Matt Khouri

Owner, Pool Pals Inc.

Imagine telling your parents that you’re quitting school to clean pools? It might sound crazy but it paid off for Matt Khouri in a big way. He’s been successfully running Pool Pals for 17 years. In that time frame he’ grown it from a few clients to on the verge of turning it into a franchise.

We spoke to Matt about how he started the business, what it means to “let go,” and what work/life balance looks like when you’re running a seasonal business.
