Hello Metalworking Nation! After a short break, we are so excited to be back in the MakingChips studio. On today’s episode we’ll discuss the importance of creating routine processes in order to take you and your business to the next level.

“Anyone that’s a manufacturing leader knows… When you own a business that consumes you 24/7 .. you’re dreaming about it, you’re thinking about it when you go to sleep .. it’s just the way that it is.” – Jason Zenger

Later on in the episode we’ll discuss balancing your work life with your personal life, and what steps you can take to make sure the two don’t conflict. In manufacturing news, we talk about “Trumpenomics” and why we should re-evaluate the cost of domestic vs. offshore production. We’ll also discuss starting meetings on a high note, news with Carr Machine & Tool, and a certain German food that Jason specializes in making.
