November 28th, 2016

What do dog food, exploiding duck heads, loose stools, sales management and lawn ornaments made of cow manure all have in common?  They are all things my cousin talked about on this episode of American Dreamers.  Dave Dourson, owner of Kinetic Performance Dog Food talks about how he and his partner turned an idea into a successful business.  I also picked his brain about his sales managment background...and found out that if you don't know your customer, you might end up with 83,000 headless ducks!

November 14th, 2016

Many of us made at least one clay vase/bowl/pot/ashtray in our early life. But only a few of us were so inspired by our efforts, that we made it our life's work.  Such is the case for well over 100 crafters, artists and makers who's work will be on display this Saturday at Crafty Supermarket, held this year at the University of Cincinnati Recreation Center.  My guest on the show is Grace Dobush, co-organizer of the event.  We'll talk about the logistics of putting on such an event, while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

Episode 151: Rodger Roeser, Eisen Agency
