If you get your hands dirty at work, this podcast is for you. Stan Genadek has been in the landscaping/excavating business for 30 years. Entrepreneur, business owner and family man, Stan wanted to create a podcast that focused on contractor education – more specifically – on landscaping and excavating businesses from the business side of things. The Dirt Monkey University podcast will interview inspiring experts of all kinds that will help us dig into marketing, sales, management, tricks of the trade and anything else that will help you be more successful and run a better business. Although we interview a wide range of different guests, we will always keep our focus on our listeners. Whether you're an employee aspiring to begin your own business, or a seasoned owner looking to sharpen your skills and expand your horizons, Stan and his guests' top priority is to arm you with the knowledge and inspiration you need to push yourself to the next level. The show will also feature interviews with industry experts and innovative entrepreneurs. The goal is to help you be more profitable, more efficient, have happier customers and of course, make more money! Ultimately, this show is all about contractors, business owners, and anyone that gets their hands dirty to earn a living. When not creating podcasts, Stan is owner of Genadek Landscaping & Excavating in MN, and is also cofounder of a website designed to help landscapers and excavators move dirt fill without brokerage fees.

Inspiration for entrepreneurs
Love listening to the podcast. Great info.
This podcast is very inspiring and motivating. Its very informative
Hugely insightful for running a smart biz!
Whoa! Talk about Inspiration! I was so jazzed to listen to Blake Albertson's interview who is 19 and has about 11,000 followers on Instagram. Thank you for asking such critical questions about social media that I have asked for years! Golden Nuggets I learned: Consistency is huge, post often so people see your name, make sure pics are quality level without blurs, on Instagram use tags that are relevant so that people can find you when they click on a city for instance and your expertise, connect all of your social media forms together. Use: Youtube (set yourself apart from your competition), Instagram and FB. (All ages use FB) I'm excited to apply, thank you! InterviewvaletCF
