008: Paul Akers On Banishing Sloppiness By Falling in Love With Japanese Precision
In this episode of The Ikigai Podcast, I interview Paul Akers about his latest book, Banish Sloppiness. Paul Akers is the founder and president of FastCap, a product development company specializing in woodworking tools and hardware for the professional builder. Paul is an energetic speaker whose core passion is helping people discover their full potential and showing others how to implement Lean in their business and personal life. As you would expect, Paul is also passionate about Japan and teaches people the philosophy of Japan through his Japan study missions. Paul and I had a great conversation about how lean manufacturing, precision, and Japanese culture changed his life.
