October 24, 2018
As Panelized Structures nears our 30th year in business, we are readying ourselves for the future with the launch of a new website and a clear focus on our company goals. Founded by Peter “Hoppy” Post in 1989, Panelized Structures began in a converted garage in the almond orchards of Manteca, Ca. From those modest beginnings, we have grown our company from 3 to 350 employees. Our current corporate headquarters sit on 3 acres in Modesto, CA. We service 7 major markets in the Western US, and construct millions of square feet of completed projects every year.
The times may have changed, but much of what we do remains the same. Our founder is mostly retired, “Hoppy” continues to participate in safety conferences, management meetings, and stays connected to the team. Our president and co-owner, Keith H Coonce oversees daily operations while looking ahead to the next 30 years. At Panelized, we realize our greatest asset is our employees, and the relationships we have with our customers. With this strategic re-branding and a strong marketing plan, Panelized is positioned to continue market growth while continuing to serve our clients with excellence and experience. Moving ahead, our goal is to attract and retain the next generation to carry on the legacy of this great company. We truly look forward to the next 30 years!
Panelized Structures Inc., sets the standard for innovation and safety in large scale commercial and industrial building roof structures. We get the job done with unrivaled experience, knowledge, efficiency, and safety. Learn more at www.panelized.com

In the TRENCHES with Hair Artist Amanda Fator, by Robin Fator for Real Fake Magazine
Dreams do come true! Amanda Fator is a Platform Artist with Sexy Hair, she travels the globe teaching hair cutting and styling techniques. She also works behind the chair at Studio S in downtown Redding. In addition she is a regular part of RealFake Magazine editorial photoshoots. This September she was part of the select Sexy Hair team that worked backstage at The Blonds Spring/Summer 2017 fashion show in NYC. Being her sister-in-law certainly has it's perks: she is my personal hair stylist and she lives just 2 blocks away from me. On Friday afternoon we settled into her sunlit living room where she gave me the inside scoop on this amazing opportunity and how she got to where she is today.
The Creative Process by Robin Fator
The name Rick Rubin might not ring any bells, and his image certainly doesn't conjure up the idea of a multimillion dollar music producer. Even if you've never listened to the Red Hot Chili Peppers or Jay-Z there is a lot to be learned from this amazing man.
After listening to Tim Ferris interview him, it dawned on me that Rick's simple ideas and willingness to try new things without resistance are part of what has made him so successful personally and professionally.
He is able to get the best of the best from the artists he works with. How does he do this? By breaking down problems into small steps. For example, a singer songwriter he was working with was having trouble getting his ideas out on paper or in song. He was having a severe case of writers block. So...
Rick gave him a super simple assignment: go home and write one word on a piece of paper that related to the idea he wanted to express in his song. Sounds crazy right?
I find it to be total genius. Anyone can write one word on a piece of paper in 24 hours, but it can be the simple act of doing so that breaks the paralysis of the creative process.
Simple. Effective. Doable. You might want to give that a try if you are feeling stuck.
You can listen to the entire interview here, it's full of gems you can apply to your own life.
