As a soldier in the US Army, Mike Merzke found himself making rudimentary furniture for his fellow soldiers while deployed to Iraq. His making hobby made life a little more comfortable for the soldiers away from home. Now, as Mike nears retirement from the Army, he is building his former hobby into a business — Merzke Custom Woodworking. Join us as we talk to Mike about:

  • Viewing mistakes as practice instead of failures
  • Smart shop expansion and the right time to buy new tools
  • Using social media for business portability
  • Expectations as a roadblock to success
