A Quick Breakdown

  • Stefan Loble did not inheret $1M and quit his job.
  • He did not go raise VC (Venture Capital) or Angel investment capital.
  • He did not have twenty years of experience in the men’s apparel industry.

What was his qualification for greatness?

Passion.

He had enough of the 9 am to 5 pm routine working for someone else.

And he believed that a pair of pants could help him get that much closer to the life he wanted to live.

The life that you and I want to live.  Adventure meets the boardroom.

The Kickstarter Campaign

When Stefan launched his Kickstarter campaign his goal was only $13,500.  So what made this campaign so successful?

  • Was it because he had a Tribe following already in place already begging for his next product offering?
  • Or was it because he had a Social Media megaphone through which he marketed the story?

Let’s find out.
