Brett Schneider tells his story and  why it seems perfectly natural that he would end up where he is today at Wow Windowboxes as the CEO and Partner.  Following is a short road map of how he got to where he is in life.  As early as middle school he can remember loving plants and landscaping. In high school Bret was fascinated by amazing yards and beautiful flowers. He had an amazing teacher who also had a garden center and lots of plants in her classroom she let him experiment with propagation and other plant related things. However, he was always very good in art was always being complemented on his abilities. Naturally, he believed he should follow his talents so he entered college as an art education major. He quickly learned that education wasn’t the profession for him and started enjoying business and marketing. He graduated from college and entered into the product management field which seemed like a dream job.  He was able to fulfill his analytic side and work with designers on new product lines. He felt like he did well in the positions but resented the lack of full control of his destiny. While he was working as a product he manager his mother started WOW Windowboxes.

Our second guest is National Commander of the American Legion Charles E. Schmidt. American Legion National Commander Charles E. Schmidt, a Vietnam War veteran, loves his country but believes that America could do more to love those who have worn the uniform and protect our way of life.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the U.S. entry into World War I. Following the war, The American Legion was founded by a group of World War I veterans in Paris and dedicated itself to the four pillars of providing a strong national defense; care and rehabilitative programs for veterans; patriotic programs for young people; and Americanism.

Charles E. Schmidt was elected national commander of the 2.2 million-member American Legion on Sept. 1, 2016 in Cincinnati, Ohio, during the 98th national convention of the nation’s largest veterans organization.

The American Legion is the nation’s largest veterans’ service organization, with about 2.2 million members and more than 13,000 posts worldwide, whose members are involved in community-based support of veterans, service members and their families. The American Legion is strongly committed to helping veterans and military families with its outreach programs and lobbying efforts, as a new generation of returning veterans reintegrate into the community.
