Episode #45: Kevin Lane – Inventor of Create A Castle, Sandcastle Genius

Kevin Lane, the Sandcastle Genius, Web Developer, and Founder of Create A Castle joins the show to share his journey revolutionizing the way families build sandcastles and snowcastles. Kevin was introduced to me by my buddy Brendan O’Marra, who appeared on Episode 2 of the podcast and was friends with Kevin in high school. As soon as I checked out the Create A Castle website, I was intrigued. I had never seen a product like this before, and was blown away that Kevin thought of the idea on a beach and has totally changed his life to bring it to fruition. Kevin is one of the most creative, kind, imaginative, and hard-working leaders you’ll ever hear from (see picture below). This episode covers everything from how he came up with the idea for Create A Castle to the role 3D printing played in the invention. Here’s a small sample of what you will hear in this episode:

  • How Kevin first became an entrepreneur with his web design business, Code Hounds
  • What it’s like doing market research at the beach
  • How Kevin splits his time between Code Hounds and Create A Castle
  • The creative inspiration that comes from sand sculptors
  • How Create A Castle differs from traditional sandcastle molds
  • Why listening to new music leads to new ideas
  • How Create A Castle got featured on LIVE with Kelly and Ryan and has QVC up next
  • The top GEICO commercials of all time
