Episode 49: Getting Your Powder House in Order

 

Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. Which is why this episode is so ironic. After just interviewing Matthew Jones in Episode 48 on how he overcame his own health crisis to lead his company to new heights. On May 8th 2022 Ross, my husband, lead coater & sometimes co-host of the show was in a serious sportbike accident. He is recovering but sustained a broken left hand. At the time of this published recording, we are trying to figure out how we will continue to run our shop, facilitate customer orders & build out the shop for expansion. If you've ever listened to our first powder coater podcast you know we promised to share our story as owners of a powder coating job shop… today's topic of having a business plan in place is now more relevant than ever. 

If you are a shop owner with employees or a sole provider of your family you owe it to them to put systems & planning strategies in place to manage risk taking.  Will your company come tumbling down when you're not around? Putting a simple business plan & redundancies in place could help you stay focused, live a more balanced life and possibly weather a storm. To support the show, order the book “Traction” by Gino Wickman which this episode covers…click the link in the description. Please leave a comment if you would like to wish Ross a speedy recovery.  Get ready to level up your powder coater game!
