#45 Jim Sweeney with Mom's Design Build- Rebel to CEO
Minnesota Made Podcast
Like many business owners, Jim was a bit of a rebel growing up. Not afraid of risk and preferring to do his own thing, Jim and his buddy started mowing yards at age 15, by 18 he had 8 employees and ended up selling the business so he could attend college. Having a close family and a love for this mother Mary, Jim started Mom’s Design Build, originally as a landscape company, but his clients wanted more, so they expanded, and now complete beautiful interior design and remodels.

Jim Sweeney | Running and Brewing on the Beast Coast
Jim Sweeney runs primary on the technical trails around upstate New York and New England, still loves a good old road marathon, and even ran the fastest hundred miler (13:09) in 2018. He’s also the Lead Brewer at a brewery you’ve heard me talk a lot about…Athletic Brewing in Connecticut. It was high time I had Jim on the show to talk about his life (he’s got a degree in forensic psychology, whaaa?), his love of brewing beer, and what races he’s got on the horizon. Fun talk with a guy sounds like he’s living the dream. I hope you enjoy this episode. Jim Sweeney on some non-technical trails! Jim Sweeney Episode Notes Here’s a link to the Escarpment Trail Run that Jim mentioned. Mighty technical. And here’s a link to the race I couldn’t remember…Manitou’s Revenge. And here’s a link to Athletic Brewing. If you need any suggestions, ask away. I’m what they call, I believe, a prolific drinker. (Here’s my story about when and why I stopped drinking and the role Athletic played.) Intro and outro music used with permission from David Rosales.
