Episode 5: The REAL Story of Danny Z's Woodworking

Episode 5: The REAL Story of Danny Z's Woodworking
Hear the REAL Story of Danny Z’s Woodworking.  He likes to play with wood! Danny had a grandfather that was a cabinet maker and carpenter, pushing him to have a passion for woodworking at a young age.  By the time he was a senior in high school, he somehow managed to find a way to spend 7 of the 8 periods in the wood shop. Two days after graduation he was in basic training and literally forgot EVERYTHING woodworking. He got out of the army in 2013, started his family, and had zero idea what he wanted to be when he grew up so he started working in corporate America.  Some of Danny’s story:In 2015, my wife asks me if I can make a piece of pallet wall art for our son's room that she had found on Pinterest. I said yes, and that small project reignited a spark. I created a Facebook page and started doing projects as a side hustle. Along with the enjoyment of creating these beautiful pieces,  I also found it to be a sort of therapy for my PTSD. Over the years I relearned what I had forgotten and continued to grow my skill set at every opportunity. By the beginning of 2021, the corporate world had drained enough of my mental and emotional spirit that I decided it was time for a change., so I told myself I was giving it until July to build up enough of a customer base and reputation that I could go full time. August 1st 2021, Danny Z's Woodworking became a full-time business, and I haven’t looked back! I'm a proud parent of 3 awesome kids, and have a wife that busts her ass day in and day out to make sure all 4 of us are the best human beings we can be! I'm also extremely passionate about the prevention of veteran suicide, which is why I chose to bring the city of Milwaukee it's first ever "Irreverent Warriors Silkies Hike" in 2021 and continue to work as a coordinator with them today.  Danny ZientekDanny Z’s Woodworkingwww.dzwoodworking.com@DZwoodworking Andrea Yochum Selfie Studio A www.selfiestudioa.com @selfiestudioa  Nichole Rogers 1st Class Real Estate Platinum platinum.1stclassrealestate.com @1stClassPlatinum Follow the show or reach out to be a guest! realstoriesofentrepreneurs@gmail.com @RealStoriesofEntrepreneurs
