Kurt Nauck, Investor and Founder of TexasReady and Nauck Vintage Records: "Get Ready!" (15 min)

Discover what Kurt Nauck has in common with Pink Higgins (The Good Bad Man), why the Houston Museum of Natural Science bought his venture, and when he hired his Dad (15 minutes).

=================================================

CEO Blindspots® Podcast Guest: Kurt Nauck.

A lifelong entrepreneur, Kurt began his first business as a freshman in high school. Upon entering Texas A&M University, he started his second business, Korwear, selling senior boots and uniforms to the Aggie Corp of Cadets. He graduated with a degree in wildlife biology (which he never expected to use), but wound up starting another business in Houston called Wildlife on Wheels. Hiring wildlife graduates out of A&M, this traveling zoo serviced the greater Houston area for 8 years until he sold it to the Houston Museum of Natural Science where it continues to exist today.

Another business he began in 1984 was Memory Machines, a shop in downtown Houston specializing in mechanical and musical antiques. This operation morphed into Nauck's Vintage Records, the world's largest purveyor of vintage 78rpm and cylinder sound recordings made from the 1890s to the 1950s.

His involvement in the world of vintage records led to a 2009 Grammy nomination for a historical reissue of Edison cylinders entitled "Polk Miller and His Old South Quartet."

In 2012, Kurt formed Texas Ready, a company dedicated to teaching people how to become food self-sufficient. He and his Texas Ready business partner Lucinda Bailey sell heirloom seeds to people who wish to grow food in their own backyard, as well as food preservation equipment such as freeze dryers, dehydrators and canners, and they offer hands-on instruction pertaining to food production, preservation and storage.
