Waking Up From Work

Creating A Custom Brand With Your Own Hands W/ Jeff of Exeter Drum Works

November 25, 2019

E34

Another episode out in the field! Join us today from Exeter Drum Works wood working shop in New Hampshire. Now I can’t say that being a drummer didn’t have anything to do with me choosing to go after this episode but it’s certainly good for anyone looking to make their own product, sell a boutique brand, or just likes to hear a hustle story.

We certainly talk drums but we also talk making the leap, getting your first income from your career, and competing as a small boutique brand against other larger manufacturers and competitors.

  • If you don’t like what’s made, make it

  • Competing with national brands

  • Tricks to keep committed to your dream

 

  • Vision’s effect on creators

 

  • Collaborate don’t compete

 

  • Band Roles

 

  • Music Instrument industry

 

  • Trends in musician product consumption
