Hello, I am Grant Brott owner and creator of Haunted House Startup. I got my start in business back in 2000 while in the Marine Corps and have had a passion for business ever since. After the Marine Corps I spent four years going to school for small business management, business administration and web development. Then in 2005 I started my first haunt which was a small garage haunt that was absolutely a blast to do but when I look back was horrible when it comes to proper haunting because it was all cardboard and tape and twin with tiny pathways and we even had people crawl at one point. Since then the haunt has grown to encompass my yard, my neighbors yard and my backyard and one year part of the inside of my house.
In 2009 I got into researching so I could get a location to hold my haunt and just could not find enough information on how to get starting in the haunt business and ran into one road block after another. Well through all this I learned a tremendous amount and made a ton of contacts and then decided to start my own site dedicated to that information and experience so in January of 2010 Haunted House Startup was born. This put both my passions of business and haunted houses together and well you can see what has come of it.
The site is in a growing period as it is still rather young but I am adding to it in leaps and bounds. As you can see from the video which is our first we have decided to add video and there will be much more coming. We already do podcasts so people can take our audio discussions with them to listen too and we have several ebooks in the works covering various aspects of haunt business.
I hope you enjoy all the content and let us know if you have any questions, comments or concerns or if you have an idea for a topic for us to cover. Look forward to hearing from everyone.
