    Maybe They Will Notice My Potential, An Interview with Ken Tomita

    Maybe They Will Notice My Potential, An Interview with Ken Tomita

    I think a great way to introduce Ken is to read a direct quote from  Grovemade‘s website. 

    “The seeds were planted a decade ago by pure chance when I moved my custom furniture business into a humble workshop backing up to the railroad tracks. Across the street, in a run-down home, we called the “Fight Club House” lived enthusiastic entrepreneur Joe Mansfield. He was somehow running a very successful laser engraving and digital art business out of a spare bedroom. We soon became friends and would often throw a football around in the street—endlessly tossing creative ideas back and forth dreaming up the next big thing. One hot day in the summer of 2009, Grovemade was born.”

    Give People Permission to Speak Truth to Your Life

    An Interview with John Daly

    John grew up in the Green Mountain State of Vermont and somehow ended up in St. Louis (he says he took a wrong turn in Cleveland). His career began researching for unexploded ordinance and chemical weapons on formerly used defense sites (it was a booming business) and then he moved on to the National Archives and Records Administration. He spent about five years with Boeing and the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District.  He's passionate about showcasing how Information Governance can improve organizational effectiveness and creating process improvements. In his spare time, he serves part-time as a Baptist pastor and a high school cross country running coach.
