Inside-Out Customs ,

John, Owner of Inside-Out Customs

Hey guys,
I’ve worked on a few of Nick’s work vehicles and am close friends with one of his guys, Mike. I recently started listening to the podcast, working my way through the episodes. There are so many similarities with the custom car world and custom home building. Plenty of awesome nuggets in there so far between scheduling, pricing, knowing your worth/value just to name a few. My shop specializes in custom car interior/upholstery work with sub categories in auto/truck accessories and audio. Certainly enjoying the variety of “time in the trades” between you all, old school approaches to new outlooks and how to incorporate these things into being a Modern Craftsman. Also finding the the approaches to hire, train and find skilled labor to be valuable topics as my trade is dying off as well. I’ll be continuing to follow your journeys and possibly have some questions to ask in the future. Thank you for what you are doing!

Hi guys, me again.😁 thanks for the hat.

Great podcast guys, I love and I’m telling everybody about the podcast.

I loved Wade Wheeler, he was good, the conversation was amazing and just proves how ignorant we are with finances, we just need to dive into this thing, Tyler, keep your company as you want, grow as you think you grow.

RemodelGC ,

Great podcasts boys!

Just found you guys a few weeks ago listening to as many episodes as I have time. I’m a one man show remodeling to flipping so love the contractor talk. Keep up the good work! Thanks!
