Interview with inventor, Brian Davis: “How I crushed Kickstarter TWICE”

I’m thrilled to share this interview with you. Brian Davis is a friend, inventor, and an entrepreneur; he makes products that solve problems for cycling enthusiasts.

And he’s a ‘trepLife Dad with a wife and two young kids.

Brian is the only person I know to crush a Kickstarter campaign not once, but TWICE. He talks about how to rock your Kickstarter in the interview. As well as how he made the transition from a full-time job to being a full-time entrepreneur. If you’re an entrepreneur looking to get your product off the ground, or just someone with a goal in mind but in need of funds to get there, there are plenty of crowdfunding sites out there that are worth investigating, with GoFundMe being one of the more popular ones.

And he has a new Kickstarter campaign running for a product called the BackBottle that solves the issue of hydration for longer rides, and fits in your jersey.

If you’re a cyclist, please support his Kickstarter here.

Here’s a pic of his latest invention:

So proud of this dude, and lucky to call him a friend.
