    Attacking The Private Label Game with Shane Levi Gould

    Attacking The Private Label Game with Shane Levi Gould

    Chances are you have bought plenty of private labeled products in the past and didn’t even know it. The seamless integration of a brand and a product created is not by chance. Private label clothing production gives retailers and individuals the opportunity to create their own brand without having to design a product from scratch. It offers the ability to grow as a business and allows for control over the look and style of the product; however it is not without risk. By fully understanding the terms, processes, pitfalls, and benefits you can better decide whether private labeling is right for you. Today I caught up with Shane Levi Gould of Fuel Clothing at his headquarters in Hilton Head, SC. Shane breaks down what private labeling means to him and how he has been able to implement it into his growing list of customers, or as he likes to call them, partners.

    From Cabrinha Kite Rider to Company Owner with Jon Modica

    From Cabrinha Kite Rider to Company Owner with Jon Modica

    Everyone has seen the video of some kook kiteboarder getting dragged up and down the beach or even worse thrown into a hotel. Well, my experience was no different when I got tossed into a parked car. I think in the beginning we had no choice but to take a licking as the equipment was constantly trying to keep up with the proposed dangers. Enter the sport now and you will come across all sorts of new technologies that have opened the doors in terms of safety. Increasing the exposure and joy of being on the water. Cabrinha kites are leading this charge and have been behind any major kite innovation. To further grow the sport Cabrinha recently crowned their new leader and owner, Jon Modica. Jon brings years of experience not only as a team rider but also as an intelligent entrepreneur. In this episode, we break down Jon’s tech companies, how he sold them, and what it took to buy Cabrinha Kiteboarding. I also give you a quick recap of what I learned during my 26 days on the road during COVID.
