All right I’m with Greg Wittstock. Some of you may recognize him from the Tv Show "Pond Stars." Greg is the number one manufacturer in North America of pond products. We just got done doing a podcast, and Greg literally told us how he went from having absolutely nothing to owning a $60 million a year corporation with 95 employees. He has been in the Fortune 500 top fastest growing companies four years in a row.
Thank you for coming on. Today we talked about something that I think is a critical element. We talked about manufacturing, distribution, leadership management, and your new academy. You touched base on were how you grow from nothing to something and gave us four strong points in leadership and management. Can you go over that with us?
Greg: When I started off, I was in the field working directly with the guys. Then I developed the 20 step way of building water features and that was our system. Stan: So you manufacture all the products for Aquascape, but you also do installation and training. Greg: Well there’s three parts of my business. I’m the main manufacturer in North America, and probably in the world, that builds ponds every day. We manufacture water feature equipment. The second part of the business is to supply. So we’ll be manufactured to ship out through a wholesale distribution that handles retailers. The third area is very important in my heart because in my passion and hobby for 20-25 years of hobbyist is to train. Stan: Greg I want to thank you because I want to direct everybody. We’re not going to be able to cover what we touched on in the podcast. It was absolutely phenomenal. If you guys are serious about taking your business to the next level, Greg actually went through an outline step by step the levels of success he achieved. He went over his management models. I also want to direct all of you guys out there to his YouTube channels which is: Aquascape ponds and his website: www.AquascapeInc.com So you probably recognize from his TV show "Pond Stars", but look for his podcast to come out soon because I absolutely loved what we covered.
