I can and I will.Sold last company for $650M, Chad Sahley, Founder of Social BlueBook is on the Positive Phil Podcast

Like some of the greats in the industry Chad started his company out of his garage with a single editing system. Over the next ten years he built that company into Hieroglyphic Productions, which became one of Disney’s largest vendors producing branded content for shows like Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place and Take Two with Phineas & Ferb. He also directed many A-list celebrities including Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Ben Stiller, Muhammad Ali, and Michael J. Fox.
In 2007 he became one of the early adopters on YouTube, launching an original show that quickly became one of the top comedy channels. He loved this new space for many reasons, but mostly because it leveled the playing field for people who simply wanted to create content without playing the “Hollywood” game. YouTube was also the place where he became fast friends with some of the top creators out there.
In 2012, Hieroglyphic Productions was acquired by Maker Studios where Chad served as Vice President of Production, helping to build the company before it was sold two years later to Disney for $650 Million.
After leaving Maker, Chad could see there was a better way to gauge (and share) the true value of his fellow creators. So in 2014 Chad founded Social Bluebook, a company devoted to helping social media creators build their business and brand value.

Focus on the good.Bill Masters is an Old School Inventor and Entrepreneur-Part 2

William Masters is an engineer, inventor, designer, manufacturing entrepreneur and business advisor/mentor. He holds the first 3D printing patent.,[1] along with patents for other 3D printing technologies (piezo transducer, extrusion, lithography, surface tension, and pin array) and computer assisted manufacturing. He founded Perception Kayaks,[2] at one time the largest kayak manufacturer in the U.S.,[3][4] and has served as a small business delegate to the Reagan and Clinton administrations.[5]

Masters is widely recognized as a pioneer in kayak manufacturing[6] and for his success in connecting whitewater enthusiasts with his kayaks.[7][8] The Wall Street Journal, in the August 15, 1998 edition of its Southeastern Journal, described Masters as “an intense, hands-on tinkerer who isn’t shy about touting his accomplishments.”[9] His innovations in kayak manufacturing, including rotational molding and working in engineered plastics instead of fiberglass, revolutionized the sport and recreational kayak markets.[7]
In the mid 1970s, Masters began work on a revolutionary manufacturing process, one which he compared to using a straw to deposit “spit wads.” “When you shoot a lot of wads,” he explained, “they begin to take shape. If you can control the direction of the wads and the motion of the device shooting them, you can produce any desired shape.”[10]

Masters filed a patent for his Computer Automated Manufacturing Process and System on July 2, 1984 (US 4665492)).[11] This filing is on record at the USPTO as the first 3D printing patent in history; it was the first of three patents belonging to Masters that laid the foundation for the 3D printing systems used today.[12][13]

Masters introduced his 3D printing technology at CAD/CAM conferences in the late 1980s[12] with little success. Undeterred, he founded Perception Systems to handle research and development of his technology. In 1992, Perception Systems changed its name to Ballistic Particle Manufacturing (BPM)[14] and received funding from Palmetto Seed Capital, a state funded South Carolina venture capital group by headed by former South Carolina Governor Carroll A. Campbell, Jr..[15]

BPM launched its Personal Modeler 2100 in 1996, a device that used a computer aided design (CAD) system to manufacture an object of any shape by “shooting droplets of plastic.”[16] During this time, Masters was forced to part ways with BPM to focus on his growing kayak business.[4]

The company, responding to pressure from investors and competitors, shipped and installed sixteen Personal Modelers in beta to customers and distributors. After eight years of product development, the technology was still unreliable, and most of the companies who received the Personal Modelers shipped them back and turned their attention elsewhere.

Negative publicity resulting from the product introduction proved to be fatal, which had struggled to develop its market. BPM would go out of business in 1997,[15] but the corporate entity still exists.

Two other American inventors developed 3D printing technology that achieved commercial viability in additive manufacturing: Charles W. Hull, who invented stereo lithography (filed Aug 8, 1984), and S. Scott Crump, who patented fused deposition modeling (filed Oct 30, 1989). Both of these men filed their patent applications after Bill Masters (filed Jul 2, 1984), making him the true father of 3D printing.

Masters’s original 3D printing patent expired in 2004.

