This show focuses on the business side of woodworking. I share how I am struggling on which path to take.   Trying to be a jack of all woodworking usually does not translate into a longterm, successful business.  If net profit is important to you, I think it important to focus in on just a few products as part of your woodworking business (at least at first).  I break down what I learned from building up a successful law practice and how that applies to building up a successful woodworking business.

I am not about to let this COVID-19 get me down.  Recently, I decided to get into my shop and work on something.  I had heard that saw mills and manufacturing plants were reducing production or closing to honor the social distancing requirements.  Then I started to think about saving my money anyways, just in case things got worse.  Still trying to stay positive, I thought of 6 things you can do in your shop for free to lift your spirits.  Some of these things I should have already done.

So after 5 years of silence, I am finally back.  I wish I had been podcasting this whole time, but life sometimes throws you interesting curve balls.   In this show, I share what happened to me and why I had to put podcasting on hold.  I also share a big change in my life that has allowed me to start podcasting again.   I wrap it all up with an explanation of what the future holds for me and the podcast.
