Sean Mabey – Director of Small Business Strategy and Senior Vice President at Wells Fargo Bank
Sean Mabey is back again! He is the Director of Small Business Strategy with Wells Fargo and is always thinking about small business. Today he is with us to talk about stress, and how it changes entrepreneurs. Stress is a vital part of any start up, and the way entrepreneurs handle it is a critical piece determining the success of a company. Sean’s take is different, as he argues that stress is in fact good for us! Very interesting take on a topic we all know too well.
Bruce Gaither – Founder of No Fly Cone and Shark Tank Contestant
Bruce Gaither is the inventor of the No Fly Cone, but he says, “My wife Becky inspired the creation of this tool. When she was pregnant, the thought of using toxic sprays or poison to combat the fly problem was not an option.” So off he went to invent a better mouse trap, er fly killer. The non-toxic glue dome covers the source of the problem. Dog poop. Bruce tells us about being on Shark Tank, how it effected sales, how he got Seth MacFarlane on with him, and what is up for his company today.
