Episode 1: Elite Entrepreneur 7 Figure Journey Podcast




In this episode of the Seven Figure Journey podcast, host Brett Gilliland welcomes Grant and Erin Stahla, co-owners of Stela Services, a unique company providing upscale portable restroom facilities across multiple states in the U.S. The business, which began with Grant and later saw Erin join after they married, offers specialized trailers such as restroom, shower, and handicap-accessible units for events, disaster relief, and corporate remodels. The couple delves into the origins and growth of their business, reflecting on the entrepreneurial spirit inherited from their families and their educational experiences at the University of Nebraska.
