We are Joined by 4castplus CEO Christopher Ronak for an Interview

Written by Express Press Release on . Posted in Business

Construction project management services

Christopher Ronak, the CEO of 4castplus, a technology company that builds specialized software for the construction industry, joins us for an interview.

Why did you decide to start your 4castplus?

Christopher Ronak: It’s challenging to find a platform to innovate new ideas when you’re working for someone else. When you’re possessed with creative ideas that you need to pursue, the only real way to pursue them is to go it alone. It’s not easy of course, but the non-stop challenge is part of the appeal; and the gratification from the intensity of the commitment just can’t be felt otherwise.

How would you describe your business to us?

Christopher Ronak: We’re a technology company that builds specialized software for construction project management and project cost controls. Our product, 4castplus, is cloud-based software that is marketed and sold to engineering and construction companies worldwide.

How was it that you ended up finding your niche?

Christopher Ronak: Big construction projects have layers upon layers of complexity that are impossible to stay on top of if the right tools and processes aren’t used. I worked in the technology and project cost controls business for years prior to starting this business. It was clear to me then that there was a significant lack of available software that took a unified, holistic approach to project controls and project management.

The only software that came close was old, expensive, difficult to use and required a lengthy and costly implementation. We wanted to change all that and build something that truly met the complex needs of these larger projects and teams.

Did you have a business plan? If so, has it required any tweaking throughout the years?

Christopher Ronak: Yes we had a business plan, and we continue to tweak that business plan. There were several elements to our original plan that we’ve had to change along the way, but the overall purpose and objectives have remained consistent. There have been opportunities that have emerged in our market over the years, along with new insights that we’ve gained with listening to our users, that have caused us to correct and adjust to take advantage of those opportunities.

For you personally, what is the most rewarding part of running your own company?

Christopher Ronak: Part of the reward is that I love what I do. All our staff love it too. But best of all is that our customers love our software. All of that gives me an intense feeling of having done something good. All the effort and moments of worry or uncertainty are quickly dismissed when I see or hear the words of a happy client.

Finally, do you have any words of wisdom for those who may be thinking about starting their own business?

Christopher Ronak: It takes more work and more time than you ever expected. Make sure you manage your business and personal cash flow very carefully. It’s unlikely you’ll have a quick-win and raging success without a lot of effort and careful strategic planning. I’ll mention cash flow again – even if you have a brilliant idea and plan, cash flow will kill it if not managed.

Press release news

According to PR Newswire, the most effective way to optimize press releases is by creating interesting content through “natural writing.” Of course, this is nothing new to the top internet marketing companies, which continue to come up with fresh, innovative ways to attract the attention of web users via high quality content.

For obvious reasons, it is impossible for businesses to construct effective internet marketing campaigns around vacuous content that only exists to garner as many hits as possible. Fortunately, the Google Panda and Penguin algorithms have clamped down on such companies who try to “stuff” search engines with dubious content; and it will not hesitate to unleash harsh penalties upon any companies or websites that choose to engage in black hat tactics.

We Interview Lainie Anderson, Marketing Director of The Sunglass Fix

Written by Express Press Release on . Posted in Uncategorized

Fix scratched sunglass lenses

During our recent interview with Lainie Anderson, Marketing Director of The Sunglass Fix, we learned what drove Lainie and her husband Craig to leave successful careers and six figure incomes and take the huge risk of starting a business. (Spoiler alert: The business is a winner!)

What was the catalyst for starting The Sunglass Fix?

Lainie Anderson: My husband, Craig, wanted to be his own boss and we wanted to live in a beautiful part of the world by the beach! He wanted to start something that hadn’t been done before, that really served a niche in the business world. He had just done his MBA at Pepperdine, CA, so he was inspired from this experience.

Can you describe your business to us?

Lainie Anderson: We sell top quality sunglass replacement lenses. We sell approximately 50 percent to the US market, 10 percent worldwide, and the rest in Australia. We offer FREE shipping for “lens only” orders where a customer knows the make and model of their sunglass frame and orders from our website the lenses they want to install themselves.

We ship out lenses the same, or next business day so the shipping is the time delay. To the U.S. PST it’s five to ten days. To U.S. EST it’s seven to fourteen days. Within Australia it’s two to five business days. We offer a pickup and delivery service here but we’re focusing on the U.S. market so we can’t promote this.

What steps did you and your husband take to acquire the skills necessary to run this kind of business?

Lainie Anderson: Working around start up companies in the dot com boom in silicon valley has helped, so our corporate careers have given us a myriad of disciplines useful for running our own business. My husband has an amazing drive and tenacity to just work things out and has excellent operational systems background.

Have there been any difficulties or unexpected obstacles that have popped up along the way?

Lainie Anderson: Everyone thought we had “gone mad” with this crazy idea of selling sunglass lenses. We had both given up big six figure salaries for this venture and my mom barely spoke to my husband for a few years thinking he was going through an early midlife crisis! There was pretty much no one who thought Craig’s business plan was a winner. Many were doubtful, a few thought…maybe. Now that it’s successful and affording us an amazing lifestyle in one of Australia’s most famous beach towns people can’t believe how great of an idea it is. This is what is most funny to us, the complete turn around.

What about unexpected obstacles? Surely you’ve had some of those!

Lainie Anderson: Many. Getting the message to the world that there is an option to replace your lenses without having to toss them away. This has been the most challenging part. Without a big marketing budget to spread billboards all over the world, it’s been a tough slog getting found, and still is. Luckily for us, the big surge in smartphones and internet usage has helped our business grow and get found.

Finally, have there ever been any times that you’ve wanted to give up? If so, how did you and your husband manage to keep going?

Lainie Anderson: Yes and No! We’ve invested so much blood, sweat and personal savings into the business we didn’t want to give up. Plus it meant moving back to a city for us and we love the beach lifestyle for us and our kids. We’re accustomed to hard work after being in the corporate world, the long hours that it takes to make it work. My husband worked every weekend for four years getting it all off the ground while I was raising our first child, so yes there were many times when I wanted him to get a “real job.” But now that we have staff and some time back, it’s all been so worth it to run our own unique business, there’s no describing how rewarding this is.

Based out of Byron Bay, Australia, The Sunglass Fix has been providing high quality sunglass lenses to its customers for over six years. To learn more about this company, visit www.thesunglassfix.com
