Ep 52. Cannon Johnson, The Jackson Fence Story...

Podcast cover

This one will resonate with a lot of the #FenceFam! From working in the corporate world, 9-5, punching the clock, going through the motions, to running a successful family-owned and operated business.  A lot of us veterans will smile and laugh at the come-up of Cannon, and a lot will feel the "suck phase" he went through because they're in the same boat right now!    Mark my words, Cannon Johnson of Jackson Fence will be a staple fence company in his region in 3 years!   Cheers!   Remember to like, share, comment, and REVIEW!   Episode Links:

Stick with me on this one guys! I dive deep into vision boards and manifestation and how and why I've used it.  I'm a believer and there's proof of it.  Listen to my opinion on how to accomplish your personal goals and business goals by having a vision or road map on how to get there.  Along with that is manifesting your goals into reality.  It's deep, I know, but if this helps one listener, it's well worth it. Stick along to the end for something special!

Ep 44. River City Fence Spring 2022 Update, RANT

Podcast cover
Read more
Today I'm dropping a solo episode updating everyone on our company for spring 2022, how's it going, the good, the bad, and the could be betters of River City Fence.  It's been a while since I dropped a solo episode so I thought today would be a perfect time! I'll touch on a little bit of everything from weather, to employees, to material, to new machines, and I end it with a short rambling rant!  So the rant is just my .02 on the "tail wagging the dog" and how to handle the situation, from my perspective, right or wrong guys, it's just my opinion. Take it for what it's worth!   Cheers!   Remember to like, share, comment, and REVIEW!   Episode Links:

Ep 40. Nathan Downs

Podcast cover

Another great one from a guy I met in New Orleans at FenceTech!  Nathan was on the podcast during the "Live From  the AFA Booth Series," and I had to have him back on to talk fence.  He's worked at Ameristar so he brings a wealth of knowledge from the big companies in the fence world, to managing a huge branch in a large fence company, to now running his OWN fence business!  I'm excited to see where he takes this company because of the knowledge, expertise, and experience he's acquired over the years!  We'll be visiting Nathan this September in OK, more on that later...   Cheers!     Remember to like, share, comment, and REVIEW!   Episode Links:
