Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Dan Bird, Owner and President of The Dan Company, who shares his personal story of working in the construction industry for over 25 years, learning the trades as a carpenter, painter, plumber and all-around handyman, and traveling and fixing homes across the US from Alaska to Maine. Since 2010, The Dan Company has provided Nashville, Tennessee with high-quality home remodeling and general contracting services. The company specializes in additions, full gut and remodels, historic renovations, kitchen and bathroom remodeling, screened-in porches, decks, painting, custom carpentry and more. During the interview, Dan talks about moving to Nashville and starting the business, how his team and home owners are successfully navigating supply chain challenges, the importance of taking care of your team and fostering corporate culture, and balancing the things that need to be done to a home versus cosmetic upgrades.
He also talks about his support of the nonprofit, 4:13 Strong, which provides training, skills, and job placement for at-risk men in Middle Tennessee. A 6-8 month residential program that equips men to succeed personally and professionally. Our hands-on approach sets us apart from other programs. We’re involved in our guys’ daily lives, and create a supportive environment for them to live and learn. 4:13 Strong operates under the simple and powerful belief that every man deserves a second chance to do great things!
