  • Meet the Maker Podcast: Susan Castriota of Cuchina Safe

    Meet the Maker Podcast with Susan Castriota of Cuchina Safe. On this episode, we talk to Susan about how she came up with the business. Susan Castriota, the Maker of Cuchina Safe, creates glass microwave lids and cooking dishes to help people avoid using plastic when cooking.

    The creation of her products stemmed from her breast cancer diagnosis, which could have been a podcast in itself. It caused her to reevaluate the types of consumer products she used in her life. When she learned of the dangers plastics presented when cooking or microwaving, it led to her business. To hear more about that story and how she has handled growing her business, we talk to Susan herself.

  • Meet the Maker Podcast: Adam Hizme of Guardian Bells

    Adam_Hizme_GuardianBellsAdam Hizme has had an entrepreneurial spirit since he was a kid selling candy bars to his classmates at school. So, years later, when someone walked into his motorcycle shop looking for good luck bells he didn't have, he naturally decided to make them.

    With Guardian Bells, Adam is living out his dream as an entrepreneur in a field he did not expect. I catch up with him at the Las Vegas Market trade show where he was exhibiting with our Wholesale team. He walks us through how he got started, the battles he faces from competition, and how he comes up with his hundreds of designs.
