How Can We Help You?

Nick and I have been spending quite a few years on this podcast. It has been instrumental in shaping who we are and what we do both professionally and personally. We have learned so much throughout all of the time, conversations, and interactions. We have always approached the podcast through the lens of how we can add value to the industry. What are the critical questions that must be asked and conversations that must be had. The last couple of years we have been scratching our heads as to how we can further our reach and further our impact. How can we help our listeners and the next generation improve their companies and their chances of success? We realized that we have been looking further than we need to in order to make this happen. 

Full transparency, this podcast costs money. It also costs time. A lot of time to be honest. We have struggled over the years to balance the time invested with the financial return. We have partnered with amazing companies, presented at trade shows, and created content to help aid and fund all of the media we produce. We never started the podcast to make money, but at some point we had to offset the costs. We have outsourced and delegated many duties and responsibilities in order to grow and legitimize our platform and our presence. 

Fast forward to today….Our plan is to roll out some new products and documents on our webpage. The goal is to be able to create a slew of content, how-to’s, templates, and information for anyone and everyone to benefit. If you are not comfortable with hopping on a consulting call, but really want some insight as to how I vet my customers, you can download a document walking you through the process. If you want to see how Nick determined his labor burden, you can download a link to calculate the cost. Do you want to know what paint products I prefer, what tips I use for what application, how I budget for projects, engage subs, etc? We plan to populate this portion of the website with information that can help you better your product, your team, and your business. 

The goal with this venture as with every other decision and avenue that we have pursued on Modern Craftsman, is to create some financial backing to afford us an opportunity to devote more time to this platform. To pull back and spend more time each and every week. Just as we have with creating notebooks, hats, and merchandise, it is with the hope that all of you appreciate what we are doing and have an avenue to give back and invest in this platform. You probably do not need a shirt or a notebook, but it helps us create the community and the brand that is Modern Craftsman. It is a way for our listeners to say thank you, we appreciate what you are doing, and we want MORE! So keep any eye out for what is to come. We are in the process of building a system that will make it easier to correspond to all of you and keep you in the loop as far as new episodes, new blogs, new courses/documents/templates. If you are interested in finding out more, or getting on our email list, please reach out and send your email along as we build a more robust system for this. 

As always, thank you for all of the support and all of the love over the years. We hope you have enjoyed what we are doing and we are a valuable resource for both you professionally and personally.
