Season 1,


December 06, 2017

Hey guys, Rick here to let you know about a Special Bonusode dropping today. Just in time for your Holiday shopping I’m excited to give you the first Outdoor Biz Holiday Gear Guide.

I have interviewed over 50 members of the Outdoor Industry tribe and peppered them with questions like what was your first outdoor job to what are your favorite books. One question that has struck a cord, and even stumped some of your peers has been what is your favorite piece of Outdoor Gear under $100.

If you’re looking for a curated shopping list for the outdoor lover in your family or friends circle this is it. Go to Outdoor to see the gear my guests in the biz can’t live without. Then either march out to your nearest outdoor specialty store and buy, buy, buy of for convenience you can also hit the links to some of our favorite shops and buy on line too.

Unfortunately on some interviews I forgot to ask the gear question! So to those guests I apologize.

And while you’re at it don’t forget to subscribe to the Outdoor Biz Podcast on iTunes, Stitcher or wherever you listen to your podcasts.
