Chasing Dreams Down Under

I was excited to have Zach Taylor back on the podcast again today. Zach is always such a pleasure to talk to - he's got a great sense of humor and an incredible work ethic. I love hearing about all the adventures he gets himself into! This time, Zach shared about an amazing trip he took to visit our friend Jimmy Starbuck in Australia. I couldn't believe the details of Zach's 24 hour travel day just to get there - over 23 hours on planes from Boston to Melbourne. But he said it was all worth it to spend time with Jimmy and see the operations at Starbuck Excavation firsthand. Zach gave us a glimpse into Australian culture and the differences he experienced. From driving on the opposite side of the road to enjoying new foods, Zach took it all in stride. I was surprised to learn that Australia isn't nearly as dangerous as the memes make it out to be! Zach didn't encounter any deadly animals on his trip. It was fascinating to hear about Jimmy's multi-million dollar plant hire business. I had no idea about the plant hire system in Australia or how efficiently they run their job sites. Zach is always such an advocate for trench safety too, and I'm glad he continues sharing valuable information on social media. The most inspiring part of our talk was at the end, when Zach reflected on chasing his dreams. Even though his basketball dreams didn't pan out as he expected, he's found so many opportunities in the construction industry. Zach reminds us that you never know where following your passion may lead. I'm grateful he took the chance to visit a new country and make memories with good friends. It just goes to show that if you keep an open mind, you can turn unexpected experiences into lifelong adventures.
