    Ep. 14: Raj Setty on the engineering behind complex projects

    Ep. 14: Raj Setty on the engineering behind complex projects

    Raj Setty, President & owner of Setty & Associates joined Jared on the podcast.  His company does all of the necessary design and engineering associated with large-scale, complex, and ultimately very impressive projects.  Their work is not always recognized despite the high-profile nature of many of their products (they're the Rodney Dangerfield of engineering firms), but in spite of that their work remains top-quality and their portfolio of completed project speaks for itself.

    Raj gives a brief insight into his company, shares some fun anecdotes about specific projects,  and offers some important advice.  He and Jared also spend some time reminiscing about their favorite computer games - Sim City and Roller Coaster Tycoon - two all-time classics.

    Jared is in the sentimental spirit on this episode as he interviews his cousin, Patrick Horan.  Patrick is a serial entrepreneur going back to when he was charging neighborhood kids for rides to & from school.  Today, he is the owner of (as of this recording) two automotive repair shops - Precision Imports in Manchester, NH and AutoWorks in Kittery, ME.

    Patrick and Jared start out talking about the challenges as well as the necessity of following one's own path.  Patrick then gets into all things related to the automotive repair business, how mentorship & collaborative groups have benefited him, and how to pick the right shop to take your vehicle to.
