  • #8 The Significance of Technological Innovation in Manufacturing

    In today’s episode, Willie travels to Minneapolis, Minnesota where he has a conversation with Sunny Han, founder and CEO of Fulcrum. Sunny started learning how to code from the age of seven when he taught himself to write his own games as a child. After studying engineering, he used his business acumen to help struggling manufacturers through the recession. For the last 15 years, he has helped countless mid-size manufacturers around the globe to grow and expand their capacity. Sunny explains to listeners how Fulcrum introduces and implements the latest technology in the manufacturing industry and what their mission and vision for the future looks like. Tuning in to this episode, listeners will learn the many ways manufacturers can benefit from Fulcrum’s software capabilities, why partnerships and connectivity among manufacturers are inevitable, and how the Fulcrum team collaborates with companies to enhance their strong points while also helping them to push toward innovating for the future.

    If you’re traveling through Nashville, Tennessee, you may find an all-black trolley with gold font lettering, giving folks over the age of 21 a memorable experience that transports them back in time: boutique cigars, a shoeshine, and a conversation with a true gentleman, today’s guest, Daniel Hooberry, also known as Daniel Dark. Hear about his history as an electrical engineer, chocolatier, smokeshop owner, and culinary student, and how his health challenges altered the course of his career. Daniel tells us about his cookbook on Catsup, before sharing the story of how he narrowly avoided signing a lease for commercial property before the pandemic. Next, he gives us the inside scoop on how he found and restored the trolley that he runs his business from today, we talk about how to book a visit to Gentlemen’s Cigars, and Daniel describes the experience he offers his customers when they step aboard. He also gives us a glimpse of his cigar selection process and describes the experience he facilitates, including a range of glasses for the drinks you bring on board, and we touch on the rules around the resale of rare cigars. In closing, Daniel tells us how to find out where he is parking next and how to book a visit with him. We hope you join us to hear about the phenomenal service he offers!

    If you want to take your family to an amazing destination but you don't currently own an RV, or if you have an RV and you’d like to make a bit of extra cash when you’re not using it, this episode is for you! Today we are discussing the Airbnb of RVs, RVnGO. In this episode, we are joined by Richard Saling and Paul Kacir of RVnGO, one of the fastest-growing companies in the North American RV industry. Paul shares how he came up with the idea for the company and how, in the interests of bringing people together, he is determined to keep it a free service. We talk about the massive growth their business has experienced and why their website is the best place to find an RV for rent. We also talk about how the company makes money through value-added services, how their insurance works, and other features they offer such as 24-hour roadside assistance and a call center. Tuning in, you’ll find out why the second and third biggest fleets in the United States use their services, how you can even sell or buy an RV through them, and how you can get a special discount or even a referral payment through their affiliate program. Whether you would like to rent an RV or you have an RV that you’d like to rent out, tune in today!

    Packing up your family and pursuing the dream of life on the road sounds close to impossible, but today’s guests, Luke and Mel Lahr have been full-time RV’ing for five years with four kids, a dog, and a cat. You may recognize them from Instagram, Facebook, or their own website Lahrs with Latitude. As a family who has always been honest about the realities of full-time RV’ing, today they open up about the challenges and the rewards of this kind of lifestyle. Tuning in you’ll hear what made them decide that this was the life they wanted to pursue, how Luke got a travel job to enable this dream, and how the discovery of Mel’s pregnancy with their fourth child postponed their original plans. Find out what ‘unschooling’ is, how their kids have learned so much more through their travels than they would have in a traditional school system, and how they have personally grown as a family throughout the process. While making drastic changes to pursue a dream like this sounds daunting, the Lahr family explains how they baby-stepped their way into it, and you can too! Luke even has some RV-lifestyle-compatible job ideas for you. For all this and more, tune in today!

    Establishing a WiFi connection on the road is one of the most frequent topics our listeners ask about. Whether you’re looking to accommodate your teenage child, or hoping to carry on with your work responsibilities from the road, a steady WiFi connection in your mobile home is a common non-negotiable. Today, we speak with a phenomenal resource in the RV community, the Senior Director of Business Development at Winegard, Marvin Metzler, who distributes all the products you need for a seamless network on the road. We dive into our episode with a summary of the history of Winegard and the work they do, before Marvin tells us what it means for an RV to be WiFi prepped. We talk a bit about the hardware that Winegard offers and the practicalities of the installation process. Next, Marvin tells us about the different services available and highlights Winegard as the only hardware provider that connects with all three major carriers. We talk about the difference between using mobile data and setting up your vehicle with hardware to accommodate connectivity. Marvin gives us his predictions for the future and closes with a word about how Winegard has successfully moved from a TV company to getting involved with all kinds of wireless devices. We hope you tune in for some practical tips from this inspiring leader in the field!

