Jimmy Starbuck


In this episode, I stayed up well past my bedtime to talk dirt with Jimmy Starbuck, owner of Starbuck Excavation in Melbourne, Australia.

If you’re on social media, you’ve likely seen Jimmy’s diggers with the enormous “STARBUCK” logo on the boom and counterweight.

We get into how he went from working in a soap factory to buying an excavator with a car loan, how he’s grown his business, how he’s become vertically integrated, and how COVID is affecting Australian businesses.

Not only is this interview a damn good lesson in entrepreneurship, but Jimmy is pretty damn funny too.

You can find Jimmy online at @starbuckexcavation.
