Big city, small world best describes my experience interacting with famous Actor John Ratzenberger.
I was at the landmark Knickerbocker Hotel in Times Square in New York City on my way to the bar to attend an after party for an event held around the corner and shared an elevator ride with John and had a chance to record a quick podcast, where he caught me up on his latest ecommerce venture TheGiftBox.com a venture he just launched over the last week.
While many of us know John for playing the mail carrier Cliff Clavin on the NBC sitcom “Cheers”, John also was in every Pixar movie over a 20 year period. He also produced and starred in the Travel Channel series “Made in America,” which highlighted U.S.-made goods and workers. John is continuing the passion with his new venture TheGiftBox.com, which is discussed during the podcast.
John is passionate about how important it is of the importance of providing training to produce skilled laborers here in this country and through his efforts is working towards helping businesses succeed here in the US. It was truly an honor to spend time with him and how ironic it was that I met John and conducted the podcast on the spot in a bar, completely unscripted. What a great guy!
