First Exposure to the Outdoors

I was into the Outdoors before sports, it's always been the outdoors. Growing up both my parents just loved the outdoors and had a passion for it. We'd camp, fish, hike and had campfires and smores. In the Desert, Mountains, you name it, man. And so I have many, many fond memories at an early age of being in the outdoors.

Advice, tips

one of my favorite quotes is this “don't ask yourself what this world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that because that's what this world needs”.

If there are people out there that are interested in pursuing the outdoor business, I'd say follow your passions and pursue your passions and money will follow. I got into fishing because I love fishing. I started writing articles and doing photos just for myself about fishing. And then all sudden one day some people started saying, hey, why don't you write me an article about this? So next thing I know it was in a magazine and why don't you write me an article about this? And the next thing I know I'm doing a collab with Jared Smith about our book fishing trails and next thing you know, I was in this industry and started making some money. Without even really trying to pursue this industry. So find your passion and pursue it. And maybe some money will follow.
