Kenny Chapman


Kenny Chapman founded The Blue Collar Success Group with the focus of providing guidance that the in-home industry severely lacked – consistent ethical technician training and retention, on-site consulting, personalized marketing and business strategies to boost the bottom line for owners and entrepreneurs.

He noticed a need after hearing complaints from his industry peers and experiencing that frustration on his own, back in 1994 when he bought a plumbing company in Colorado and only took in $1,000 a month in revenue.

Kenny, now an award-winning industry trainer who later built that business into a multi-million dollar company, used his expertise to fill a void with the ever-changing Blue Collar Success Group designed for electricians, plumbers and HVAC services.

The team provides:

  • expert coaching for each individual trade needs
  • training for owners, technicians and office team members
  • multiple membership levels catered to the specific needs of each client
  • networking among businesses near and far who may experience similar issues
  • web-based schools
  • live events
  • and more to grow your business and have a better quality of life.


The Blue Collar Success Group and its premier, industry-proven programs have been featured in USA TODAY, Contracting Business, Plumbing & Mechanical, and on Fox News, NBC and ABC News.

Chris Crew


Chris joined The Blue Collar Success Group in early 2018 as a success coach, and has since offered extensive knowledge about every facet of the in-home services – pricing, planning, budgeting marketing, recruiting, training, and showing clients how they can transform their businesses into revenue generators. His journey through the industry began at age 16 as an apprentice electrician and, after just eight months, was promoted to lead technician. It was the tipping point for what would be his vast resume as a successful owner, supervisor and business coach.

Chris in 2005 joined a residential electrical company in Atlanta, and was quickly promoted to a supervisor responsible for 18 trucks and producing more than $4 million in revenue. He moved to Sarasota, Fla. in 2008 and served as a business coach for a large electrical company helping franchisees achieve success, like the “Million Dollar Award” he won in Georgia for producing $1.4 million in revenue. Chris, from 2010 to 2012, coached various plumbing, electrical and HVAC businesses for the franchisor and eventually oversaw the coaching team for more than 90 locations nationwide.

He then shifted to owning an electrical business, growing the company in a four-year span from 10 trucks to 60, five locations and generating $18 million. Chris ultimately sold his shares of the company to join The Blue Collar Success Group.

Jeremy Self

Business Coach & Trainer

Jeremy is masterful at creating systems that produce immediate results and was one of the creators of what’s known as “call-by-call” management. He found his passion for helping businesses – managers to everyone in between – achieve personal and professional growth after speaking at a Blue Collar Success Group event in 2018.

Jeremy forged an in-home services career in 2003 and, in two years, became one of the youngest top-producing high-ticket salespeople in the country. He’s held nearly every high-level role, including sales manager to general manager, in an in-home services company. Jeremy has been instrumental for the growth of franchises and start-up business, in addition to adding millions in revenue to existing privately held companies.  

Leslie Vanegas

Business Coach & Trainer

Leslie is a unique individual that has thrived in making her mark in the Home Services industry. She’s accomplished this by embracing a diverse set of skills and continuously seeking mentorship to grow and achieve mastery of these through hands-on practice and development of businesses. Her journey began in 2013 as happenstance allowed her to step outside of corporate training and into the Home Service industry where she quickly realized her passion for the industry would be everlasting.

Leslie has thrived in building sales lead coordination and opening one of the largest call centers in South East, FL that operated a $64M region.She then stepped into roles of operations, within home sales, which eventually led her down the path of service, sales and general management. She embraced her skills in entrepreneurship of strategy and implementation while consulting in 2017 and awakened her desires of helping others to Be, Do and Have more.
