We have a special guest today and a special topic. This is not your average podcast, and it may not be for everyone. One of the most common questions I get asked is “How do I get into the hunting industry?” Which is a great question! How do I get paid to do what I love? As an entrepreneur I love this conversation almost as much as talking about elk hunting. Last year at SHOT show I ran into @mattbusbice and we started talking about business. As a very successful entrepreneur I have a lot of respect for what he has built. Naturally I thought it would be a great guest to talk about how to get into the industry and build a career doing something you love. This episode may not be for everyone but for some this episode may just change your life. I think there is some solid advice throughout the episode and I can’t thank Matt enough for taking the time to share his story with us. Matt Busbice along with his brother and dad have built the american dream by taking one idea for a product and turning it into a very successful business. On top of that now turning it into multiple successful companies. Be sure to check out Matt’s newest shows by subscribing to My Outdoor Tv, you can use the promo could WGN for a free trial.
