Skilled Work and American Craftstmanship | Vince Romano

Vince Romano started his career in the dairy industry at a very young age.

After traveling throughout the world, Vince realized he wanted to do something that utilized the skill and heritage of the American workforce. 

With that, Truman Boot Co was born. Truman Boot Company handcrafts less than 2,000 boots in a calendar year. 

This week on Small Business War Stories, Vince Romano join us from Boulder, Co. 

Three reasons to tune in this week:

  • Learn about how Vince's very early independent start in farming business sculpted his future as a business owner and employer. 
  • Learn about Vince's challenge in finding skilled workers and his unique brand of hiring or "poaching" great workers. 
  • Learn how Vince is able to manufacture his boots within the United States while working with other businesses in the country and how there is a snowball effect when companies produce within the US.

This episode is part of the Soul of America tour sponsored by Freshbooks. During October 2017, I took my second tour of America. I drove with my puppy Muddy Waggers, my guitar, and my podcasting equipment with the goal of recording podcast episodes with small business owners throughout the heart of America.
