Waking Up From Work

Making A Physical Product & Aligning Your Values W/ Horizon Active Sara & Drustin

October 7, 2019

E29

I met Sara and Drustin back in my undergrad at Plymouth State University. This week they just launched their USA made, sustainably made athletic wear clothing company! You can’t go into business against your morals and beliefs or one day you won’t feel good with what you’ve built.

Sara and Drustin saw a need for this product in the market and wanted it to be a new and original offering instead of a repeat product made however and where ever.

We talk creating a clothing line and coming up with a physical product fo the first time. Have you ever wanted to sell a product direct to consumer without housing the product? You can! By no means is this passive because these guys worked their ass off but once you have the systems in place there is some really cool stuff that can happen. Check it out.
