    The Business of Elevating a Sport, Friaring, and the Franciscan Mission

    The Business of Elevating a Sport, Friaring, and the Franciscan Mission

    Your Podcast Master, Andrew Lambert, brought another special guest into the studio for our February episode of Mind Yo Business. Not only is Friar Gabriel a Brother in the Fransican Church, he likes to shred on his skateboard and had a lot to share with us!
    Friar Gabriel, formerly known as Brandon, was born in New Hampshire and was raised Catholic with his brothers and sisters both there and, later, in Virginia Beach. He recalls the moment he found skateboarding “at the bottom of a mountain on a gravel driveway”. Since taking his vows and becoming a Franciscan Friar of the Immaculate (FFI), he has devoted his time to traveling the country and sharing the gospel message through skateboarding.
    He shares a story about his time in Australia when he steered a young man in the right direction, he discusses two Bloomington skater extraordinaires who he sees as elevating the sport, and Andrew and Brother Gabriel discuss the stereotypes surrounding skate culture and how Brother Gabriel is working to change that.
    This episode begins in a unique way and ends with a typical discussion of Lambert Rolls. Brother Gabriel gives Lambert Cafe a seal of approval for throwing bread at patrons. Don’t miss this great conversation!

    The Business of Long-Term Care, Caring About Others, and Enjoying Your Life

    The Pritchett Brothers Studio was so excited to welcome the wonderful Heather Kinderthain as our first guest of the season. 
     
    Her high energy and positive outlook were a great way to take on the topic of getting older.
     
    As owner of Simplified Eldercare, Heather has experienced life through the eyes of many clients who end up in retirement homes.  Her love for people and desire to have them live long and happy lives, Heather shares stories ranging from why we're scared of death, what we can do to stay active until our bodies slow, and how your loved ones are impacted by the challenges of aging.  
     
    With some great stories of living in England to learning more about her adoption and subsequent meeting of her biological parents to why she continues to care for the aging population, this episode is filled with heart and enthusiasm.   Heather also tries Magic Mind, talks about throwing rolls (while throwing bread at the podcast master), and talks about why the red haired Lambert (from the Witcher series) might just be the hero we're all looking for in today's age!

    The Business of Event Planning, Game Creating, and Pop Culture

    For the final episode of Season 6 of Mind Yo Business, your Podcast Master invited Josh Johnson into the studio. Josh Johnson is a well-known name throughout Bloomington, and for good reason! 
    Josh grew up in Cicero, Indiana, and like many others who have made Bloomington their home, made his way south to attend Indiana University for Communications. After graduating, he worked for over a decade as a venue manager and booker for places such as Uncle Festers, Second Story, and more. We got an attorney on the line so Josh could share with us some insight into an experience he had with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Leon Russell. After leaving that scene, Josh began running his company Mid By Midwest, Bloomington Pub Quiz, and serving the Board for MidWay Music Speaks. He tells us about what it is like to be a self-employed game creator, writer, event planner, and host.
     The episode concludes with a turning of the tables and Josh asks Andrew some trivia questions. Does Andrew have what it takes to conquer the Christmas pop culture quiz?? This conversation was a great wrap to another fantastic year of the Mind Yo Business podcast. Don’t miss out!

    The Business of Helping Others, Insurance, and Bass Fishing

    For the November episode of Season 6, Andrew Lambert welcomed Brandon Barrett into the studio for another great conversation. Stuffed with turkey and enjoying the holiday season, this conversation was one for the books!
    Brandon Barrett was born in Solsberry, IN, and moved to Bloomington at the age of fourteen when his dad took a position as a police officer. After graduating from high school, Brandon joined the Marine Corps (oorah!) and held the position of machine gunner while stationed at the reserves in Terre Haute. He shares how after leaving the Marines, he ended up working in the energy biz, which ultimately brought him where he is today. 
    Brandon shares how his time with the energy company taught him to look out for the interests of others, why the best way to get publicity is to help others, and why he is so successful at running the Barrett Agency - Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance. 
    There is also a fun conversation about competitive fishing and a side hustle Brandon has had going for several years now. Don’t miss out on this great episode!

    Collin Hartman

    Collin Hartman

    For our October episode of Mind Yo’ Business, we welcomed Collin Hartman into the studio. Not only is he an Indiana University Alumni, graduating with a degree in Business Management, but he was on the IU Men’s Basketball team as the small forward from 2013-2018. We couldn’t get Coach Woodson into the studio, so we got the next best thing!
    Born into a farm family in Nebraska, Collin shares how they made their way over to the south side of Indy and eventually to the Fishers area. In one of our craziest stories, he tells us how he was recruited to Purdue University and Indiana University to play college basketball on a full ride in EIGHTH GRADE!
    Collin tells us about some of the struggles he faced while playing as an IU Hoosier, including a major knee surgery that had fans requesting he transfer. He shares how he overcame that and ended his time at IU on a very high, high note!
    The episode takes a more serious tone as Collin shares about his journey after college and after leaving the basketball court. He shares about the struggle of finding an identity after leaving the basketball world, having played basketball since he was a kid.
    Collin tells us about the different financial companies he worked for and transitions into what he does currently.
    Collin currently works for Hoosier Connect as the Vice President of Partnerships.
    Hoosier Connect is the organization that works with student-athletes to navigate NIL and helps them make money from their name and image as a college athlete.
    He shares with us how he got into that career and the impact he is able to make in his position. Collin even tells us how he feels as a former athlete who was not able to take advantage of his “celebrity”.
    Chuck Crabb makes his way into this episode, baby Hartman number two gets an honorable mention, and we end the episode with Collin rubbing in our faces that he only has LinkedIn as his sole social media account (honestly, quite the accomplishment!)
    This is an episode for sports lovers, student advocates, and business-minded individuals alike.

    The Business of Being Behind the Scenes, Climbing Things No One Else Wants To, and Operating a Small Business

    The Business of Being Behind the Scenes, Climbing Things No One Else Wants To, and Operating a Small Business

    For the September episode of Mind Your Business, Podcast Master Andrew Lambert welcomed Tyler Delong into the McKee Financial Studio for a great conversation! Tyler Delong is the owner of Delong Rigging Solutions, and this type of rigging does not involve construction sites or large ships. 
    Tyler grew up in Bloomington, across the country, and around the globe. While Bloomington was always where he sent his mail, he grew up following his dad on tours for groups like KISS where his dad worked as a rigger. These experiences led to him making the decision at a very young age that he was also going to be a rigger when he grew up. He earned his BA in Theatre with minors in Telecommunications and Labor Studies from Indiana University. In 2017, he made the decision to blog a road trip across the country, and soon after his rigging career went big. 
    Tyler has spent the majority of his career working as a touring technician, primarily as the Tour Rigger/Automation Tech. His most recent touring was as a Production Manager for Feld Entertainment (for Sesame Street Live).
    Tyler shares with us fun stories from on tour, how celebrities treat their crew, what life is like on a tour bus, and how he started his business. He shares great tips on starting your own business – including how you overcome challenges that inevitably come your way – and why having a great team around you is absolutely essential. 
    Andrew gets Tyler to share a crazy tour story, talk about some of his favorite shows to work on (Mama Mia, Blue Man Group, Disney On Ice), and calls him out on bringing in a Lambert Cafe mug without ever having been there! This is a fascinating episode about a career you may never have known existed until now. Give it a listen!
