Facilitator: Sam Cobb, Chief Executive Officer, Real Wood Floors
In January of 2005, Sam Cobb decided to defy the distribution restrictions of the flooring company he worked for at the time by setting out on his own to make flooring as a solo entrepreneur. Real Wood Floors now designs and produces beautiful hardwood floors to meet every purpose, design, and budget and help people find the perfect floor for their homes. From the beginning, Sam wanted Real Wood to be more than a company that simply turned a profit; he wanted a company that would make a lasting impact in the world and have a purpose. While Real Wood Floors is a for-profit company, it is driven by its singular focus to help children around the world without families of their own to move from hopeless to hopeful situations. Many have been adopted into Forever Families; others have received a helping hand in education to open possibilities. From 2005, Real Wood Floors grew from Sam to a staff of 4 employees by 2007. The company currently employs over 30 people.
