Patience is the word this week So I have 2 clients I'm doing too pretty good size projects for. One is living in the house and one is living off site. The one living in the house is pressing me because they want me to get finished because I'm making a huge mess and I've only just started literally within the last few weeks. And they want to celebrate T-DAY in their new kitchen. The one living off site is pressing me because they want to get back in their house because it's taken so long to do the project not...

Q. Is it hard coming into a new country and starting a new business? Not if you have a great plan! RG I came upon Pink Belts Roofing and Robyne Garten from a referral from my friend Gary Neidert when I was pitching the idea of this podcast series to him. A quick google search and email to Robyne and much to my delight a quick response. She was in fact going to be coming through my neck of the woods in a few weeks and could stop by the radio station and do a live interview. How much more lucky...

F.H. Perry Builders has a long and distinguished legacy in the greater Boston, Mass. area, in this weeks interview and podcast I had the privilege of chatting with the founders daughter, Allison who is now Owner/President.

Perry Builder was created. 2.) The company’s future President, Allison Perry Iantosca, turned five years old.

In 1977 or so I was invited by some friends to help rebuild a lodge in the mountains near the small town of Gold Hill, Colorado. Since I had nothing better to do and was wasting time and my mothers hard earned money screwing off in junior college in Tyler, Texas, I jumped at the chance. So off I went to live in an old abandoned ski cabin, with no water or electricity on an old abandoned ski run on what would become the turning point in my life. My 1st job as grunt and sacrificial "helper" was to scale to...

From NRCA  http://www.nrca.net/   As more women enter construction industry, job sites and equipment are slow to adapt Although the percentage of women who work in the construction industry is below 10 percent, there has been a steady increase of women in the field during the past decade, and their search for construction jobs has been made a bit easier by the high demand for construction workers. Still, the industry needs to take steps to ensure safety for women on job sites, according to www.marketplace.org. Many women face warnings about the challenges ahead when they choose to enter the roofing industry. But Tamara Crooks...

PLANNING YOUR REMODEL Big Decision Time Should I stay or Should I go? 1) Ask yourself what you’re willing to live with and have a realistic view of what you’ll be living through. If you stay are you?: 1) Are you slowing down the progress – time = $. 2) Creating dangerous living conditions for your family? 3) Making the workmen uncomfortable by creating a tense environment? 4) Willing to live with the dust, noise, and constant inconvenience of a remodel. 5)Can the work be scheduled during a scheduled vacation time? Preparing the family- If you’re redoing your kitchen –create a temporary kitchen. Plan on eating out at least 1 or 2...

Today, I had lunch with an old friend. As to be expected our conversation quickly veered to my radio show, we were laughing so hard the waiter had to come back twice to get our order. We talked about how social media has become the primary vehicle by which we all communicate and how many wheels it roles on and how old fellas like us are being drawn from the dark ages of pagers and dial up internet. Recently, I  watched a video of a group of teens surrounding a young woman in a classroom, attempting to learn how to use...

Why would a person (me) give up his free time, evenings, and Saturdays to start a radio show? All I can say is passion. Passion to express and share my life's experiences. Passion to explore the stories of others and learn from their lives. I'm fascinated by the voyages others have taken, each and every story is a novel waiting to be heard. Hopefully this adventure will pan out and I can build a listener base and get support from enough advertisers to keep it going. I plan on moving into syndication and a podcast in the next few months....
