Building A Business- Interview with John Frye

building a business interview with john fryeBuilding a business is something that I have done a lot of research on and done a lot of time thinking about.  I am still very young to the game of entrepreneurship and in the effort to bring you quality content that you can do something with, I brought on a young entrepreneur to speak with us.  John Frye has had a lot of experience in being an entrepreneur and building businesses.  We spent the other night speaking about building businesses and getting in insider information about such ventures.  This is a big way to help fund your retirement by using the profits of your side business to pay off debts and to invest to increase your assets.  This is the show that I wish I had when I was younger and trying to figure out what I am going to do with my life.

Cocktails, Entrepreneurship, and How to not be a Noob at Cocktails

Cocktails, Entrepreneurship, and How to not be a Noob at CocktailsI have had the pleasure of sitting down with a young entrepreneur and talk about what else than cocktails with Alex from Cocktail Crate Mixers.  If that business name sounds familiar, you have probably seen it in stores.  Cocktail Crate Mixers distribute to thousands of locations all over the United States and will even ship to your door through their electronic checkout.  I have spoken about how to make sure that you are using fresh ingredients in your cocktails, this is your short cut without having to resort to those nasty, tasteless, and unhealthy mixers.  Alex has come onto the show and spoken about how he started his company, what his company does, and how to absolutely avoid being a noob at cocktails.

Starting A Bar With BarPrints

starting a bar with barprintsStarting a business is a little more than just waking up one morning and deciding that you want to be a business owner because you don’t want to go to work.  It takes planning, money, and a lot of decision making to go from zero to a hundred and making money.  Today I bring on a Gentleman that starts business for a living.  More specifically Sam starts Hotels.  During the conversation Sam said that he always loved the aspect of starting the bars in the hotels that he starts.  Sam joins us from Jamaica and talks about the entrepreneur mind and helps scratch that itch that you have had forever that constantly asked yourself “I wonder if I could start my own business?”  There are a few things that you have to do to be able to get a business started and Sam goes over that.  Sam also talks about the bar and how those the bar is ran.  Just like talking to an old friend, Sam is easy to listen to and has a lot of knowledge about the topic.

Where to find Sam from Bar prints

You can find Sam on Instagram where he posts pictures and videos under the name barprints.  You can find his page below by clicking on his logo.

A Conversation Between Two Firefighters

a conversation between two firefightersBack in my early years as a lifeguard I had a close friend.  Drew and I had a wonderful time cracking jokes and swapping stories about being firefighters which is always a good time.  We ended up parting ways after a few years and lost touch with each other for a long time, until a year ago.  I have made him my beer mentor, if that exist, because he has been brewing beer a lot longer than I have.  He came over to the office today to brew some beer and, again, swap stories of being firefighters.  Understand that these stories are not to be mean or making fun of people, but we are firefighters and enjoy stories.  Join me today, which so happens to be BREW DAY, as we talk about:

  • How we met
  • How I got him a job
  • How being a firefighters brought us together
  • Stories about being a rookie firefighters
  • Insights into the brotherhood
  • Funny firefighters stories

My Interview with Bob Mayne Of Today’s Survival Show

my interview with bob mayne of today's survival showA few days ago I had the great pleasure of speaking with Bob Mayne.  He hosts a show called Today’s Survival Show and second show called Handgun World Podcast both of which I subscribe to.  I am a huge fan of Bobs work and was star struck when he allowed me to speak on his show about Executive Protection for the Family.  If you have been listening to this for any lengh of time you will know that I am developing a concept of being a executive protection agent for your family and friends.  Boiled down, being a gentleman.  That was the topic for the show that was recorded on March 27, 2015.  Below is the About tab on his website if you would like to jump over and get some great information about him.

Today’s Survival Show is the creation of Bob Mayne. I am an everyday guy, not a survival teacher or author. I give you an everyday guy’s perspective on getting prepared for events that can happen on a daily basis, as well as those rare events that are extremely catastrophic. However, I don’t engage in tinfoil hat thinking. I keep it full of common sense to help you “do what you can, with what you have, wherever you are.” This podcast is published once a week. I live in San Antonio, TX with my family. Thanks for downloading and listening.