Perception Kayaks
As a student at Clemson University, Masters received a broken kayak as payment for fixing a friend’s car. He repaired the kayak and his workmanship attracted the attention of other kayakers, who quickly asked him to repair their kayaks.[17]

A whitewater enthusiast from the first time he went down the Chattooga River, Masters launched his business with $50 in capital.[6] Over the course of ten days in 1972, he completed his first handmade kayak in the back of an old mortuary. The one-off drew interest from other river runners and Masters sold it for $90.[18]

In August 1974, Masters launched a new kayak manufacturing company, Fiberglass Technology, in Liberty, South Carolina. The company produced an average of 150 boats per year.[19]

In 1976, Masters changed the name of the company to Perception Kayaks. Within five years, this operation would become the largest kayak manufacturer in the United States.[20] As Perception grew with the kayak market, it expanded operations internationally to Chester, England in 1982 and New Zealand in 1986. Masters developed and registered 30+ patents in boat design, plastics manufacturing, computers and heat transfer and used these patents to keep Perception at the forefront of the industry.[21]

He realized early on that customer interaction would drive sales growth. During the 1990s, Perception introduced various ways to interact with prospects and customers, including a professional call center, an interactive website, and two technical field representatives to promote the sport of kayaking through education.[22]

This early pilot program introduced kayaking to novices by offering free coaching. As Masters noted, “Coaching from a skilled trainer, and the opportunity to try any of 30 kayak designs, helps people push past their doubts and get out onto the water, paddling closer to a future kayak purchase.”[23]

Perception continued to grow throughout the 80s and into the 90s, producing successful lines of kayaks and canoes. As early as 1984, however, Masters had begun to speak openly about vacating his role as President of the company he founded.[24]

In 1987, Perception’s sales manager, Joe Pulliam, left the company to work for Blue Hole Canoe and eventually founded Dagger Canoe. Dagger emerged as the first serious competition for Perception, although Pulliam had a two-year non-compete agreement that initially kept Dagger out of kayaks and in canoes. In 1990 Dagger introduced its first kayak, the Response.

Masters would eventually exit Perception altogether when he sold the company to Crescent Capital, which then acquired Dagger, and both companies were put under the Watermark Paddlesports holding company. Watermark was eventually acquired by Confluence Holdings, an industry platform consolidating multiple kayak and canoe brands.[9]

In 2017, Masters was inducted into the International Whitewater Hall of Fame in the Pioneer Category. The ceremony was hosted in October, 2017 alongside the ACA National Paddlesports Conference in Bryson City, North Carolina, USA.

Peer Advisory Groups (aka Forums)
Bill Masters is a firm believer in educating, the development of entrepreneurial skills, and mentoring, especially young entrepreneurs.[25] He gives back by dedicating his time to numerous committees and boards, including Greenville Technical College Entrepreneurial Forum and writing a book to create and advocate for peer to peer advisory groups, Focus Forums™. He has recently served as Chair of South Carolina Research Authority, on the SC Council on Competitiveness Composites Cluster (2006), Liberty Fellows (2005), Board of Directors for SC Launch (2005), Furman University Foundation Board (2004) and Chair, Higher Education Task Force of The Governors Map Commission. Masters is a member of Young Presidents Organization (YPO), World Presidents Organization (WPO) and L3. He served on the YPO International Forum Advisory Board (YPO) and Chapter Forum Officer WPO.

Bill Masters: An Entrepreneur who Turned Spitballs into 3D Printing

The Ups and Downs of Creating a Major Invention and Knowing What to Do with It
When you think of 3D printing, images of space-age shapes and maybe even a guy named Chuck Hull probably get conjured up. Hull: the man widely dubbed as ‘the father of 3D printing.’ It’s true Hull – now 75 and still working as chief technology officer of 3D Systems – did patent a 3D invention in 1986. But, little do people know that two years earlier in the heat and humidity of Greenville, SC, the idea had already been born. By entrepreneur, Bill Masters.

Masters grew up in Easley, South Carolina and through himself into science and engineering as a kid. This passion followed him to college, where he studied electrical engineering while working a 40-hour week on the side. Today, he still resides (and invents!) in South Carolina, but is instead widely known as the father of modern kayaking – founding and running Perception Kayaks from 1975 to 1998. In fact, he has recently been inducted to the International Whitewater Hall of Fame in the Pioneer category for his efforts. It was on the banks of a kayaking trip – the Chattooga River under the 76 bridge on the South Carolina side to be exact – Masters began thinking about spit balls that eventually led him to 3D printing.

“I was sleeping on the side of the the river on my kayak looking up at the stars and I realized if you could take one star and make that your seed point, you could add stars from any direction until you had the shape you wanted,” he remembers of the time. “Similarly, if you shoot a spit ball down and it sticks, you can then shoot multiple down on top of it. They stick and stick and stick until eventually you can build something with them.”

