GOING TO COST? MY DAD WAS CHEAP. FRUGAL. FRUGAL. BUT I LIKE TO CALL IT CHEAP. YOU KNOW,
WE DIDN’T HAVE MC UH, WE DIDN’T HAVE MCDONALD’S, WE HAD MCPHELP’S GROWING UP. THAT’S SO FUNNY! BUT HE WAS DEFINITELY PROUD. GREAT MEMORIES, RIGHT? YEAH, DEFINITELY. SO UH WHICH LEADS TO MY NEXT QUESTION, OBVIOUSLY
YOUR FATHER SERVED AS A GREAT ROLE MODEL. YEP. WHO WERE SOME OF THE OTHER ROLE MODELS THAT
YOU HAD GROWING UP IN THE COMMUNITY? I WANT TO SAY GROWING UP UP TO AGE 18 I WAS
DEFINITELY, MY PARENTS, MY MOM AND MY DAD OBVIOUSLY. BUT UH, BUT OTHER PEOPLE, OTHER
ROLE MODELS WE HAD, UM YOU KNOW ONCE I GOT CLOSER TO AGE 18, CAUSE THERE WASN’T A LOT
OF ROLE MODELS ON 2ND AND LOCUST, WERE I WOULD SAY PEOPLE LIKE EVE HALL AND FAITH KOLIS AND
FRANK CUMBERBATCH. THESE ARE PEOPLE I MET WHEN I WAS AROUND 18 AND 19 YEARS OLD TO KIND
OF PUSH ME FORWARD GOING OFF TO SCHOOL AND MAKING THOSE RIGHT DECISIONS. AND WHERE DID YOU ATTEND COLLEGE? TUSKEGEE UNIVERSITY. ALL RIGHT, I LOVE THAT. HBCU GRADUATE. YEP. AND I’M SURE ALL OF THE PEOPLE THAT YOU’VE
NAMED ARE EQUALLY AS PROUD JUST WATCHING YOU OVER THE YEARS CONTINUE TO NOT ONLY GROW INTO
THE MAN THAT YOU ARE, BUT REALLY BE A ROLE MODEL FOR SO MANY OTHER YOUNG PEOPLE IN OUR
COMMUNITY. YEAH, THEY PLAYED, PLAYED A, UM PLAYED A GREAT
PART IN KIND OF MAKING ME WHO I AM TODAY, SO UM THAT PARENT I AM TODAY AND SO FORTH. THAT’S AWESOME. MY DAUGHTER GOES TO TUSKEGEE TOO BY THE WAY. OH MY GOSH, THAT’S WONDERFUL. SHE’S A FRESHMAN. SO THAT MEANS YOU WERE A GREAT ROLE MODEL
THERE TOO! ACCORDING TO FORBES, THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY IS SHOWING CONTINUED STRONG GROWTH
ACROSS THE COUNTRY. IN FACT, IT SAID AS OF 2016, CONSTRUCTION IS THE FASTEST GROWING
SMALL BUSINESS SECTOR, GENERATING DOUBLE DIGIT GROWTH AND CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF, MANY
OF THE SUCCESSFUL CONSTRUCTION FIRMS ARE BLACK OWNED. WOULD YOU AGREE? I WOULD, I WOULD, I WOULD AGREE, BUT I WOULD
ALSO SAY IT DEPENDS ON THE AREA, RIGHT? OF COURSE, YEAH. OBVIOUSLY AND AREA LIKE ATLANTA, UM, IS GOING
TO HAVE A LOT MORE. D.C. D.C. AND HOUSTON ARE GOING TO HAVE A LOT MORE
AFRICAN-AMERICAN FIRMS THAN I WOULD SAY WISCONSIN OR AN IOWA OR EVEN A DETROIT FOR THAT MATTER.
