    Secret to Success: Seeking Opportunity with Brandy McCombs, owner of IBC

    in Entrepreneur

    Brandy McCombs, owner of International Builders and Consultants (IBC), joins host Kelly Scanlon to discuss her entrepreneurial journey, how she's grown the company, and her latest expansion.
    Brandy had entrepreneurial aspirations from a young age. Growing up in a small town in southeast Ohio, she watched her father and grandfather run their companies. After working in restaurant management, she decided to move to Florida in search of additional opportunities. She became the restaurant manager of Sundial Beach Resort on Sanibel Island.
    After several years, she knew she needed to change careers. So, she explored the construction industry.  In 2000 she worked for the largest MEP contractor in Southwest Florida’s HVAC new construction service department.  After five years in the subcontracting world, she moved onto the general contracting side as an interior superintendent helping condominium associations build out their tenant spaces.
    With the experience and knowledge she acquired, Brandy founded International Builders & Consultants in 2009. With the economic downturn, she decided to move to an area where there would be more opportunity for her company. Her research led her to Kansas City.  IBC has became a “household” name for its quality craftsmanship as trim carpenters working for various general contractors. And in 2014 Brandy discovered a business opportunity that would require adding a separate division to IBC. As she'd done throughout her career, she didn't hesitate to pursue it. As a result, Brandy has added a new division that does flagging and traffic control for projects, including the Kansas City StreetCar.  Recently, IBC added a new location to house the traffic division.

    CUTV News Radio spotlights Claudia Harvey of Dig It Apparel®

    in Entrepreneur

    Brampton, ON – Over a BBQ on a Labor Day weekend, Claudia Harvey and a friend had been discussing how easy it was to ruin their manicured hands in the garden. For women who love to take care of their nails as much as they enjoy gardening, this was a big problem.
    “It sounds silly but when you look at the investment that women put into their hands and their style, as much as $52 every two or three weeks, only to destroy it the next day when they work in their garden, there was no product for that,” recalls Claudia.
    They soon discovered both industries – hand care and home gardening – were growth sectors, with a huge gap in the market for women who wanted to protect their nails in the garden.
    Today, Claudia Harvey is the co-founder and CEO of Dig It Apparel®, which specializes in manufacturing utility gloves for women that protect a woman’s nails in the garden and any DIY project. Dig It’s gloves have an Industrial Design patented pillow-top protector that sits on top of the fingernail inside each fingertip, which cushions the nail with a form fit. The unique design inhibits debris from getting to the nails.
    But Claudia’s life truly changed when the company pitched on Dragon’s Den, Canada’s version of Shark Tank, where they partnered with investor Kevin O’Leary. Following the broadcast, big box stores like The Home Depot Canada and Lowes expressed interest.
    “Our customers love the product,” says Claudia. “Dig It is a small Canadian company that launched in the recession, and now we are expanding significantly in the US. The only way we can do that is if the consumers continue to love your product and you evolve over time and always look at new opportunities for growth.”

    Imagine yourself at age 80: What will you look back on with pride? What will you wish you had accomplished? Did you follow your dreams? Your passions?
    Some say not to mix passion and business, but I respectfully disagree. Money can take you only so far, but integrating your passion with your business provides sustainable motivation and the grit to weather the inevitable ups and downs of entrepreneurial endeavors. You get to live what you love and be of service to others along the way so why would you not try and find a way to turn your passion into a profitable business.
