Josh sits down with TripOutside co-founder Reet Singh. TripOutside is a travel site created for outdoor enthusiasts who want to get outside, but don’t know where to start and make it super easy to book outdoor adventures. As an added bonus, they mindfully focus on excursions that have as little effect on the environment as possible. Having been longtime travel enthusiasts Reet, and his partner Julie, have found themselves being bogged down in the planning process and longed for something easier. It wasn’t long before they found themselves ditching the corporate world to kickstart a rapidly growing travel company!

Tune in as we take a closer look Logan went through to turn his idea in a dynamite product.
