This podcast episode was originally recorded on May 5, 2020. We wanted to bring this episode back from the archives because we thought it fit in nicely with our current fitness and wellness themed giveaway. We've cleaned up the audio a bit and hope that you enjoy the episode with owner Charlie Gower talking about his journey in building The Nue Co.

Josh sits down with The Nue Co. co-founder Charlie Gower. The Nue Co. makes supplements that bridges alternative medicine and proven scientifically backed ingredients. Charlie and his wife and co-founder Jules, began Nue Co. to help improve people’s health whether that’s the health of their gut, skin, or sleep. After getting fed up with mediocre synthetic products, he and his wife started to take matters into their own hands to deliver products that will help and heal people with ingredients that won’t harm the earth.

Josh sits down with Tether Straps co-founder Kevin Novotny. Tether Straps make straps to help keep your accessories safe and secure when romping around in the outdoors. The idea for the company originally came while Kevin was searching around to find the right gift (in this case a camera strap) for Tether Straps co-founder and accomplished photographer, Natalie Grant. He couldn’t find leather straps he liked to get as a gift and after much deliberation, they decided to develop their own. That initial project is how camera straps became the first product they came to offer. Since then they’ve been developing some other products and their journey has largely been a grand success but, not without some interesting twists and turns.

Josh sits down with Limm co-founder Patrick Grimm. Limm makes at-home workout equipment to make working at home easier and more enjoyable. Limm was born from Patrick and his two co-founders (his wife, and his father) started this family business because they wanted the right tools to get the best workout at home that they could. They noticed that what they were looking for wasn’t exactly readily available and after catching the entrepreneurial spark from a friend, they realized there was nothing stopping them from filling in the fitness gap. Now, not only do they enjoy all the products themselves, they are absolutely dedicated to making more products that outperform what’s currently on the market.

This podcast episode was originally recorded on December 24th, 2019. We wanted to bring this episode back from the archives because we thought it fit in nicely with our current giveaways. We've cleaned up the audio a bit and hope that you enjoy the episode with founder Drew Clark talking about how and why he started California Cowboy.

Josh sits down with California Cowboy founder Drew Clark. California Cowboy makes Innovative versions of short sleeve button-downs and apres-ski shirts. They exist to help you celebrate the togetherness of being outside and have even built some handy functions into the designs of their apparel that seriously capture that spirit. Clark grew up surfing and skiing quite a bit but, was a lot better at socializing and that’s partially where he originally got the inspiration to launch a brand like California Cowboy. He loved the aesthetic and style of vintage surf and ski, wanted to create a brand and product line that focused on bringing people together to focus on the outdoors. With over 15 years in the apparel industry, it’s no surprise that California Cowboy is already starting to become a household name.

Josh sits down with Abaco Polarized founder Greg Sarkin. Abaco Polarized makes high quality polarized sunglasses backed by a lifetime warranty (and they MEAN lifetime). Originally starting as a boutique sunglasses brand, Abaco has grown over the years to offer more and more styles of sunglasses and even blue light sunglasses but, what really sets them apart is their customer service which seems to blow competitors out of the water. It’s one thing to offer a great product at an incredible price but, another to offer the customer service to back it up. Abaco is a prime example of a brand that goes above and beyond to make sure their customers get the most out of their products and that’s something we love to see!
