#190: Our 30-Day Challenge, Part 1: Travis & His New Store

This week we decide to do a 30-day challenge and explore the early ideas of Travis’ new store in the food niche. Compared to BDancewear, this is a new venture that he doesn’t have much expertise within manufacturing so it’s breaking new ground for him. Terry’s 30-day challenge is to publish a video blog 3 times a week for the next month to sell more blankets.

Topics Discussed:

  • How does a new business idea form and get started
  • The early days of Forever Home Blankets
  • Manufacturing in an industry you don’t have expertise in
  • Early ideas to get the word out and get market feedback
  • Mistakes made when trying to launch Black Turtle Co (laptop sleeve)
  • DIY your sample products when it comes to food

    I like the challenges you guys have for yourselves. I know you kind of mentioned that you have something like a 30 day action plan, do you guys mind sharing a more general version of your plans? Something that beginners can use to help them get started.
