My guest today is a filmmaker, writer, RVer, and an entrepreneur.
After graduating college and taking a traditional office job like he thought he was supposed to do, he realized he wasn’t actually happy, and neither was his fiancé. So they decided to quit their jobs take a 50 state honeymoon.
My guest came up with the idea to travel 50 states and shine a spotlight on people who followed their passion or skill. Out of this trip came the documentary: Hourly America.
During the past year and a half, he has also worked a different job in all 50 states. On the side, he began building a blog about traveling in an RV, and it is quickly becoming his full-time business with some huge side projects on his plate.
Now, let’s hack …
In this 36-minute episode Heath Padgett and I discuss:

- Gaining valuable skills and experience before launching new ideas
- The importance of building products for your customers instead of the other way around
Listen to Hack the Entrepreneur below ...
This baby boomer learned something today! (This is the first time ever I referred to myself as a BB!)
The note I made was “find products for your audience/customers and not the other way around.”