This was in the 1970s, and it took him a few years to develop the idea and save enough to afford the patent. But by 1984, his “Computer Automated Manufacturing Process and System” was ready. He filed U.S. Patent 4,665,492 A on July 2nd – two full years before Hull patented his “Apparatus for Production of Three-Dimensional Objects by Stereolithography”. In fact, it was the first of five patents belonging to Masters that laid the foundation for the 3D printing systems used today. According to Masters, his patents still have parts that noone has done today.

VALUES BASED LEADERSHIP
How a True Leader Puts People, Organization, and Community First
We all face countless decisions throughout our careers. The specific circumstances that call us to lead will be different, but the core dilemmas and ethical challenges are very similar. Faced with these challenges, each of us must decide if we will follow our ego-centered inclinations or lead for the good of everyone whose lives we touch? Will we endanger or impair those around us to satisfy our own self-interest, or will we lead in a manner that is true to our values?

In his inspiring book Lead True, Jeff Thompson, MD, has masterfully compiled stories from the business, healthcare, and education fields, illustrating how a diverse group of leaders has employed value-based leadership and succeeded. These case studies offer dynamic, living narratives that demonstrate ways in which a leader, fueled by personal values, can change people, organizations, and even entire industries.

What sets this book apart is the interweaving of the author’s personal leadership story in healthcare to the insights from start-ups, mid-career, and top-level leaders—people who have proven that values-driven leadership is not simply a noble idea but one that actually works in practice. The author artfully shows that the goal of leadership is not to move one individual ahead of all others. When you lead true, you can move everyone forward—people, organizations, and communities—finding the best route for all.

WeSpire says its clients can build unique benefit programs and create positive work environments by tapping options from categories that include recycling programs, health and well-being, and work/life balance, among others. In the end, the companies that partner with WeSpire can improve workplace culture and also save money in variety of ways, the firm said.

The news comes on the heels of the company’s $3 million Series A round of funding in January. The investors in the round included CommonAngels, LaunchPad Venture Group, Pan-Asia, and Clean Energy Venture Group.

Recently, WeSpire named Product of the Year by Environmental Leader and runs its employee engagement programs at over 20 global corporations including eBay, Unilever, MGM Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, and EMC.

When her son almost died eating a cashew, Susan Hunt Stevens had a rude awakening. It eventually led her to find her life’s calling: making sustainability accessible.

In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision. Author Gary Sirak, The American Dream Revisited is on the show.

THE AMERICAN DREAM REVISITED
“The American Dream is dead,” said the young man at the table behind me.

I was sitting in a coffee shop and sipping my mocha.

“Between all the student loans and the job market it’s more like the American Disaster,” another voice chimed in.

“Yeah. Tell me about it. My credit cards are almost maxed out and all I do is go to school, work, sleep, and do homework. I’m barely hanging on. Forget trying to climb up,” I heard a third person say.

It was at this point I decided to sneak a peak. There were four people in their early 20s sitting around the table. Three were animated, passionate, and in agreement about the bleakness of their futures. But there was one who hadn’t spoke.

He hadn’t joined in the conversation yet. He sat quietly, eyes staring down at the cup he cradled in his hands. His thumbs were tracing lines around the rim. He had just opened his mouth to speak as I turned back around.

“I mean…I don’t know. Yeah, I’ve got some debt but I’m also getting a good education. I’m not really afraid to work hard and there’re good jobs out there. So…yeah. I mean, I feel pretty good about the future.”

I wrote The American Dream Revisited for him.

There’s so much doom and gloom in the media about how bad it is, or is going to get. But that’s not the whole story. There’s a positive side. I know there is. Not only have I seen it first hand, but I’ve helped others see it and achieve it too. I’ve spent my entire career giving countless people the tools they need to explore the opportunities and possibilities of their lives and succeed.

The American Dream Revisited: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Results is my response to the conversation I overheard. It’s the true stories of 13 different people, from all walks of life – from a South African Indian, to an Old Order Amish rebel, to a Holocaust survivor – who achieved their American Dream.

So please, join me on a journey that starts in 1865, has all sorts of stops (including a Puerto Rican street gang and the White House), and is still very much alive today. It’s my hope that these stories will inspire you to seek and find your own American Dream. And together – you can achieve it.

Oh – and because I was serious when I said I wrote American Dream Revisited for the quiet guy at the coffee shop – I’ve partnered with Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges (www.ofic.org/smr/americandreamrevisited) to set up a scholarship. 20% of all profits made from the American Dream Revisited will go directly to supporting the American Dream Revisited Scholarship.

If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way. Ambitious Quotes and Readings from Positive Phil –

“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so let us all be thankful.”
— Buddha