BUT YOU KNOW, FROM, FROM WHEN WE STARTED TO WHERE WE ARE NOW, WE DO SEE A LOT OF OTHER
FIRMS. AS A MATTER OF FACT, TWO SMALLER CONSTRUCTION FIRMS WERE ONCE OUR EMPLOYEES. WE KIND OF
HELPED OUT TO KIND OF BUILD THEIR, AH TO BUILD THEIR CONSTRUCTION, AH THEIR CONSTRUCTION
FIRM RIGHT NOW. SO IT HAS GROWN. SO IT’S BETTER THAN BEING ESSENTIALLY ONLY ONE OF THREE AFRICAN-AMERICAN
LARGER CONSTRUCTION FIRMS IN MILWAUKEE, SO. YEAH. SO WHAT IS EVEN MORE AWESOME IS THAT
YOU GUYS ARE WILLING TO SPREAD THE KNOWLEDGE AND HELP OUT THOSE WHO ARE ALSO LOOKING TO
DO THINGS AS WELL. YEAH, WE’RE PROBABLY GOING TO TRAIN OUR COMPETITION
ONE DAY, WHICH IS FINE BECAUSE IT NEEDS TO BE THERE. NO ONE NEEDS TO BE THE ONLY PERSON
THERE, ESPECIALLY BEING, ESPECIALLY IN THE CITY OF MILWAUKEE THAT’S 40-42% AFRICAN-AMERICAN.
YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE. AND, AND YOU KNOW, IT’S, IT’S IMPORTANT TO SPREAD ENTREPRENEURSHIP
AS WELL. YEAH, I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU. AND I’M SEEING
YOUR JACKET SAYS EQUITY SUPPLY GROUP. RIGHT. AND THIS IS ANOTHER BUSINESS THAT YOU’VE PUT
UNDER THE UMBRELLA OF JCP CONSTRUCTION. CORRECT. IT’S A STAND ALONE, YES CORRECT,
IT’S A STAND ALONE BUSINESS. I’M ACTUALLY THE PRESIDENT OF THAT COMPANY, SO BUT I’M
NOT ON THE DAY-TO-DAY ANYMORE AT JCP CONSTRUCTION. UM,I’M FULL-TIME AT EQUITY SUPPLY GROUP WHERE
WE SELL TRAFFIC CODING MATERIALS, I’M SORRY, WATER PROOFING AT TRACK CODING MATERIALS AND
OTHER CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS. WE SAW THAT THERE WAS A NICHE IN THE INDUSTRY AND WE KIND
OF WENT FOR IT. WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE KIND OF, MY BROTHERS JAMES AND JALIN AND
MYSELF WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE KIND OF DIVERSIFIED AS AH, IF AH CONSTRUCTION WOULD
GET SLOW, WE COULD FIND OTHER WAY, OTHER WAYS OF REVENUE. SO YOU’RE PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT’S GOING
ON IN THE BUSINESS. CORRECT. AND CAPITALIZING OFF OF, IT’S KIND OF LIKE
LOOKING AT THE STOCK MARKET EVERY DAY AND KNOWING WHAT’S, WHAT’S HOT AND WHAT’S NOT. CORRECT. AND I, AND I GOTTA GIVE MY OLDER
BROTHER JAMES A LITTLE CREDIT FOR THE SUPPLY COMPANY. I THOUGHT IT WAS PRETTY CHEESE, PRETTY
CHEESY WHEN HE FIRST MENTIONED IT BUT IT ACTUALLY KIND OF FLOW, AH HAS GOOD CASH FLOW. I LOVE THAT. SO TALK ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE,
ESPECIALLY YOU’VE TALKED ABOUT YOUR FATHER AND YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE GREAT MEMORIES OF EVERYTHING
