Lessons from Local Leaders:
Ever wonder what some people see in old, dilapidated houses that most of us would give a wide berth to? Meet our guest, Matthew Prol, a tenacious entrepreneur who has been breathing new life into such homes since 2004. Once an aspiring doctor, they chose instead to heal houses rather than people, focusing on personalized spaces and the beauty of older homes. With a distaste for prefab new builds, their journey in the realm of handcrafted construction is one that will make you look at old buildings in a whole new light.
As we delve deeper into their unique story, we also ponder on the importance of practical skills and the impact they can have when shared with the underprivileged. From my own experiences in construction and mechanical work to the joy of building an underground bunker, the episode touches upon the fulfillment derived from tangible creations. And, as we discuss the trials and tribulations of setting up a business and the courage needed to tap into new opportunities, our conversation will leave you with a strong message – to never give up on what you love, no matter the roadblocks. So, get ready for an enthralling discussion that’s as much about following your passion as it is about the joy of hands-on work.
