Junk to Gold is about one man's journey from humble beginnings to unimaginable success. Willis Johnson, the founder of Copart [CPRT], offers up a personal and inspirational account of this journey to the top including lessons he learned from love, war and building a global, multi-billion dollar business. Even at the pinnacle of success, Willis remained grounded in his family-first values. His stories will inspire and provoke the entrepreneur in everyone to start building their dream.
Willis built Copart from one junk yard to a $4.5 billion high-tech driven auction company. This did not come from a series of successful 5-year plans. Willis never had a long-term plan. His focus was to survive. To get up each morning and do the best he could. He brings to that task certain natural abilitiesthe ability to constantly observe; to think about what he observes; to prioritize; to delegate; to rethink, reexamine almost everything constantly. And he is comfortable making decisions
