In this episode of The BOB Happy Hour, Dave Plaza of Fire Pigs Designs saddles up to the bar with us to talk about how he is coping with the current state of business and how he is planning for life after the shut down.
In this episode you will learn:
- Fire Pigs Designs can make medical Face Masks with free shipping, contact Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-270-1287.
- It’s called the Service Industry for a reason, not to serve ourselves but find a need during challenging times and SERVE OTHERS.
- Use this downtime to review your mission statement, strategic plan, and review and improve processes – think about how you can be more efficient and where you want to focus your company for the long term; use this time to do the things you are normally too busy to think about.
- Work with your suppliers to place future order NOW. When things get back to normal there will be a massive influx of demand that will create supply chain bottlenecks, help your suppliers and their suppliers plan for the aftermath now.

“Who wants an Orange Whip? Orange Whip? Orange Whip? Three Orange Whips!” No fruit was harmed in the making of this “Juicy” IPA. In fact, there is no “juice” in this IPA. Rather, it is a real IPA that benefits from heaps of El Dorado and Mosaic Hops which give it it’s succulent aromas and flavors of orange, tangerine and grapefruit. We think this IPA predicates Juiciness! Uh, and if you don’t know, now you know.”
