#38 – How I Started Mini Truck Scene and Went From Photography to Apparel

Back in 2011, I had no idea what a simple domain name purchase would lead to. It initially started as a place to store my truck show photography, but over the years, that grew to all sorts of merchandise.

I started small, just some stickers, koozies, and super basic tshirts. For awhile, I even carried some products like DVDs from other companies in the scene.

In early 2013, I was ready to take this idea to a whole new level. My first vendor booth weekend was a success and I was hooked.

Listen to my story from how this idea became a reality, how my photography led to starting a clothing line, how I was able to finance everything, some simple tips I learned along the way, and so much more.
