    Episode 10: Meet Andrew Meo from Rocket Espresso

    Episode 10 of The Remarkable Business Show


    Welcome to a special episode - number 10! I could not have done this without Howard and Harry at engine7. If you need audio production, you need to speak to Howard :) Thank you brother!


    Check them out here.


    In this episode I talk about the fact that time can really fly... and being mindful of how you spend your time.



    Not letting good get in the way of great.



    I also think about how brands and businesses which tell stories are the ones that succeed and also a little on B Corporations. I love brands that do something really well. McNair Shirts, Plum and Ashby and Bluffworks for example.


    What brands do you like?


    At the end of the show I cover something that's caught my eye, so much I bought one, and that's an Awair.
    It's a device that monitors indoor air and I cannot recommend them enough. Make sure you listen to why it works so well.

    Special guest - Andrew Meo


    I’m delighted to welcome Andrew to the show. New Zealander Andrew Meo one of the founding partners of Milan based espresso machine manufacturer, Rocket Espresso.


    Self employed since the age of 21, Andrew has developed a number of businesses, predominately within both the hospitality and coffee industries before purchasing a failing Italian espresso machine manufacturing business in 2007 and establishing Rocket Espresso.


    Driven by both the technical competence of the machine, combined with machine aesthetic, Rocket Espresso is now a leading espresso machine manufacturer.


    When not at his desk, Andrew will undoubtably be riding his bike preparing for forth coming races (or having a coffee and a slice of cake).


    What we covered



    what Rocket Espresso do and how they started
    their range (consumer and commercial) and the market for these type of machines
    learning about how to brew good coffee at home and the categories of users
    how the market has changed
    the design aesthetic for Rocket
    design and functionaility
    the Rocket brand experience
    the connection with cycling and how this started with a special machine and a collaboration with Rapha
    Rocket's ambassador programme
    the Rocket culture
    Italian working culture
    avoiding hierarchy and everyone getting their hands dirty
    the biggest challenges over the past few years and overcoming these
    how to manage change
    Andrew's biggest challenge in 2019
    new products and the importance of a good grinder
    the importance of setting your business apart from the competition
    going into business for the wrong reason
    the importance of competition
    brands Andrew likes and good business models




    Quote of the Episode:


    This episode’s quote comes from Hunter S Thompson and refers to what I was talking about at the beginning of the show.


    That is making sure you don’t stay on autopilot, you become mindful of what you are doing and what you are PLANNING on doing.


    Life is short and most people look back and think of the things they wish they did… estimate how many years you have left, even months and days and you soon realise we are not immortal… (not wanting to be morbid, it's reality!).


    Hunter summed it up nicely…



    “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”





    What's caught my eye?


    Awair


    Awair tracks invisible fine dust and chemicals in your air and gives you personalised recommendations to help you stay safe and healthy. Get one for your home and office. Highly recommended.

    Episode 9: Meet Steve Leighton - the Hasbean coffee legend

    Episode 9: Meet Steve Leighton - the Hasbean coffee legend

    Episode 9 of The Remarkable Business Show


    Thanks for tuning in for this episode and a special welcome if you are a first-time listener.


    It's been over a year since the last episode was published - profuse apologies! The last fifteen months have been full of work and travel - 12 countries in 2018 and over 25 flights! I also spent a good proportion of the winter in Asia back in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand.




    This episode is dedicated a very special friend who has recently passed away - Richard Wanderman. Richard was one of life's good guys and I miss him. He was wise, kind and generous. Even though we lived thousands of miles apart, we always kept in touch and I looked forward to our FaceTime calls.


    Richard was supportive and encouraging, especially when I set up Hull Digital, the tech and digital community in the city here in East Yorkshire. HD has just turned ten years old and I wrote a post here about it, and importantly what I learned over the years.




    It's good to be back and I have a very special guest for this episode. A good friend and someone who I've known for over a decade!


    Special guest - Steve Leighton


    I’m super-pleased to welcome an old friend onto the show - Steve Leighton. If you are into coffee, you have probably heard of him, listened to him or watched him online.


    Steve is the founder of Hasbean coffee and also the co-owner of Drop Coffee and 3FE.


    We actually recorded this conversation back in 2017 and so I picked up the phone a few weeks and apologised for the slight delay, ahem.


