    BB77: Changing Your Atmosphere

    BB77: Changing Your Atmosphere

    Been fortunate enough in the last few weeks to have the honor of mentoring a few gentlemen in person, that aim to start or improve their Asphalt Maintenance business. It got me thinking about my own life, and the "mentors" I have unintentionally made us of, and the ones I intentionally built relationships with to improve my business, relationships and Life. In this episode I reflect on all of that and share my story, as well as the advantages to becoming a mentor, as well as seeking one out. I also touch on just surrounding yourself with the right atmosphere of people, to change your situation by osmosis, I have you find this content helpful wherever it finds you and if you ever feel the need to reach out, we are always at blacktopbanter@gmail.com -Marvin

    BB76: Strategy & Branding w/ Jeani Ringkob

    BB76: Strategy & Branding w/ Jeani Ringkob

    After years of preaching the importance of branding, and using social media with all the other forms of marketing to do so, it feels pretty good to have somebody like Jeani on the show to confirm I at least know what I'm talking about in one area of life...I mean, that's a start people. Anyway, all jokes aside, Jeani is a lifetime member of the asphalt industry and has coached many clients to success in their businesses using her strategies. After spending many years at Koch Industries, Brasier Asphalt and Vance Brothers, Jeani took out on her own business venture to help other companies succeed with her guidance. With her company, StoryBuilt Marketing and Coaching, Jeanie is helping owners and clients develop strategies to get them branded in their respective areas, in their respective fields. I really enjoyed this conversation and found it very insightful because of the great tips she gave us. -Marvin

    BB75: Racing to Success w/ James Roe @James_roe9

    BB75: Racing to Success w/ James Roe @James_roe9

    My new friend and TOPCON sponsored Indy Lights Racing Pro, James Roe, sits down to talk about his career and how he got started. As well as his experiences racing on different pavement types and conditions. He also goes over what its like to race different car types altogether on different surfaces. One of the most insightful things we talk about is his racing of a famous track in Britain before it was repaved and after. He also gives us an idea of how TOPCON made this track repair as efficient as possible and how many, if not most, drivers are putting up their fastest lap times and records there now. Hope you enjoy this one as much as I did. -Marvin
