My next guest is John Askew, one of my hero’s!

He’s built over 600 custom homes and knows what it’s like to take some punches along the way.  I’ve never seen such fortitude in a businessman...He’s battled cancer (his wife had it at the same time), going broke, heart attacks, and more.  He’s in the arena like no other.  Tune in to this episode. This man will inspire you!


John was voted the Best Builder in Tarrant County by the Fort Worth Star Telegram Reader’s Choice in 2013, 17 and was voted Best Builder in Fort Worth by the Fort Worth Magazine readers in 2015.  He was also a finalist for the Entrepreneur of Excellence.   He was also awarded First Place in 9 of the 13 categories in the 2008 Kaleidoscope of Homes in Fort Worth. 


He presently employs 19 people and builds between 25 & 30 custom homes a year ranging in price from $500,000 to $3,000,000. Besides building custom homes, the company has also built several commercial buildings in the Parker County area for medical and general office use. 


John built my house back in early 2001 (when I was 29yrs old) and has been a friend of mine ever since….I hope you enjoy the show!