HE’S INSTILLED INTO YOU AND YOUR BROTHERS. TALK ABOUT BUILDING THIS BUSINESS AND AH THE
LEGACY USING YOUR FATHER’S NAME. WELL, UM, THAT’S A GOOD QUESTION. SO JCP,
SO LET ME JUST BREAK IT DOWN, JCP CONSTRUCTION IS ESSENTIALLY JAMES AND JALIN, MY YOUNGER
AND OLDER BROTHER, AND THEN CLIFTON AND THEN OUR LAST NAME PHELPS. SO THAT LEGACY, LEAVING
THAT LEGACY THERE IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR US BECAUSE WE WANT TO HAVE A LEGACY FOR OUR KIDS,
UM, ONCE THEY GET OLDER THEY CAN KIND OF POINT TO PROJECTS THAT WE’VE DONE, OR THE BUILDING
THAT WE HAVE, OR OTHER BUILDINGS THAT WE HAVE PURCHASED THROUGHOUT THE CITY AND UNDERSTAND
THAT OUR NAME KIND OF STANDS ALONE. YEAH. AND THEN ALSO, WHAT’S I THINK MORE IMPORTANT
THAN JUST HAVING A NAME THERE IS NOT HAVING A NAME THAT’S GOOD FOR JUST YOU KNOW THIS
TIME SPAN, BUT HAVING A NAME THAT LASTS KIND OF THROUGHOUT SO PEOPLE CAN, SO KIND OF BUILD
UP A DYNASTY. MM-HMM. AND YOU TALKED ABOUT BUILDINGS THAT
YOU’VE WORKED ON. YEP. SO OFF THE TOP THERE’S A LONG LIST, BUT SOME
FAMILIAR SITES AROUND THE CITY THAT YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN, THE NEW BUCKS ARENA. YEP. AH, THE MSEO SOCCER AND PARKING FACILITY,
AND THEN THE MEDICAL COLLEGE OF WISCONSIN YOU’VE DONE WORK THERE AS WELL. SO WHEN YOU’RE
DRIVING AROUND THE CITY AND YOU KNOW YOU’RE LOOKING AROUND, WHAT PARTICULAR SITE OR BUILDING
WOULD YOU SAY GIVES YOU THE MOST PRIDE THAT YOU’VE WORKED ON? WELL, I WOULD SAY THERE’S A COUPLE. OKAY. SO. THAT’S FAIR. AND UM I WOULD SAY PROBABLY THE MOST, ONE
OF THE ONE OF THE MOST PROUD BUILDINGS I WOULD SAY THAT MY BROTHER JAMES WOULD PROBABLY SAY
WOULD BE THE PETE’S RIGHT NOW. OKAY. THE MARKET. BECAUSE THAT SURVIVED, THAT NOT ONLY HELPED
WITH THE FOOD DROUGHT, IT HELPED BY BRINGING A SPOT THAT WAS ESSENTIALLY DEAD FOR THE LAST
10 YEARS. AND THAT WAS WITH THE HELP OF KALEN HAYWOOD FROM THE HAYWOOD GROUP. YEAH, AND HE HAS BEEN ON THE SHOW. HE HAS? YEAH. IT’S WONDERFUL. AND THE OTHER PROJECTS I WOULD SAY WOULD BE
PROBABLY BADER, AND BADER’S RAN BY MY UH, MY UH BROTHER JALIN. BADER FOUND, BADER PHILANTHROPIES
THAT MOVED ON, UM UH UM, CONCORDIA AND KING DRIVE. AND I THINK THAT THAT’S AN INVESTMENT
IN THE COMMUNITY THAT’S IMPORTANT. TAKE YOUR ORGANIZATION FROM THE THIRD, FROM THE THIRD
WARD OVER TO KING DRIVE, I THINK THAT’S SAYING A LOT FOR THAT ORGANIZATION IN TERMS OF PUTTING
YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS. TAKING A BUILDING THAT COULD HAVE EASILY GOTTEN TORN DOWN BY
THE CITY LIKE SO MANY OTHER OF THOSE BUILDINGS LIKE QF&H OVER THERE. THEY GOT TORE DOWN.
