ABOUT FILTHY RICH
YouTuber, mechanic, all around handyman, Filthy Rich is a die hard dieselhead, and inventor of the Tape Boss.One day when working with a few of his employees, an idea came to him on how to meet what for him was a very practical need. "When the guys were bugging me with little things, like 'where's the skill saw, Rich’, I'd forget my measurements for what I was doing in my head. So I thought, 'somebody needs to invent a voice recorder that attaches to tape measures.'"
“If you’re not filthy, you’re not Rich.”
In his younger days, Rich’s go-getter attitude enabled him to accomplish a lot. Every work situation implanted another gift into his growing toolbox of talent, beginning with his apprenticeship with a mechanic, then opening his own construction business. His ambitious work ethic helped establish a solid construction company. It flourished for a period of time, enabling him to begin building a house for he and his young wife with the very skills he used in his business.
An appeal was made for a team to go to Burkina Faso, a country in Africa. "I was sitting in church, and one guy, who had been on the trip the year before, said they needed help building a mechanic's shop. Obviously, he was talking to me. I'm a mechanic. I ran a construction company. That's me, I'm going!"
“Everybody in the airport’s looking at me like I’m crazy! I’m thinking, ‘I know, nobody’s ever tried to bring tires over before, as checked luggage.’”
— Rich Bosch
It's clear to anyone who knows Rich that this struggling country has endeared itself to him, to the point that he is contemplating possibly returning there when is his two children are older. But until that day, he knows another way to continue supporting them. Remember that invention?
