#19 $330 Million Exit to Living Your Best Life with William Moore, Founder of Doorstep Delivery, Moore Momentum, & Rollins Rentals
#019 Episode 19 of the Silicon Alley Podcast, Nine Figure Exit to Living Your Best Life features William Moore Founder of Doorstep Delivery, Moore Momentum, and Rollins Rentals. Will discusses how being a misfit as a kid led him to develop an entrepreneurial mindset which led him to start a successful student rental business out of college. During the mid-2000s real estate boom, Will quit a lucrative sales job to start Doorstep Delivery. Ultimately the company sold for $330 Million in 2019. Now, Will is taking all of the lessons he learned over the past 25+ years into his new business Moore Momentum. A book and app that focuses on helping people live their best lives. There are 5 cores that Will discusses as being the key to living your best life - mindset, career & finances, relationships, physical health, and emotional health & giving back.  Will's Official Bio: Will Moore graduated with honors from Rollins College. Soon after he created Rollins Rentals with another fellow alumnus - Jay Gaiser - focused on providing quality off-campus college-friendly homes to students from his alma mater. Next came Doorstep Delivery, a restaurant delivery service comparable to Grub Hub or Door Dash. DD quickly became the largest RDS in the South East with 19 branches.  Whether it's real estate, restaurant delivery, or one of the other ventures he's helped pioneer, Will has always had an uncanny knack for capitalizing on trends before they happen. And his newest venture is no exception. He is tapping into the current momentum of the up-and-coming generation finally realizing that there’s no shame in wanting to be their best selves. But this isn’t as much a business venture as it is a movement. His purpose: Help others become the best version of THEMselves so they can pay it forward to help the world become the best version of ITself. As a successful business entrepreneur, Will has discovered that a person's career & finances are just 1/5th of the equation. REAL HAPPINESS involves "firing on all cylinders" in the FIVE CORE areas of your life.