AND ACTUALLY PUTTING CLOSE TO $12 MILLION INTO THAT BUILDING IS AN INVESTMENT IN THAT
COMMUNITY. THAT WAS WALK, THAT’S WALKING DISTANCE FROM WHERE WE GREW UP, SO. I LOVE THAT. AND YOU ALSO MENTIONED THAT YOUR
OFFICES ARE ALSO ON KING DRIVE. ALSO ON KING DRIVE. SO THERE’S A LOT OF SYMBOLISM THERE. YEP. BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT BRONZEVILLE JUST HOLDS
A HISTORY OF PEOPLE HAVING THEIR OWN, AND WORKING FOR THEIR OWN, AND PASSING IN THAT
LEGACY. I AGREE. AND SO YOU FIT RIGHT IN. YEAH, THAT’S RIGHT. IT’S EASY. EVERYTHING’S
RIGHT ON KING DRIVE, SO IT’S, IT’S EASY TO, IT’S EASY TO POINT OUT THE PROJECTS THAT ARE
ACTUALLY MAKING THE PROGRESS. THAT’S AWESOME. TALK ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE
OF PROVIDING JOBS TO PEOPLE HERE IN THE CITY WHEN IT COMES TO CONSTRUCTION. IT’S VERY IMPORTANT. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE,
WE’RE A UNION SHOP SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT SOMEONE ACTUALLY MAKING ON A CHECK $22 AN HOUR AT
THE LOWEST MARK, AND UP TO $28 OR $36 AN HOUR, NOW THAT’S A WAGE THAT CAN ACTUALLY FEED A
FAMILY. THAT’S NOT HAVING A JOB FAIR AND ACTUALLY HIRING SOMEONE THAT MAKES $12 AN HOUR, YOU
KNOW, THAT CAN’T REALLY, YOU KNOW, CAN’T REALLY UH PAY FOR EVERYTHING, UH THE NECESSITIES
OF LIFE, BUT THE FACT THAT WE’RE ABLE TO GRAB PEOPLE FROM OUR COMMUNITY, PUT THEM ON PROJECTS
THAT WE’RE CURRENTLY WORKING ON IN THE COMMUNITY, AND EVEN OUTSIDE THE COMMUNITY AND DOWNTOWN,
THAT’S BIG. YEAH. I MEAN THESE PEOPLE MAKE SOMETIME, SOME SORT,
SOMETIMES NORTH OF $80,000, PLUS PENSION BENEFITS, PLUS HEALTH INSURANCE. THAT, THAT’S A LOT.
YOU CAN BUY A HOUSE. I THINK THAT SENDS A MESSAGE. THAT’S SELF-SUSTAINING. YEAH, YEAH. THAT SENDS A MESSAGE THAT IF SOMEBODY’S
THINKING ABOUT WHAT TO GO INTO. YEAH. CONSTRUCTION IS NOT A BAD CHOICE. YEP. AND WHAT BROUGHT MY ATTENTION TO YOU IN BRINGING
YOU HERE TODAY IS THE MILWAUKEE BUSINESS JOURNAL. THEY PUT OUT AN ANNUAL LIST OF 40 UNDER 40.
AND IT’S THEIR WAY OF RECOGNIZING MILWAUKEE AREA LEADERS UNDER THE AGE OF 40 THAT ARE
MAKING A HUGE IMPACT IN THEIR FIELD OF BUSINESS. I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE SAYING, WOW HE’S
UNDER 40 AND DOING ALL OF THESE THINGS. UH HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN YOU WERE NOTIFIED ABOUT
GETTING THIS AWARD? I WAS EXCITED. I WAS, I WAS EXCITED BECAUSE
IT A, IT’S ESSENTIALLY A, WHEN YOU GET THAT AWARD IT’S AN ESSENTIAL SIGN THAT YOU’RE ACTUALLY
DOING SOMETHING GOOD, SO I THINK THAT GETTING IN THAT AWARD, OR GETTING THAT NOTIFICATION,
I WAS SUPER EXCITED, OR COURSE. I WAS YOU KNOW. NEEDLESS TO SAY. YEAH, YEAH, I’LL SAY. AND IT’S A GREAT NETWORKING OPPORTUNITY BECAUSE
