Our local entrepreneur hero, Bob Parsons, founded Go Daddy in 1997…and according to the Phoenix Business Journal Go Daddy Group Inc. is now #10 on the fast-growth list and #8 on the largest private companies list. Wikipedia states that Go Daddy is four times the size of its closest competitor. Not too bad for a guy who started out of his garage. How do I know this? Because one of my clients was his neighbor, and knew him way back when…when he started small, and thought BIG.
