What happens when you put the right #mind, the right #values, the right #WorkEthic in front of the right #apprenticeship and a world of opportunity?
#IanMacGregor has had a 50+ year career as an #engineer, #entrepreneur, #businessbuilder, #inventor, #investor... it has led to a crescendo of a world-shaping master craftsman of an entrepreneur.
If you think I am exaggerating, check out the museum of antique #tools and #machinery that he has conceived, constructed and curated in a fantastic subterranean concrete structure in Alberta's mystic foothills.
Or the 9.5 #Billion dollar, #First-of-a-Kind, #Bitumen to #Diesel plus #CarbonCapture #refining complex that he and his partners at #NorthWestCapital completed.
If you're an engineering nerd like I pretend to be sometimes, this is like witnessing a real life version of Iron Man or Batman at work. The guy still boxes on the weekends!
#acquiring existing businesses with special points to the current owners contemplating #selling
Capturing additional #riskpremium as an entrepreneur through engineering knowledge
#Managing risk, #partnerships and identifying true expertise
Future looking thoughts on what #Alberta can do to remain #prosperous
Plus probably the best #rapidfire session I've recorded including a surprising take down of #DiscountCashflowAnalysis of all things
This is what forward motion as an entrepreneur looks like. Build it deliberately and quietly, stay committed, focus on the things you're good at and enjoy, apply what you learned on previous work, but most of all, don't stop!
Ian shared that someone once described him as "not the easiest guy in the world to work for", but I think he's probably one of a very small handful of people on this earth that I actually would relish working for.
I loved doing this episode, and truly hope you enjoy and get as much out of it as I did.

Did you know that #timber is the only renewable, carbon-capturing, structural building material in the world?
Both Andrew and Anthony will be speaking at #Ecobuild today and tomorrow about all things timber, and why we are so passionate about timber construction. Come and say hello if you are here too! Graphic: @yugonkim

This is the latest Pasture Painting we have facilitated in Auckland in #victoriapark. It’s a no dig way to turn passive green space into a vibrant ecosystem both above and below ground. This one was sown less than 2 weeks ago. The ground was prepared by laying down black plastic for 6 weeks then organic seeds were dusted with beneficial microbes before they were sown into organic compost. Over the next year this space will increase the carbon sequestration capacity within its boundary and provide masses of safe food for pollinators. Now is a great time to create one yourself. If your keen to make a difference by using this tool then go to our website www.fortheloveofbees.co.nz and find out how easy they are to make. #joinin #smallactionstogethercanmakeadifference #biologicalsystems #carboncapture #citysafeforpollinators #citysafeforbees #citybeecollaboration

H.R. 5031. Bipartisan climate legislation.
Representatives John Faso (R-N.Y.) and Dan Lipinski (D-Ill) introduced the Challenges and Prizes for Climate Act of 2018. If passed, it will organize prize competitions for carbon capture, energy efficiency, energy storage, climate resiliency and climate data analytics.
The bill has equal numbers of Democratic and Republican original co-sponsors, in keeping with the Climate Solutions Caucus spirit of bipartisanship.

Some customers just get it.
#futureproof underway at project #Chaplin. This place has been #gutted - updated structurally to account for the old beltline railway fill. Is getting full high efficiency hydronic heating, complete #buildingenvelope upgrade with @rockwoolna walls and @Marvin windows . Full brick exterior and Standing seam metal roof for eternal durability. And today - being capped with a full side array of #solarpanels by @panasoniccanada for a net metering turnkey solution with backup energy storage and management system. A picture is worth a thousand words, but we had to let you know all of this exciting stuff in writing!!!
