Sauna Talk is a show about the authentic sauna experience. Recorded (often) on the sauna bench, we talk with interesting guests about sauna including such aspects as building sauna, enjoying sauna, and health and wellness benefits to sauna. The rising sauna tide is lifting many boats and we look forward to some left turns that we hope to keep listeners on and off the more enjoyable and less trampled authentic sauna trail.

Have you ever sat on the sauna bench with someone who has created a product that hundreds of millions of people have experienced?

During this episode of Sauna Talk, you will be able to get into the head and mind of serial entrepreneur Scott Olson. Thanks to extended sauna rounds on the bench, we will get deep into Scott’s mindset at the time when inline skating was just an idea. We will learn about what it took to turn a vision into a prototype, then into trial, and finally into a product that you either own or have experienced many times. Polyurethane wheels hold an edge, able to push off, like on ice.

The story of Rollerblade is fascinating. What is equally fascinating is Scott Olson’s approach to creative thinking: how to turn ideas into marketable products. These tips can apply to inventors, dreamers, or just anyone looking for a more creative approach to their day.  We will learn more about Scott’s fitness based products.

You have to have a lot of confidence to walk into a bar wearing a sarong.

Overlying all of this is Scott’s appreciation of his place in the world. On the sauna bench, the true nature of someone’s character reveals itself. Scott presents no ego. He is a fun guy who is humble, open to input from others, and exhibits a philosophy and joy of life that I hope you appreciate as much as I do.
