Get Up Nation®! My name is Ben Biddick. I’m the Creator and Host of the Get Up Nation® Show and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with Vick Tipnes. Vick is the Founder and CEO of Blackstone Medical Services, a National Provider for Home Sleep Testing. Today this company has over 30 employees and makes multi-millions in revenue every year. Blackstone Medical Services does business in over 38 states, is contracted with over 17 million lives via various Insurance Providers and provides a level of service to Out Patients, Physicians and Insurance Providers that is unmatched. It wasn’t always this way. In 2012, at the age of 35, with no job, no college degree, no parents, no business training, a personal life in chaos and only 78 dollars in the bank, Vick refused to give up on his dream. He refused to make excuses and launched this business from his kitchen table. Over the next 5 years he expanded daily until it became the largest company of its type in the United States. Today, Vick shares with Get Up Nation® his insights into a resilient mindset that helps people rebuild, create, or expand a business. Vick, welcome to Get Up Nation®!
