Chip Conrad/ Entrepreneur

On July 19th 2023 Chip Conrad posted the first in what has become a  growing series focused around authentic personal inquiry and universal, shared life ...  experience. The Instagram series has been dubbed Chip and Nips by his followers, and Chip continues to produce transparent monologs asking honest questions focused on subject matter ranging from the personal challenges surrounding mental health, to the dangers of self-comparison, job and salary satisfaction,  levels of happiness, previous religious identity and much more.  On episode #41 I have the absolute pleasure to sit down with my friend Chip Conrad, as he shares his story of how a kid from Columbus Ohio landed in Bend Oregon and along the way traveled the world performing live improv comedy, owned a surfboard shaping company, opened a comedy club, wrote a book on and taught entrepreneurship, and built and sold a coworking space. Now running Bend Camper Company, Chip and his team are making quite a name for themselves in the space of van builds, conversions, and service. Yo Chip, this was a fun one man. I appreciate the authenticity and vulnerability you live your life with and the space you’re creating encouraging transparency as a source of fostering Trust.  I’m looking forward to skating the conveyer belt with you man. 

Thanks for listening to Bend Magazine’s The Circling Podcast. Make sure to pick up the latest Sept/Oct issue, it’s a good one. Greg Morris highlights 12 individuals in our community exceling in the art of coaching and Lucas Alberg explores the Buisness of running, how race participation is rebounding after Covid and just how much the running culture contributes to the health of our community.
