046: HELP! Laser Engraving 911! (feat. Michael Mullins)
One day in the early 2010's Michael came to me, currently an employee in his vape shop, with an idea. What if people wanted their vapes engraved? Well it turns out no one wanted their vapes engraved and we were stuck with a VERY expensive laser and no idea what to do with it. This set us both onto the path that brought us where we are today and I don't think either of us could have even imagined what was ahead. Get to know Micheal, his YouTube channel, his business and everything in between PLUS the real deal backstory on Alex from Laser Everything.
