Well, we’ve done it again. We’ve gone through an entire month listening to Graham and Ashkahn share their floaty knowledge. In any case, here are a few of our favorites from the month of February. We’re almost at episode 100 (in which we have something special planned), if you’ve been enjoying the podcast please take a few seconds and leave us a 5 star review on iTunes. It would mean a lot to us!
It seems like every float center owner when building out confronts how much of their own construction to do at the outset. Graham and Ashkahn sort of spin this idea on its head though, and break down the practical limitations on relying on yourself for this kind of work, which turns into an in-depth conversation on resource utilization and time management.
It’s really a must listen to anyone thinking that they can rely on themselves for a lot of this work when, in reality, that’s usually not the best course of action.
This is way less an episode about getting advice and much more an episode of Graham and Ashkahn basically describing their affection for each other. They even make the comparison that it’s a lot like listening to a married couple talk about the secrets to a successful long-term relationship.
Aside from all of that, they talk about the logistics of what to look for in a business partner and about the kinds of expectations to have, which, if you’re looking for your float soul-mate, taking notes here is not a bad place to start.
Hearing about Ashkahn and Jake’s trip to China was absolutely surreal. They’re basically modern day Marco Pollo and his dad (I’ll leave it to you to decide which one is Jake and which one is Ashkahn).
This trip really brought to light just how little we know in the Western world about the Chinese float industry and how much there still is to learn. Especially with how they’re focusing on floating as a feature in their medical practices. It’ll be exciting to see how our Eastern neighbors develop their industry as time goes on.
This is one of those “everyone wants to know the answer to this question but it turns out to be way more complicated than it seems” questions. Naturally, we’d all like to have a straightforward metric for gauging interest and marketing. Graham and Ashkahn help break down this concept and clear up some of the confusion surrounding it.
The guys lay out a lot of info about Float On’s customers and what their return rate is (as well as how they calculate that). Something every float center should listen to.
Gotta love that German accent by Ashkahn in the intro…
This is one of those seemingly simple questions that gets overlooked when talking about operating a float center. It seems like a lot of people have a difficult time balancing this between satisfying their customers and maintaining their schedule properly. Unfortunately, there’s no silver bullet. It’s just one of those things that is gonna be different from float center to float center.
Graham and Ashkahn do what they do best and break this down and hopefully illustrate the nuances of this question and the important things to consider when planning your schedule.
Aaaaannnndddd…. That’s it. Take a look at these bad boys and give them a listen. If any of your favorites from this list didn’t make the cut, let us know (we won’t add them to the list or anything, but it’s nice to know when we’re being huge disappointments).
