How A Foster Kid Built A Franchise Empire With A 25,000 Square Foot Bounce House

September 20, 2022

Antonio Nieves started out as a foster kid in Las Vegas, NV. He's not even 30, but he has already built an amazing brand called "Funbox."

Funbox is a 25,000 square foot bounce house built for young and old alike. This isn't your typical bounce house rental you'd rent from a local business. This is a parking lot sized structure designed and engineered by Antonio and his team in China. You need to book a day with the family at Funbox, you will not be disappointed!

Funbox is great for kids to get off of their screens, get moving, and enjoy the outdoors.

Finding Your Entrepreneurial Voice, Advice From A Jerry Springer Show Producer

September 12, 2022

As a young adult Reena Friedman Watts took advantage of an opportunity to intern for one of the most popular daytime TV shows of the 1990s, "The Jerry Springer Show." This eventually catapulted her into producing other shows and eventually her own podcast with her Dad, "Better Call Daddy." On it, she even interviewed Jerry Springer himself. 

On episode 56, we talk about how to find your voice as an entrepreneur and get it out there for the World to hear.  How you should really strive to open up emotionally, help others, listen, and be open to discomfort. 

At the end of it all, business is about helping, inspiring, and improving the lives of others. If you come at it from that angle, success is right around the corner.
