Josh Smith is the man behind the Reno, Nevada-based Modular Greenhouses. The company focuses on selling modular greenhouses that can be expanded. Its focus is serving the home gardener who wants to grow fresh flowers, fruits and vegetables year-round, but does not have the capacity to install a large greenhouse used in industrial farming.
Mr. Smith was recently interviewed by Ideamensch. He founded Modular Greenhouses a few years ago while trying to get a greenhouse for personal gardening and farming use. Josh Smith now serves as the CEO of the company. Below are some of the interview highlights with Ideamensch.
Josh Smith was asked about some trends that he thinks are exciting. He responded that organic farming is now on the rise. Home gardening is also making a comeback. 3D printing fascinates Josh Smith as well. He believes it can help shorten the time span between prototypes and finished products. Technology and changes in human behavior are two things you need to pay attention to as a businessman says Smith.
Ideamensch then asked Josh Smith what is a key idea of his that makes him more productive as a business person. Josh Smith says that the key in his life is to have something that you really feel passionate about. When you are working on something you care about deeply, then you have a strong motivation. This motivation will push you to achieve great things and to keep going. Persistence is necessary in business says Smith. You also must put in a lot of time and effort. When you do something you love, it becomes much easier.
Mr. Smith was asked what advice he would give his younger counterpart. Josh Smith says that you need to enjoy the ride. He also says do not rush into things. Not listening to people who put you down is another good word of advice he says. You need to believe in yourself if you are to succeed in business. Josh says you should just ignore people who have no knowledge of the field you are trying to get into. After all, what do they know about what you are trying to do?

James Larkin, a renowned workers’ activist, was born in 1876 to Irish parents in Liverpool. Due to the poverty in his family, he did not get a formal education. Plagued with poverty, Larkin opted to do manual labor to supplement his family’s income. Learn more about Jim Larkin: http://spartacus-educational.com/IRElarkin.htm
This path of manual labor led him to the Liverpool Docks where he, worked as a foreman. It is during this time that he joined the National Union of Dock Labourers (NUDL) and his socialist views came to the forefront.
Larkin’s methods of advocating for workers’ rights were not acceptable to NUDL, and he was, therefore, transferred to Dublin IN 1907 where he formed the Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union.
At that time, very few Irish workers had unionized and were suffering under terrible working conditions. Jim Larkin led many industrial strikes in both parties that he co-founded; the most famous was the 1913 Dublin Lockout where for eight months 100,000 workers went on strike.
Unfortunately, his glory years as an activist dwindled, and in 1914 he left Ireland with the idea of being a public speaker across the world. At the beginning of the First World War, he led protests against the war calling for the Irish people to defend Ireland only and not fight for any other nation.
Furthermore, Jim Larkin tried to raise funds from the United States to fight the British. Unfortunately, in 1920 he was found guilty of criminal anarchy and communism and jailed. Three years later he was, however, pardoned and deported back to Britain.
Back in Dublin, Larkin was not welcome to his former union which greatly disillusioned him. His brother and his son formed the Workers’ Union of Ireland (WUI) which was more pro-communism. It was in this union that he served until his death in 1946.
While there are malls everywhere, some of the more successful malls are the large ones. For one thing, while it is rather fun to visit any mall, it is almost an event to go to a huge mall. For one thing, the larger malls are where people will find more of the unique stores. Smaller and average sized malls are just going to have the usual stores with a possibility of one unique store. At the same time, where the larger malls have full stores, some of the locations at the smaller malls tend to be rather reduced versions of the full store.
Roberto Santiago has made sure that his mall, Manaira Shopping is a large mall that has the full versions of stores. Therefore, people will find everything they are looking for in the store they want. They don’t have to deal with the frustration of only seeing reduced sections. Manaira Shopping, like other malls, features full sections of the store. This is one of the appeals of the large malls. Similar things can be said for the food court. They don’t just have regular fast food joints. The mall actually has more than one area for eating. While one food court has mostly fast food, the other areas actually has full service restaurants.
One thing that customers will say about Manaira Shopping is that it is not just a mall, it is an experience. For people who want to go shopping, Manaira Shopping provides an unforgettable experience. Also, people who go there for entertainment will be overwhelmed with the options that this mall has that even a lot of the bigger malls don’t have. For one thing, they don’t just stop at the movie theaters like other malls do. They go above and beyond to provide features like concert halls and arcade. However, even their theaters surpass other theaters with recliners and full meals being offered to go along with the film. One thing about Manaira Shopping is that it is not just the size, it is the variety of shops that are being offered to the visiting customers.

This is where people that are trying to build network connections have an open platform to get involved with other entrepreneurs.
