Planet Reuse and Flow. Two awesome companies that call Bizperc home.

Nathan Benjamin and Willow Lundgren are on to something.  Merging modern technology with a goal of reusing reclaimed building materials.  Planet Reuse is creating an online catalog that connects the salvager with the builder while avoiding the landfill.

Make reclaimed material reuse easier and more people will do it. This simple but revolutionary goal drove the founders of PlanetReuse to create a new kind of company in 2008. Frustrated by the time and resources it took to track down salvaged materials for their own commercial projects, they took an entrepreneurial leap to uncover a solution for the building industry as a whole.

Initially an internet-based material brokerage, PlanetReuse has evolved into a consulting and brokering company focused on providing the insight, experience and materials its clients need. With a well-defined and efficient process, PlanetReuse expertly matches materials with designers, builders and owners to save projects money, serve LEED efforts and sustain the planet.



And stay tuned for my chat with Coty Beasley from a design and branding company called Flow.

Conveniently Natural – Brian and Kim Gordon – The Newest Beatnik Radio Guests

The name says it all.

My wife Carrie and I saw the sign go up six months ago at Southwest Trafficway and 37th street.  We saw a flyer or two around town and then we decided to go for it.  We ordered a week’s worth of food, and it was delivered to our front door. It was delicious –  and super healthy!  A win, win, win.  Speaking of winning, at the end of this podcast episode, we will tell you how to enter to win a week’s worth of free food, delivered to your front door (KC metro only) from Conveniently Natural!  Sweet!

The story behind the food is even better.  The entrepreneurial couple behind the story is the best part.  Join us as I chat with Brian and Kim Gordon, founders of Conveniently Natural.

We talk about the following:

  • How Brian decided to leave a cushy job with “the fortune one company” to pursue his passion,
  • Fantastic advice from Kim on starting and running a small business,
  • Brian’s journey to discover the cure for his acid reflux, insomnia, I.B.S. and digestive issues,
  • How important it is to research and be aware of what we are putting into our bodies.