    Meet Kelly Beasely, the founder of Camp Addict and a woman who has explored the country thanks to her RV and adventurous spirit. In this episode, Kelly talks about everything from how she began this journey, to becoming a full-time solo RV’er and boondocking. She also talks about how although this lifestyle can seem intimidating to some, it’s not much different then living in any given town–you just have a much greater level of freedom, and potentially a smaller fridge.

    Kelly also discusses the incredible community she has found through RV’ing, and how she is working on building up that community even more so through her website, campaddict.com. Established in 2017, this website provides RV’ers with accurate, trustworthy, and helpful information in one place to assist those who are looking to experience RV’ing full-time for themselves so that they can stop digging through the internet for information and can do more of what they love – exploring.

    No matter how many miles we’ve traveled, we all have a story to tell. On today’s episode of the Where’s Willie podcast, we speak to Jason and Abby Epperson, who we’ve dubbed the Walter Cronkite and Barbara Walters of National Parks and RV industry news with very good reason! Jason and Abby kick off with the story of how they started the full-time RV journey in a converted school bus with their kids in tow. We talk about how the pandemic-related restrictions snowballed the RV industry. Jason and Abby walk us through the concept behind each of the Eppersons’ three podcasts. Next, we touch on the RV industry’s components and how that has been sustained throughout the pandemic. Our guests get real about the highs and lows of full-time RV life behind the veil of social media. Jason and Abby talk about how to choose an RV that’s best suited to your needs and explain to us why the RV with the most features is not always the best option. The Eppersons emphasize the value of educating yourself according to what you need before buying a fully kitted-out vehicle. Finally, we discuss what digital publishing entails and the perils of peddling a false narrative on social media instead of sharing who you truly are. Jason and Abby reveal to us that their focus is to create something that reaches further than their personal identity in order to build long-lasting stability. Tune in to hear about raising a family on the road, building a sustainable brand and choosing a vehicle that’s best suited to you.

    In this episode of the Where’s Willie podcast, we are sitting down with Demian Ross, the publisher of Rootless Living Magazine. We talk about his foray into nomadic life, what it means to be rootless in today's globalized world and how he hopes that Rootless Living can foster empathy and excitement for those who have chosen or been forced by circumstances to live outside of their initial comfort zone and take to the road. 

    The thing about traveling or working from the road is that you don't have to put your life on hold to do what you love, as Demian dives into - some days are travel days, some are workdays, but everything remains flexible. Working from the road does take some adjustments though - like finding reliable Internet service so that projects can be done remotely. Hear his incredible story by tuning in today!

    Kennedy Leighton is a Central Michigan University student and self-published author from Schoolcraft Michigan whose vulnerable story has uplifted, supported, and encouraged many struggling with grief and loss.  In 2014, Kennedy and her family experienced the tragic loss of her mother. As her role model and the woman she admired most, Kennedy felt at a loss — confused and brokenhearted — as she prepared to start high school. For a brief period, she found herself on the wrong path, with the wrong group of friends.  But a turning point arrived on her sixteenth birthday, in which Kennedy fully realized the potential to transform her life, and the lives of others, by sharing her loss and the tremendous kindness she received from others through writing.  Ultimately, Kennedy self-published two books, Dear Kennedy and Miraculous Every Day, and created an online store called Kennedy Marleen. Kennedy’s story is one of encouragement, vulnerability, and love. Her books and personal experiences are a testament to the notion that refocusing pain for a greater good can lead to an avenue of self-healing and healing for others. Today, Kennedy remains grounded by her faith, the guidance of her father, and her belief that everyone has a story worth sharing.

