100 Interviews with 100 Location Independent Entrepreneurs That Have Over $1,000,000 in Annual Revenue
Today listeners, we are joined by the founder of HighCappin.com and Agile Travel Bag, Matt Kowalak. Matt is the ‘go-to man’ when it comes to manufacturing apparel in China. High Cappin focuses on improving procurement and production processes for their clients that could typically encounter communication, logistical and quality problems with manufacturers. Matt also created the Agile Travel Bag and recently launched it on Kickstarter.
Today, we address the current state of manufacturing in China and where it is headed in the near future. In the middle of the show, Matt and I talk about the work that it takes to launch a successful Kickstarter and creating a travel bag from an idea, to releasing it on the market. Later in the show, we will address Matt's productivity levels from living, working and eating in the same building versus being location independent.
“You end up thinking that your presence is more important to your business that it is, and really, you’d probably do better if you just got out of the way.” Matt Kowalak
