                        Comments on the Renegade episode

                        Thank you for the in-depth look at Renegade, the animation studio you covered.

                        I particularly enjoyed the detailed information about how the studio is run. Your in-depth questions regarding the cost of the projects and the deadlines required to complete them was appreciated.

                        Most interviews never go into that much detail. It was very insightful. And your host has the curiosity and enthusiasm to bring that information out in any interviewee.

                        Can you do a segment on an ad agency or design studio?


                        There are many other stories within Professional Services

                        Hi Allan -

                        You are a very special person to take time to write.  Thank you.  And thank you for your synopsis.  Hattie can't help herself.  She loves people; she loves business;  and she loves to discover people who are living a good life because they followed their dreams and started a business and became successful.  The people who agree to be interviewed also agree to tell the truth, to go in-depth, and to share their wisdom about life and business.  These stories are their gifts back to all of us.  It is their legacy. 

                        Yet, for Hattie and me, this is our passion.  Let us all study those who are creative and are giving back.  What role models for us all and for our children.  So much oft television is about those who exploit and they can only teach us  all the wrong things.

                        Where are the shows about creativity and value?  

                        Now, the Renegade Animation people are among the nicest on earth.  They do what is right, not what is expedient.  I hope others learn as much from them as we did!    

                        Now, given your thoughts about an episode about an ad agency or design studio, would you do me a small favor and take a look at an episode we did about Zubi Advertising & Design.  Mama Zubi is also another very  fine person and what a story!  Then to follow-up within that industry, there is this page.

                        On design studios, let me suggest two.  Here is an episode about one of the best industrial design studios on earth.  Meet Sohrab Vossoughi.

                        Then there is Ron Altoon and Jim Porter of Altoon & Porter.   They are architects -- but that is still within professional services.  Ron Altoon was the volunteer president of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

                        I hope that helps a little.  If you ever have a business that you believe should be considered for an episode of the show, please do not hesitate to send their contact information!  They'll get on the list from which their local community selects who is next!

                        Allan, do you have your own business?  If you do, please be sure to register within the new site!

                        Hattie joins me in wishing you well in whatever you do.