    A Professional Guide is a professional at all times — they are mentally alert and physically prepared for a strenuous day of guiding. Their self-confidence can be observed but not heard — they are totally prepared for the day and ready to accept its challenges, good or bad. Their appearance and dress show pride in themselves and the operation they represent. They immediately become a teacher to their clients and the client readily accepts their leadership. The motto belonging to our guest’s Fly Fishing outfitting company. Today we welcome a good friend of Willie’s, and a former college and AHL hockey star, Dana Lattery. Dana is now the president and CEO of Fly Fishing Bow River Outfitters, as well as First Cast Last Pass Media, a full marketing video agency, located north of Montana, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Dana has been featured on the cover of Fly Fusion Magazine, Home Water for Orvis Down the Hatch Film Festival, and he continues flying around the world in pursuit of catching and capturing his greatest passions. Born in Alberta, raised in the back-country. Fishing, hunting, nature, the wild, all run thick in his blood. Stay tuned for our show today as we hear from Dana all about how he got into the outfitting business as a fly fishing guide, how he supplements that income with other businesses and creative outlets, what Fly Fishing Bow River Outfitters has to offer, and much more!

    “Whenever there’s chaos, whenever there’s disruption, there are always opportunities for people to thrive.” This powerful takeaway comes from today’s conversation with global business celebrity, bestselling author, and C-Suite Network Co-Founder and Chairman Jeffrey Hayzlett.

    Real-world problems are becoming increasingly complex, along with many of the technological solutions that we employ. Keeping up with this pace can be a struggle, but those who stay behind get left behind. Enter the America Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) — an organization devoted to advancing the future of both engineering and engineers. Today we speak with key ASME members Debbie Holton and Christine Reilley, the respective ASME Managing Director of Events and Senior Director of Strategy and Innovation. After sharing details of their extensive careers, we explore the role that the ASME plays within the engineering landscape. Debbie and Christine then discuss ASME’s philanthropic contributions in supporting innovators within emerging economies. With so many concurrent advancements, we ask Debbie and Christine about how digital-enabled technology has been affecting manufacturing. They highlight how many small to medium manufacturers feel that they’re being left behind before focusing on ASME’s work in helping companies adapt. We dive into the future of the industry and our guests share insights into the skill sets that manufacturing engineers will need to adopt. Near the end of the episode, Debbie and Christine talk about how ASME has responded to the pandemic and their role in connecting volunteer engineers to sites where they would have the most impact. Few organizations do as much for the engineering world as the ASME. Tune in to hear more about their incredible work.

    Sometimes you get an idea that seems so good you’re sure it exists already. Today’s guest is Chris Meade and when he got the idea for CROSSNET he had that same thought, except that after googling it, he found nothing! CROSSNET is the world’s first four-way volleyball game and since its conception in 2017 it has grown to become the fastest-selling consumer product in North America, partnering with giants like Walmart, Amazon, and Wilson. Today we were lucky enough to get Chris, now a celebrity and a Forbes 30 Under 30 nominee, on the show to talk about how he came up with the idea and what it has been like in the driver’s seat as CROSSNET has ballooned in the last three years. Chris talks about growing up in Woodstock, Connecticut, a small town where kids needed to make their own games up if they wanted to have a good time, and how he came up with the idea for CROSSNET one night while he was burned out working for Uber in New York. Chris explains the simplicity of how CROSSNET works and then we take a deep dive with him into the process and timeline of growing the business, starting with the design blueprint to finding manufacturers, making millions of dollars, and partnering with major retailers and e-commerce sites. Along with this, we talk to Chris about what it isreally like scaling the business behind such a picture-perfect story, and what is in store for CROSSNET as far as partnering with celebrities and famous brands, and Chris’s dream for it to become a globally recognized sport. Be sure to tune in!

    Today our destination is Irving, Texas, as Willie chats to Alex Carroll from Stand Up Stations! Alex is the co-founder of the company along with his wife Kelsey, and he tells us about this new venture that was born as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. After their previous business, Toss Up Events, came to grinding halt with the social restrictions, Alex began looking for other ways to stay afloat and came across the shortage of available sanitizer stations, a need he and his wife then set out to service. We hear about their earliest choices, the first prototypes, and how quickly they have grown in just a few months. Alex also shares some information about the different products they currently offer, their pricing model, and how he goes about networking and looking for companies to partner with. The conversation takes in a wide range of issues facing manufacturing during this difficult time. We think about the tasks of preparation and forecasting, making sure to be present online, and also the adjacent question of locally manufactured versus imported goods. Alex generously shares some of the lessons he and the team have had to learn to adapt quickly to this new landscape and his example is a great one for manufacturers trying to find their footing at the moment. Join us to catch all of this and more!