YOU HAVE 39 OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE ALSO AWARDED WHO ARE WORKING IN EVERY DIFFERENT SECTOR
AROUND THE CITY AND SURROUNDING AREAS, AND YOU PRETTY MUCH GET AND OPPORTUNITY TO KIND
OF RUB ELBOWS AND MEET SOME PEOPLE WHO YOU COULD WORK WITH IN THE FUTURE. YEAH. I MEET SOME GREAT PEOPLE. UM, I WENT
TO A PNC EVENT THE OTHER DAY AND I RAN INTO ONE OF MY FELLOW 40 UNDER, MY, THE NAME ESCAPES
ME, BUT THIS IS IN A DIFFERENT NETWORK THAT I’M NOT EVEN USED TO, SO IT KIND OF BRANCHES
YOU OUT AND YOU KNOW, THESE ARE YOUR CLASSMATES. NOW IT’S MY UNDERSTANDING THAT YOU GUYS DID
A PHOTO SHOOT AT THE WISCONSIN HUMANE SOCIETY, WHICH I THOUGHT WAS AWESOME. SO I SAW THIS
PICTURE OF YOU HANGING OUT WITH A COOL CAT, SO TO SPEAK. YEAH. GO ADOPT THAT CAT. OH, I LOVE IT. WHAT WAS THAT LIKE? IT WAS FUN. IT WAS FUN, IT WAS FOR A GOOD
CAUSE FOR THE HUMANE SOCIETY, BUT I’LL NEVER GET USED TO A CAT WALKING AROUND MY SHOULDER
BLADES. IT’S LIKE YOU NEVER JUST. SO YOUR KIDS WEREN’T LIKE, DADDY, CAN WE HAVE
HIM? ABSOLUTELY, NO. WE HAVE TWO DOGS ALREADY. OKAY, YEAH. TWO DOGS AND AN IGUANA, BY THE WAY. WOW. OKAY. WE HAVE THE IGUANA TOO. THE LAST THING I WANTED TO BRING UP IS THE
FACT THAT YOU ARE NOT ONLY PROVIDING JOBS THROUGH JCP CONSTRUCTION WITH YOUR BROTHERS
TO THE COMMUNITY, BUT YOU ALSO WORK ON SEVERAL BOARDS. YOU’RE ON THE BOARD FOR THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN
CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND THE RUNNING REBELS, AND MLK EDC. AND WHAT’S MOST IMPORTANT, AS
WE WRAP UP, IS THE FACT THAT YOU GUYS HAVE WORKED WITH MPS IN THE PAST IN HELPING REALLY
GET KIDS HANDS ON EXPERIENCE WHEN DEALING WITH CONSTRUCTION AND ENGINEERING, SO THAT’S
AWESOME IN ITSELF. YEAH. I THINK THAT’S WHAT WE’RE HERE FOR.
IF WE DON’T GIVE IT BACK, ALL THOSE BOARDS THAT YOU MENTIONED ACTUALLY GIVE IT BACK AND
ACTUALLY HELP THE COMMUNITY. SO THEY’RE WORKING BOARDS AND I THINK THAT’S IMPORTANT, ESPECIALLY
WITH THE MPS KIDS. YEAH, WELL CONGRATULATIONS. THANK YOU. ON ALL OF YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS THAT YOU’VE
ACHIEVED UNDER THE AGE OF 40, WHICH IN MY OPINION MEANS THERE’S A SIGN OF MUCH GREATER
THINGS TO COME. AND CONTINUED SUCCESS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. OKAY. WELL THANK YOU. I APPRECIATE YOU GUYS,
OR UH APPRECIATE YOU HAVING ME. I’M SORRY. IT’S BEEN A PLEASURE. THANK YOU. CLIFTON PHELPS
IS A PARTNER OF JCP CONSTRUCTION AND PRESIDENT OF EQUITY SUPPLY GROUP. WHEN WE RETURN TO OUR ISSUES MILWAUKEE, WE’LL
MEET A YOUNG MAN WHO IS A STUDENT AT MARQUETTE UNIVERSITY AND HAS ALREADY CREATED HIS OWN
CLOTHING LINE. WE’LL MEET AUSTIN MOUTRY AND FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE POISE MOVEMENT
RIGHT AFTER THIS.
