Welcome to a brand new episode of the Beef! Here today to share their stories with us today are Anthony and Michael-David from Tilted Concepts, a consumer-centric venture capital firm. Tune in to hear about the three brands that Tilted Concepts is working with, which include a fun packaged takeout company called Balanced Foods; an old world barber shop with a modern touch called Tune Up; and Martinis and Manicures, the nail bar equivalent for women. We touch on what Anthony and Michael-David consider to be the key to health: picking your vices to afford yourself balance. Michael-David shares some insights into the world of marketing and how he works in storytelling and leverages social media for the businesses connected to Tilted Concepts. Both guests share their background as high school graduates, why passion is not always what you want to do for a living, and how they have come to see failure as an opportunity to learn. Join us today to hear all this and more!
Key Points From This Episode:
“We try to take the ‘have to’ into ‘want to’ so Tune Up’s a great environment, it’s a fun environment. Come into one of the salons, get taken care of, get a great haircut, beard trim, full bar, everything’s complimentary. It’s such a great unwind from the outside world.” — Anthony [0:08:00]
“Our people have passion, we look for that. That’s what we recruit for.” — Anthony [0:13:57]
“I personally hate social media, what it has created, but it’s also been the greatest gift to a small business.” — Michael-David [0:26:33]