    Today, Willie’s virtual travels across the country take him to Orange County, California, to talk to – in the words of his 12-year old son – the coolest man in the world, Aaron Aders. Aaron is the founder of Summerboard, an electric snowboard designed so that he could snowboard anywhere. Summerboard is wildly popular among snowboarders, but it is also loved by surfers, rock climbers, musicians, and engineers who get lost in their own passions. In this episode, Aaron shares a bit about his background and what led him to creating Summerboard, to emulate the feeling of snowboarding, and providing an experience that you can’t find anywhere else. We talk about marketing, production, and customer service, as well as raising capital and finding angel investors. Aaron talks about the importance of durability testing and the voice of the customer, and he encourages those with hardware ideas – like hoverboards, because Summerboard is eager to produce one! – to reach out to him with pitches.

[summary] => Today, we’re talking with the veterans of VETtoCEO, a nonprofit organization that supports veterans and transitioning military members to succeed in business ownership. We meet the co-founders, Michael Horn and John Panaccione, the First Executive Director, Monty Heath, and current Executive Director, Rob Campbell. Michael served as an Airborne Ranger for 21 years in the US Army, and also owns Brothers Body and Equipment, a specialty vehicle manufacturer in Galion, Ohio. John served 6 years on active duty as a US Army Officer, mostly as a Paratrooper and Jumpmaster in the 82nd airborne division. John is also the co-founder and CEO of LogicBay, working with leading companies to develop and implement strategies for scaling indirect sales channels, using a combination of services and technologies. Monty, the first Executive Director of VETtoCEO in 2017, is a veteran who served as a US Navy SEAL for over 10 years. Rob, VETtoCEO's current Executive Director, began his career in the Army as an Infantry Officer in 1990. He served in a variety of command and staff positions in a career spanning over 27 years. Rob has since written two books – At Ease and It’s Personal, Not Personnel – and found his calling as a business consultant. In this episode, we discuss VETtoCEO’s purpose and mission, advice for transitioning from military to entrepreneurial life, and the mindset shift necessary, as well as why manufacturing is sexy. Michael, John, Monty, and Rob highlight the importance of passion and share the opportunities and struggles with starting a veteran-owned business. They also outline some of their ideas for the future of the VETtoCEO curriculum, and tell listeners and potential investors how to support their cause, even in ways that aren’t monetary. Tune in to find out more about going from veteran to CEO!

[summary] => Today Willie’s travels take him to Wilmington, North Carolina where he talks to John Panaccione, the CEO of LogicBay. John has over 18 years of experience, leading teams that focus on using technology to improve corporate performance. They help companies develop and implement strategies for scaling indirect sales channels using a combination of services and technologies offered by LogicBay. Before founding the company in 2003, John has led sales and marketing at Cognitive Arts, an innovative leader in high-end workplace simulation software. In this episode, John discusses the what, why, and how of their software solution, describing their product as a complete toolbox for manufacturers to sell to their distribution channels. But far from focusing only on the technological prowess of the LogicBay solution, he stresses the importance of correct implementation and integration with all other systems. Over the last few decades, the sales landscape has transitioned from a push to a pull strategy, and manufacturers need to gear themselves toward these changes and start thinking differently about their engagement with end customers—all of which take precedence in the LogicBay solution. In the sea of confusing software options, LogicBay sets itself apart through its transparency and clear communication around what manufacturing customers can and cannot expect from their offering.

[summary] => As we are in the COVID-19 jungle and are unable to meet face-to-face, finding new technologies that can get your product to customers may be just what you’re looking for. Today’s guest on the Where's Willie Podcast is Larry White. As CEO of Interlynx Systems, he might be able to help with the new challenges brought to the manufacturing industry by COVID-19. Interlynx is a sales lead management system that provides beautifully crafted sales leads every month. Their primary goal is to foster a better relationship between the manufacturer and distributor when it comes to lead management and they do this by optimizing and automating communications between the two that usually cause tension. Specifically, Interlynx offers lead management systems that provide data to each party that helps them more effectively pursue sales leads. We kick things off today hearing about how Larry got into the business of sales lead systems and then hear about some context regarding the logistics behind manufacturing a product and then distributing it to clients. Larry talks about the roles of each party and he lists some of the reasons they might not synchronize and how this affects the service they provide to customers. He gets into the ways that his product intervenes at each step to resolve these issues and the benefits this provides. Finally, we look at the current crisis and consider how manufacturers using a distribution model could solve the problem of growing using Larry’s services in the coming months. This leads to the subject of charitable work and Larry touches on some of the awesome community work he has already been doing as well as how he plans to extend it at present. Tune in and hear all about the benefits of lead management software to manufacturers, distributors, and customers from somebody that knows the business inside out!