    Luckily Steve was very understanding so please bear with us if there are a few things that are slightly out of date. I wanted to make sure I put this out as there is so much wonderful information about coffee and an insight into how Steve has created a remarkable business.


    What we covered



    the very first iPhone and joining Twitter back in the day
    visiting Hull and how we met
    flickr
    Hasbean operations
    how to make good coffee
    Coffee 101
    Sourcing good coffee and 127 flights in one year!
    telling stories
    email hell
    autonomy and owning your own area
    the Hasbean story
    key investment in the business
    customer service when thinngs go wrong
    In My Mug
    Drop Coffee and Scandinavia
    the importanc of balance
    Lush and Omnipollo beer


    Quote of the Episode:


    "To make every minute count you’ve got to make every future minute count also. And that means living a life today that won’t leave you burnt out and broke in 5 or 10 years.



    Shawn Blanc


    Shawn and I spoke back in 2017 and recorded a great conversation which like Steve’s I have not done anything with! I’m going try and get this sorted out for a future episode.


    In the meantime, have a look at what Shawn does over on

    Episode 7: Interview with Sean McCabe - author of Overlap Book

    Episode 7 of The Remarkable Business Show


    Thanks for tuning in for this episode and a special welcome if you are a first-time listener.


    In this episode I talk about the opportunity for any business to have something remarkable which they can be known for. Also, why it doesn’t have to be high tech and not to ignore the cracks…

    This is why this episode's guest, Sean McCabe and his new book, Overlap, is a perfect fit if you are thinking of starting your own business. (You must be ready to pay the price though).


    It doesn’t mean quitting your day job and hoping for the best - Sean explains what is possible.

    — Sean’s favourite new app


    Quote of the Episode:


    This episodes quote is from Arianna Huffington.


    "Failure is not the opposite of success; it's part of success."


    Why? Because you are always going to be ahead of someone if you try something. Ok, you don’t start out wanting to fail… but most people don’t even get that far.

    Episode 5: Interview with Marc Giusti from Veloforte

    Episode 5: Interview with Marc Giusti from Veloforte

    Episode 5 of The Remarkable Business Show and it's super-tasty!


    Welcome to Episode 5!


    A big question for you... how is your year going? Do you actively have a sense check and make sure you are on track? May I suggest that you shouId?


    In this episode, I talk about my weekly review which I'm confident can help you. It doesn't take long and fits nicely with the quote of the show...


    I also look at the tenth-anniversary of the iPhone which has just passed and I cover the areas of our life and business that have been transformed by this wonder-in-our-pockets. I also mention the possibility of the future iPhone (8 or Pro?!) where authentication is ambient and perpetual - Rene Ritchie brought this up on a recent post and it makes a whole heap of sense.


    This episode's interview is with a super guy called Marc Giusti. Marc is the Founder of Veloforte - a new range of clean and tasty nutrition products created specifically to support sustained performance during endurance activities.


    Veloforte’s adaptation from authentic family Panaforte recipe to credible nutrition for endurance activities’ was masterminded by the brand’s co-founders, husband and wife team Marc and Lara Giusti.


    Motivated by Marc’s personal journey back to fitness following an operation, in combination with deep disappointment with existing synthesised mass-market, performance enhancing gels, bars and powders – Lara began by adapting the family’s version of the ancient Italian fortifier…Panforte.


    Created from a delicious blend of fruits, nuts and spices and a specialty of Siena in Tuscany, Panforte has been made by generations of the Giusti family. Baked by spice sellers, who were the pharmacists of the day, as early as the 13th century Panaforte was held in high regard not only as a food but also as a cure - a fortifying cake to restore health & vitality, by virtue of the presence of spices in its dough.


    Marc and I enjoyed a terrific chat where we covered a huge amount about setting up a Remarkable Business.


    YOU'LL LEARN:


    -- how the business came about
    -- the challenges of a startup selling a physical product
    -- the marketing that really worked
    -- a brand as well as a product
    -- the opportunity to challenge as a startup
    -- the power of being small
    -- testing in the real world
    -- how he connects with customers and prospects
    -- the advice he would give to a company growing...
    -- the importance of the business plan AND investment plan




    Quote of the show


    *“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking.


    Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”*
