PRESS RELEASE: LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON

MARINE VET DAD WAITS FOR SON TO JOIN FORCES WITH HIM AT HIS WINDOW GENIE

(MOORESVILLE, Ind.)—Mike Angle served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1980-1985. After working for United Airlines for 17 years, the veteran decided that it was time for a change and, along with wife Karen, chose to open his own Window Genie franchise located at 8717 N Country Club Road and serving Hendricks County, Camby, Mooresville, Greenwood and South Indianapolis areas. With the franchise famous for its “big three” services—window cleaning, window tinting and pressure washing—Angle is leveraging leadership skills earned from his military service with the franchise system lauded in 2014 by Money Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, Inc. Magazine and a host of other media for its franchisee growth success.

Angle opened his Window Genie business in 2011 with his wife, inspired by the harsh realities of the economic climate at the time.

“My wife had to take a 40 percent pay cut at her own job in 2010,” said Angle. “That gave us reason to pause and ask ourselves ‘What are we doing? Let’s go in business together.’ We located a business coach who recommended three different franchises. Window Genie was the clear standout due to the support it provides for franchisees, making our choice an easy one.”

Now, Angle’s son, Joseph, an E-5 Marine with eight years of service time under his belt, is slated to join the proud father and mother at Window Genie. With his start date slated for June, Angle is preparing for a Father’s Day unlike any other.

After nearly four years of business, Angle can now safely say that the couple’s choice was the right one to make. But with the addition of Joseph, Angle said, the business takes on special significance to him.

“We’ve provided full-service cleaning solutions that others don’t—not only do we clean windows, but we clean gutters, we power wash concrete, home exteriors and decks, and we install window tinting—which has made us a success,” said Mike. “But now that my son’s joining the team, ensuring the continued success of Window Genie means ensuring a business that will be his to run years down the line. Window Genie provides a system that makes me confident that the business will be there for him when it’s time.”

As he prepares for the introduction of his son to the Window Genie of Southwest Indianapolis team, Angle looks ahead to budding industry trends.

“Washed windows make an obvious impact in terms of increasing a home’s aesthetics, but window tinting is definitely coming into play more as well,” said Angle. “A properly tinted window can prevent harmful rays from damaging furniture and can help keep homes cooler, benefiting both homeowners’ wallets and the environment.”

Indiana Guitar Show returns to Indy

Guitar lovers and those who appreciate all things associated with guitars will want to visit the Indianapolis Airport Radisson this Sunday.

The Indiana Guitar Show is back.

From 11 AM to 6 PM Sunday, the Indiana Guitar Show is a one-day musical frenzy. All sorts of instruments are sold, bought and traded in one location.

And it’s not just guitars; all types of stringed instruments – guitars, of course, plus basses, fiddles, mandolins, etc – are available, according to Eddie Prather, owner of Minor Prophet Studios and one of the event organizers.

“We also have a few band instruments and drums,” Prather said. “Plus other equipment such as PA gear, Mics, recording gear, and more. There will also be sound absorption companies like Auralex to help solve troubled studio specs or houses of worship and any other accessories like tuners.”

The Indiana Guitar Show had been running for 18 years before the original organizer decided to stop for personal reasons. That was four years ago when Prather and Doug Spencer were asked if they wanted to get involved.

“Doug Spencer and I had been involved in a smaller show in Muncie with Jerry Engle the past three years,” Prather said. “He didn’t really enjoy doing the show and asked me to take it over. After several months of persuading, I relented and took over the show; asking Doug to co-promote it with me. We contacted the previous owner of The Indiana Guitar Show and asked to buy the name from him, so we could pick up the show as it was from back in the days when it took place at the Indiana State Fair.”

One of the first things Prather and Spencer did was relocate the event away from the Indiana State Fair.

“We decided after looking at multiple sites to change the venue to The Airport Radisson right off I- 465 and I-70,” Prather explained. “There was really easy access for those who would be coming in from out of town and locals could also get there much easier than the fairgrounds which is difficult to get to and costs $5 just to get into the parking lot, even before getting their admission to the show.

“We chose it because parking was free and the rate for a one day show was reasonable and very easy access.”

The Radisson offered one thing even more appealing – a buffet. This eliminated the need to line up food vendors as well as guitar vendors.

“They agreed to run a buffet the whole event,” Prather noted. “People can pay for a buffet and then walk in and out of the buffet area due to the two rooms that the Guitar show is in is attached to the buffet room.”

More than 115 tables of equipment from vendors across the country are available for perusal with vendors from across the country – Chicago, Detroit, Tempe Arizona, South Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, Nashville and all over the Midwest.

Admission to the event is $8, and parking is free. People are encouraged to bring their vintage instruments in to have the dealers look them over and give them an idea of their worth nationally.

“Some of these guys are primarily buyers,” Prather said. “They bring thousands of dollars with them to buy all sorts of musical stuff that they will pick up in Indiana so we welcome people to bring their musical items for trading, & selling.

“It’s like being an American Picker,” Prather said. “An American Guitar Picker!”
