    The Business of Being Batman's Batman

    The Business of Being Batman's Batman

    The Production House Studios was beyond excited to welcome in the December guest.  Michael Uslan, best known for his work with the Batman franchise and multiple partnerships with DC Comics, joined us from his L.A. studio to discuss what it means to be "Batman's Batman."   Michael shares his amazing story of discovering comics, why he was determined to create a college course about comics, and his entry into the film world all while being focused on the Batman franchise.  
    Michael's advice to anyone starting a business or wanting to hit a high goal is priceless.  The stories of interacting with executives, many of which ignored or insulted his pitches, demonstrate perseverance, focus, and drive that many people don't often embrace and works as the blueprint of what business and personal growth should be. With heartfelt and funny stories of behind-the-scenes moments; including how Stan Lee moved from a once comic book idol to a business partner, can't be missed.  
     

    This episode covers if Michael ever figures out who Miranda Lambert really is, pushing through the frustrations of dealing with nipples in one iteration of the Batsuit, to excitedly talking about the new chapters of the Batman franchise, including the Batmobile about to launch its animated series, the love and protection Michael shares should be something that all entrepreneurs strive to achieve.

    The Business of Smoking or Non-Smoking in Small Town Cigar Shops

    The Production House Studios was a privileged guest in Michael Fisher's own The Briar & The Burley's smoking lounge.
    Andrew and Michael helped themselves to some good cigars and bourbon while discussing the age-old question of smoking or non-smoking.
    Growing up in Michigan, Michael came to town to attend Indiana University. After sampling around in several career fields, he found a great hobby in pipes and cigars and opened his own shop, which is celebrating its 50th year in business.  
    Listen in to learn how Michael overcame the new tobacco laws and restrictions that began in Indiana.
    One of his greatest challenges, besides providing good air-quality to his customers, has been the Internet. Michael describes how online sales are turning people away from the old-fashioned store shopping and how his customer service and employees go above and beyond any traditional website experience. 
     The Briar & The Burley has seen a lot of changes in Bloomington's downtown scenery and shops.
    You will not want to miss this episode full of name-drops and exquisite ideas for a Mind Yo' Cigar... Coming Soon?

    The Business of Feeding Our Community for 40 Years in Creative Ways

    The Business of Feeding Our Community for 40 Years in Creative Ways

    The Production House Studios welcomed in Julio Alonso and Jake Bruner on this fall crisp day to discuss their work with Bloomington’s own, Hoosier Hills Food Bank. The Hoosier Hills Food Bank (HHFB) has been keeping our neighbors fed for 40 years. 
    Jake and Julio have had the pleasure of working with Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, Community Kitchen, Pantry 279, and the Boys and Girls Club to ensure our community families are receiving healthy meals at their dinner tables.  
    One of the biggest challenges in working with Food Banks is meeting your supply to the demand. In 2020, HHFB received an outpour of donations from the community, and in the last year alone served 1.4 million pounds of produce! That’s a lot of broccoli! To ensure they were meeting all members of the community listen in and learn how HHFB is branching out into alternative ways of delivering food when donations are just not enough. 
    Gone are the days of the stigma surrounding Food Banks and feeding the “needy”. Poverty has been an issue since the Dark Ages but listen in as Julio and Jake work to navigate the issues in our community.  
    Wes, are you listening? Turn down Miranda Lambert and get back to work! It’s time for the Ruby Anniversary video premiere of the HHFB!

    Mind Yo' Business S5:E09 - The Business of Alumni Growth, Life Lessons from Camp, and the Power of Networking

    Mind Yo' Business S5:E09 - The Business of Alumni Growth, Life Lessons from Camp, and the Power of Networking

    The Production House Studios was buzzing after we met with Eric Behrman, a well-known IU Alumni leader. Originally from a small town in Southern Indiana, Eric came to Bloomington after working as 4-H Youth Agent and became the Monroe County Extension Agent. From these experiences Eric's passion grew into the connectivity between human beings through social interactions.  Eric's growth within the IU Alumni Relations Office led to trust among multiple donors and their families and led to generations of students becoming part of the growing university. One incident left Eric floored when an alumni member hosted a Student Recruitment event without telling his wife, she walked in to quite a surprise. 
    Eric shares fantastic stories tied to the beginnings of Straight No Chaser, meeting Michael Uslan, and navigating the alumni's discrepancies with the firing of then famous coach Bob Knight.  His belief in staying connected is seen by the many alumni officers and chapter leaders that still interact with him today, even after he and they have left their positions.  This important network allows Eric to still help people living all over the world as they decide how to get involved with university activities. 
    If you've lived in Bloomington long enough, you will have heard about Eric's daughter, Jill, whose life was taken too early on a morning bike ride. In this episode we discuss the wonderful gift Bloomington has been given with Jill's House. Here we learn about its origin story and the intergenerational preschool they now have within.  The conversation within episode is filled with passion and advice.  It will leave you wanting to learn even more the next time you see Eric. 
    Did someone say Miranda Lambert? Eric has a connection which may finally lead us to an in-person meeting with her.  
    Miranda, can you hear Mind Yo' Business calling?

    The Business of Sincere Friendships, Wedding Planning, and Juggling Family Life

    The Business of Sincere Friendships, Wedding Planning, and Juggling Family Life

    The Production House Studios was a flood of enthusiasm from our guests, Christina Rockett and Michelle Suttile.
    From a humble start in wedding planning to venturing into a podcast these two women are thirsty for growth.
    Branching out right after Covid brought many life changing events for everyone, but for Michelle and Christina, they began not 1, but 2 new business ventures and a strong friendship.
    Navigating through county ordinances and business strategy, this dynamic duo shares their beginnings and merge of businesses.  
    Between working multiple jobs, building a business career, and working through family challenges; these women explain the ups and downs of growing their professionalism in the community. They also explain how they've overcome stressful wedding situations, finding the right venues for accommodations, and hiring new staff to help them manage their valuable time. One event in particular involved quite a debacle: slippery dance floor, cars stuck in the mud, and managing a drunken guest. 
    While we are unsure if Miranda Lambert can be the next wedding singer at an event; Andrew announces his own services to ordain weddings with press credentials and his own parking pass.
