This is episode one of a special series I’m doing with Spencer Houser and Peter Williams. They are in the early phase of their startup Super Pacific and we thought it would be fun to chronicle what it’s like to develop a new product from scratch and launch a new brand.

We’ll drop a new episode every couple weeks as we talk about how they came up with their idea, what the initial steps were and all the wins and challenges along the way.

Ans if you have questions please send them to rick@ricksaez.com and I’ll be sure and ask the guys in future episodes.

Show Notes

Introduction to the Outdoors

Spencer- I grew up in rural upstate New York, in an old farmhouse with 60 acres of land. So outdoors was just part of life. I just spent all my time outside, you know, making forts in the woods with my buddies and BMX tracks and, and camping out all summer long. Then in high school got into mountain biking and rock climbing. I was always into skiing.

Peter- I grew up in North Carolina, outside of Raleigh. We lived on some land, the back doors were like a pasture, with a couple of Ponds and a bunch of woods. Outdoors was kind of like the default setting, and after school go outside and when it was time to come in my mom blew a whistle. We would also go down to the beach in North Carolina. We spend a lot of time poking around the outer banks.
