Interviews By Company: "Future Now, Inc."
The founder and CEO of the Men’s Wearhouse is still at the helm after more than 35 years. Back then, he put up his own sign with a 100-foot extension cord and sold sport coats for $25. Today he has more than 1200 stores and 15,000 employees, but it hasn’t been a straight shot to the top. Like any entrepreneur, he’s made tough choices, he’s gone to super-human lengths for customers and employees. He’s talking to us now, and he’s telling stories about the adventure. Russ visits with a man he calls “the Chuck Norris of men’s apparel.” It’s a great story.
With so many exercise options available, how does a fitness enthusiast differentiate his company to result in THIS level of success? It might be an issue of passion, but he’s also very focused on his vision. And he’s talking to US! Esther Steinfeld Freedman visits with the founder of DEFINE Body & Mind, former competitive diver Hank Richardson.
Can you run a retail operation completely off the grid? Dan Bretch has composting toilets, collects rainwater, generates his own power and, yes, lives completely off the grid. He has a greenhouse, a butterfly garden and an art gallery. And he also runs the non-general General Store; it’s off the power grid too. Russ interviews Dan Bretch, a “sustainable” man who does it all.
Leisa Holland-Nelson interviews second-generation BusinessMaker Kathie Edwards, president & CEO of Westpark Communications. Kathie shares advice for young aspiring entrepreneurs.
