Alexandria Entrepreneurs featured in WeMentor Podcasts

Alexandria-based multi-venture entrepreneur Jim Conn is featured in a four-part podcast by WeMentor, which helps seasoned entrepreneurs and small business owners set goals, develop leadership plans, and practice new skills.

Originally from Parkers Prairie, Nancy A. Meyer founded WeMentor in 1992. She started with an aspiring entrepreneur. Since then, she has served thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners who are reinventing or evolving as they redesign their business.

On her podcasts, Meyer speaks to Conn about his six decades of entrepreneurial business acumen. They talk about Conn’s adventurous upbringing and resilient family as he describes how his life took shape before joining the family business of Wood & Conn Corp. in 1973. entered.

Conn’s entrepreneurship took off at the age of 8 with a burning need to make some nickels to ride his bike to the Gang Plank / Triple R / Rolling Roller Rink and buy an orange crush, a caramel roll, or a candy bar.

According to the podcasts, Norm Lund from Lund’s Bait Shop recognized Conn’s need and casually mentioned that he would be willing to trade nickel for frogs and angle worms. Lund became Conn’s first customer. A pesticide spray summer business was started from their 13 acre lake property at the age of 12. And that was just the beginning of Conn’s business.
