Hear Jordan’s journey and the hard decision he had to make in his life and business after getting sick.
Molding Box was founded in November of 2005, as a simplified outsourcing solution. Providing its customers with flexible printing solutions, scalable shipping and handling services, as well as, disc media production.
It all started when Jordan Guernsey decided to branch out from a previous employer. He moved back into his parent’s house and set up shop in their basement, armed with only a credit card and a blessing. Once Molding Box started racking up clients, the company faced a new problem- financing a growing business. Trusting his idea would take off, Jordan put everything he had, a Visa with a $12,000 limit and $500 in cash into his company. His gamble paid off, within the first year Molding Box had eight employees all working in his parent’s basement. Molding Box started to take on a life of its own.

I love Jordan’s attitude. This is absolutely mind boggling to fathom how to handle staring cancer down, and turning that around to one of the best things happening for him. Jordan inspires me, and this story is fantastic. The next time I look at one of my own petty problems, I’m going to think back on Jordan kicking real problems in the teeth and overcoming them with laughter and smiles…
Thanks for listening Geordie! Yes, I completely agree that he really makes me put things in perspective too!

RIP Jordan Guernsey
I am so sorry for the loss of the Jordan Guernsey’s family and the loss to this world today.
The brief time I met Jordan he greatly impacted my life with his vigor for life and I feel blessed I was able to interview him and even was able to see his interaction with the kids on the video at the end.
So sorry to hear of Jordan’s passing the world has lost a great spirit!
Yes Mimika, it was a sad day. I have watched his video several times over listening to his message which rings even more powerful for me now.
Yes so sad. Makes me think about everything I’m doing and if it’s a good use of my time. Thanks for sharing!
Yes Mimika, definitely puts a perspective on things and what is really important in life.
What do you think you will do differently now?
I remember after I interviewed him I looked at the things in my life that I did not like doing like doing and outsourced some of them. Example–I used taskrabbit to do several errands I have each month.
I’m much more focused on how I spend my time and who I spend my time with. Life is short it needs to mean something!
Agreed Mimika! Life is short so lets make it count
We will miss you buddy. Thanks for making the world a better place while you were here.
Thanks Anthony…you made this interview possible! Thank you again for going out of your way to help make this happen as it was so powerful.
