D&C Distributors

Name: Chad Johnson

Location: Ellensburg, WA 

Type of Business:
Consulting


What does your business do?
Jack consulting helps young companies grow there business with interest in agriculture, recycling, and environmentally sustainable business. We can help R&D, provide guidance, help procure sales, help get patents, market products, and connect buyers and sellers around the world. Jack Consulting has emphasis on Agricultural plastic recycling, industrial hemp production, and sustainable construction products.

When and why did you start the biz?
Starting 02-15, Jack Consulting was started to follow up on opportunities that the distribution and farm that Jack consulting owner worked for could not fulfill the need correctly. There were and are opportunities to combine aspects from both companies to work together and create new products, jobs, tax revenue, and profits to help organizations help people in need.

How Many People are in your Company?
1

Where's your office?
My office is a one bedroom farm cabin that was remodeled into a office. I share this space with my family company. It sits on my family farm in rural Ellensburg, WA. You step out the front door and see Angus cattle, hay fields, and mountains. People from around the world that we work with are always amazed on the amount of professionalism we have while coming from a such a rural community. My two sons come to "Friday doughnut" every week before school.

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
The toughest part of this company is trying to explain my vision. The vision combines agriculture, recycling, clean fuel, industrial hemp. So to show traditional funding options how this all works together, they are to closed minded.

What's the most fun part?
Having a vision like I do and to have pieces come into place building to the full vision.

Anything you would have done differently?
good or bad all the experiences have been learning opportunities. And that is why Jack consulting can be a huge help to others, we all need to have hard times to learn from but if somebody is there to back you up and help you through them is a huge help.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
The next step is trying to secure funding to start R&D on industrial hemp production and processing in the Kittitas valley.

What advice do you have for others?
Relax. Always work hard keep doing what you think is right, don't take short cuts, but relax. Take time out to step back and think. I have a thinking chair in my office, I step away from the computer and sit, looking at the world map I have on my wall and just go back over all that I have done and what I want to do, making sure I have not missed a step, spending little time on what I did wrong, but not dwelling on them. Being a business owner, and especially a startup is not easy, don't get down, and from the movie "Meet the Robinsons", "Keep moving Forward."

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
I believe any tool to help new companies is a huge help. Idea Café has so many tools for funding, and communicating, that once your comfortable with using it will be a tool you always go to. I have just had a small taste of what Idea Café offers and hope to use it to its full potential.

School (where, still in school, degree)?
Kittitas High School

Prior jobs or business?
As a kid I washed my fathers hay trucks, he hauled hay from the Columbia basin to dairies near Seattle. as a young man into my late teen years I worked for local farms baling hay, and worked on my family farm raising cattle. from My early 20's to current I have worked for my family distribution company that supply hay packaging products to hay exports around the world. I also have owner ship in a facility that currently produce's Diesel Exhaust Fluid.

Favorite Food?
Cooking my own.

What are your pets' names?
No pets, to busy just to pen them up.

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
My parents are a huge part of my professional vision, have old baseball and basketball coaches that I want to show that the discipline they put into me went way beyond high school sports. And to set an example for my sons that anything can be achieved.

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
Mom and Dad.
