Sean Carothers is the owner of Carothers Construction, a Mississippi construction firm that has operated since 1957. Over the years, in addition to being involved in Carothers Construction, Sean has pursued various entrepreneurial ventures.

Before Sean Carothers becomes involved in a new business venture, there are a number of criteria he takes into account. First, the basic tenants of the business must be easily understandable. Then, Sean likes to meet with the leaders of the company if possible. Strong leadership with the proper skill set necessary to scale the business and remain profitable are things Sean considers essential to successful ventures.

Outside of work, Sean Carothers is an avid skier and bowhunter. He primarily hunts trophy whitetail bucks in Mississippi, occasionally hunting in Illinois, and Kansas. He has also hunted turkey and elk over the years.

Sean first started to ski while he was still in college. Aspen, Colorado; Grand Targhee, Idaho; and Alta, Utah are at the top of Sean Carothers’ list of favorite skiing destinations. He particularly enjoys skiing at Aspen Mountain in Aspen, one of the best skiing destinations in the United States.

The best advice that Sean Carothers has for new skiers is: “Find a great teacher. Then find a method and stick with it.” Sean is a strong believer in the Clendenin Method. John Clendenin is a world champion mogul skier who is now in his 60s. He has spent a lifetime perfecting the method and fine tuning how he explains it to students. Sean trained with Clendenin and describes him as “an excellent coach who understands and can explain the nuances of proper skiing technique better than anyone I have ever met.”

Just like in life and business, there are bumps along the journey down the mountain. Skiing has taught Sean Carothers that it’s important to prepare for the bumps before hitting them—regardless of the form they take. This attitude has helped him become a skilled skier as well as a successful entrepreneur. Read Less