Shawn has worked in the industry for more than 25 years and his experience has been essential to the huge operation of responding to these unprecedented circumstances.

[summary] => This week's show brings us to Pleasant Grove, Utah, to have a conversation with John Keller, Co-Founder and President of REDLIST. For as long as manufacturing has existed, different divisions have been managed independently or regulated by separate entities. This means that within companies, there are vacuums and powerful operational silos. Not only is this an inefficient way to manage a manufacturing business, but it also means that one when one area is optimized, the other ones suffer. John Keller looks to tackle this last-standing problem through his company, REDLIST, based in Pleasant Grove, Utah. As a SaaS company, REDLIST is a cloud-based, mobile-ready app that works to close the data gaps between managers, teams, and machines. In this episode, John dives into the groundbreaking work that REDLIST is doing. There is a growing realization from companies that there is a better way to share information but they know they cannot do it alone. REDLIST is leading the charge, helping break down these entrenched silos to allow businesses to focus on what they’re supposed to – capturing the market share or finding and securing the best talent. We also discuss details of how the product works across platforms, the possibilities that implementing this system offers, and what the future of manufacturing looks like now that these tools are available.

Podcast, Willie travels to Winchester, Virginia to talk to George Hoddinott and his associates from the City of Winchester about the central role of manufacturing and how the city supports this. Recognized by Forbes as the number one place in Virginia for business and careers, the city is resolutely committed to attracting and retaining young talent for its industries. We discuss all the things the city is doing to positively impact lives through manufacturing, including coordination of various departments of local government, the education system, and incentive programs. The panel talks about the way the city views promoting college versus career decisions and also how there is still some work to be done in changing negative connotations of the manufacturing sector. We look at the rise of robotics, virtual and augmented reality, as well as the use of virtual tours for the prospective workforce. For this fascinating conversation about a city that is clearly engaged and dedicated to growing its manufacturing sector in the right way, tune in!____________________________________________________________________________To keep up with your host, William Miller, follow him on Twitter @williekoganei and on Instagram @williekoganei_ [audioFile] => https://megaphone-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/podcasts/8d7f3b70-a75e-11ea-942c-d3504fe6f0e3/episodes/9043d5d2-a75e-11ea-9d03-6fa3fcf5f0f1/stripped_5e1908d94f191f2ce14ff0f6612815d7.mp3 [downloadUrl] => https://traffic.megaphone.fm/CSN6145759437.mp3 [size] => 37272137 [duration] => 1553.01 [uid] => CSN6145759437 [originalUrl] => https://traffic.megaphone.fm/CSN6145759437.mp3?updated=1593731036 [bitrate] => 192 [samplerate] => 44100 [channelMode] => stereo [vbr] => [audioFileProcessing] => [podcastId] => 8d7f3b70-a75e-11ea-942c-d3504fe6f0e3 [preCount] => 1 [postCount] => 1 [insertionPoints] => Array ( ) [id3File] => https://megaphone-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/podcasts/8d7f3b70-a75e-11ea-942c-d3504fe6f0e3/episodes/9043d5d2-a75e-11ea-9d03-6fa3fcf5f0f1/id3/d7a828fe49e45029887b31500bc1d63c.mp3 [id3FileProcessing] => [id3FileSize] => 71188 [parentId] => [guid] => whereswillie.podbean.com/4-a-city-built-on-manufacturing-dfb12773da2b1c6688808487d195ab9a [pubdateTimezone] => [originalFilename] => [preOffset] => 0.0 [postOffset] => 0.0 [spotifyIdentifier] => [expectedAdhash] => [audioFileUpdatedAt] => 2020-07-02T19:03:56.737-04:00 [draft] => [externalId] => [cleanTitle] => #4 A City Built On Manufacturing [customFields] => [podcastTitle] => Where's Willie?
