You Gotta' Start Somewhere

Welcome to Blue Collar StartUp the podcast. 

Our Mission is Simple: To facilitate the growth and development of Blue Collar businesses. We will showcase REAL Blue Collar businesses in interviews, and use these stories to help educate and empower the next generation of trades workers to become Blue Collar business owners. 


In our first episode Derek Foster and Mike Nelson discuss what the podcast is about, who it is for, and what is behind it all. 

We (MIke) did make a couple mistakes while recording so our audio is a little off on this one. We also discovered that Mike should not be allowed to chew gum during recording. As the title says though: "You gotta' start somewhere", and we look forward to improving the quality of the recording as we go.
