E282 - Bo Wernick - How to bring your ideas to reality at your local MakerSpace - NoVA Labs
In this episode, I get to speak with Bo Wernick. He's the CEO and Chief Engineer at Theta Composites. How did I meet Bo? Well, I am part of Nova labs a maker space here in Reston, Virginia. And in the space of hacking things together and making the passion of their hobbies and building stuff. Bo stepped forward and said I'd love to chat about. And as I learned, and with the conversation with him last week, he is a design engineer, a business developer, and specializing in composite structures and autonomous systems. Those are some of the things that his company does. I was totally blown away. Because these are some of the things that have jumped in and out of for the past four years. Building an Iron Man suit with foam core, and then started looking at 3d printers, then looking at all the Kickstarter projects for 3D printers which weren't going to be available for 6-10 months. But at a maker space, they already have 3d printers for you to use, and Bo has had good experience with these. I'm super excited to have this conversation around building, inventing and tinkering with Bo and share it with you. ——Connect Here!—— You can find Hacks & Hobbies on these popular social media networks: Facebook: fb.com/hacksandhobbies LinkedIn: linkedin.com/company/hacksandhobbies Instagram: instagram.com/hacksandhobbies Twitter: twitter.com/hacksandhobbies or through our website: hacksandhobbies.com

E260 - Monday Breakdown Week 25 - Epic 64-Mile bike ride adventure inside
Welcome back to another Monday breakdown, it's week #25 that means we have 27 more weeks to go in 2019. We're so close to the middle of the year! I still can't believe half the year is almost over. We've celebrated the longest day of the year on Friday, June 21. But if you live in Washington DC, the latest sunsets will start on the day after the solstice the 22nd.  The longest day also brings an essential question to light "What is the Stonehenge" Que the song from Stonehenge by Ylvis. It is a marvelous prehistoric monument built with Huge stones weighing over several tons.  There we have it the longest day of the year, so many more days and weeks to go. Lets recap on who you got to listen to last week on the podcast: Shelley Allen told us about how to organize our thoughts before we start to write our book. Quentin Allams discussed the dedication of our life's story to build our brand awareness. Falguni Katira gave us tips on how she helps gain confidence when going back to work after spending time raising our children. And finally, Andrew Katers delved into the inner workings of what it takes to be an actor, martial artist, and extremely humble.  The trailer to John Wick HEX looks impressive: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nEwjqisgGY and if you're so inclined pre-order the game for your PC or MAC: https://epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/johnwickhex/home A lot of you guys might've seen him in a favorite show where he was a prince, others have seen him saving the world one way or another. From the historic west to the futuristic time traveling to save the world. Or by fighting alien bad guys by giving them a little sneeze and infiltrate their defense mechanism. He's taught us the true meaning of finding happiness through struggle and by giving up his organs as he meets his potential donors. I mean the list can keep going on. But he's been in one part or another in your life. He's a father of two and a husband to a lovely woman. I'm sure you've probably figured out who this man was that came in my dreams. Listen to the episode to find out who it is! Saturday morning, I enjoyed an adventurous bike ride, listen to the episode to learn of all the fun things related to road biking, route mapping, and other things that could go wrong. Check out the ride on Strava here: https://www.strava.com/activities/2471747515/overview Check out the movies WonderPark and InsideOut if you haven't seen them already.

E255 - Monday breakdown week 24
Welcome back to another Monday breakdown, its week #24 that means we have 28 more weeks to go in 2019, Hacks and Hobbies is a podcast about life hacks and hobbies that I’ve tried out st one point in my life as well as some that I’m passionate about and growing them to make life enjoyable. Besides being a father of three kids and the age spread between them. There always comes a point when you want to almost automate some of the tasks so kids follow directions and we have a simpler life. But there’s a lot more to fatherhood and parenthood for that matter than just getting a kids to follow directions. It’s almost like a two way conversation and negotiation tactics that I’ve just gotta get good at. So yeah hobbies and life hacks, we’ve focused a lot of hobbies and talked to a few guests over the last 6-8 months. We’ve had the chance to listen to stories and journeys from book authors, screen writers, film producers and directors, entrepreneurs in so many industries, marketing, animal whisperers, life, business and performance couching. It’s certainly a very rich and diverse playing field. But I keep coming back to video production, beekeeping and cycling.  With cycling I keep myself strong and limber, with beekeeping I have access to local and fresh honey and video production helps me focus on story telling and getting nitty gritty with video production specific gadgets, such as sliders, cranes, cameras and lighting gear. Last week you got to hear some awesome guests with Julian Smit, David Burkus, Alan Wade and Mike Graham This week we have some amazing ones!

In this episode, I'm just going to go over some of the things coming up this end of the year 2018. It is December 2018, and in a few weeks, we'll have a brand new year and brand new plans. Now I had put out a question a couple of weeks ago. And I was like, I'm planning for 2019. Is it too late? And people were like, no, it's never too late, and some of them are like, I'm already planning for the second quarter of 2019. I was like, wow, that's amazing. See, I've never planned too far ahead, and that's probably why I am where I am, Or that's why I'm not where I want to be. So planning and making goals and goal setting is some of the critical things that you can do.  Check out WordPress on http://wordpress.org  Dreamhost: https://mbsy.co/rdtQv  ——Sponsorship—— This podcast brought to you by our generous sponsors.

In this episode, I'm gonna get a lot of things off my chest. It's been pretty crazy for the past few days. So one of the things I accepted last week was the 30 days Video Challenge, 30 days of videos on LinkedIn. And my focus is on creating content, all about how to use your smartphone for video production. And there was an episode a couple months ago on the podcast about some of the tips and tricks that I talked about at the LinkedIn local Nova event. So I wanted to talk about some of the fundamental things behind something like this. So what I mean by this, what do I mean by that I'm creating content we're talking about tips talking about tips and and solutions is I find a lot of joy in it, I find that I'm helping and I love helping people and to help people to help figure out how to use devices that they already carry in their hands how to use it better Well, there's what's more join that everybody's got one so the more I think about it, the more on a perfect it and I'm might be going the wrong way a recorded several videos that I'm myself are discounting them for not being up to par to my own arbitrary standards. And I just want to focus on like the preparation that you go that the nice to go in to create this content. That preparation is almost like post production right, the execution is easy, but to find the time to strategize to figure out okay, which topic goes first, which could topic goes second, all of these things are they come to you later on as you start digging. So I'm looking to dig deep in myself and understand what it is, and how it is, I want to convey this message. http://twitter.com/hacksandhobbies http://fb.com/hacksandhobbies http://instagram.com/hacksandhobbies
