My Very First Podcast!

Bill III-my Marketing guy
My oldest son, Bill III is a marketing guy. His father (me) is a teacher and a preacher (and a football referee). Bill III is responsible for my blog, my Twitter, my LinkedIn, my Facebook, my boot camps. Without him, I'd be sending out faxes for marketing P4. Bill's father is a chemist by education, and process-oriented by nature. Bill III works for Hill Holiday, one of the best advertising agencies in the world. When Bill's father was determined to start his LEAN consulting business 6 years ago, Bill III spent hours hands-on and also on the phone (from Hong Kong at the time) teaching this old dog some new tricks. How to be a bit of a marketer.

Going into 2018, we had our usual state-of-P4 end of the year meeting over a couple of beers, and he advised me to start doing podcasts. People, he explained, don't always have time to read a blog, no matter how well intended it is. I promised him that I would do at least one in 2018.

Bill's father's gears might be slipping just a little bit. It turns out, Bill's father did do a podcast.....in 2015. The only problem was that he basically forgot to tell anyone. So now I want to fix that. 

The podcast was produced by a really cool company, Creative Safety Supply in Beaverton, OR. I was interviewed by Dan Clark, someone who sounds 1000 times better than I do, as you will see.  Indulge me if you will, and have a listen. We cover a ton of ground in 20 minutes, everything from respect for people to ownership vs. employee-ism to how managers sabotage lean progress.

Would you let me know if you like it so I can tell Bill III? Look for podcasts to come! Well, here it is: Respect for People & A3
