How a Canadian Food blogger sells her own tripod and outsources video editing

Canadian food blogger Kiran has a unique business of selling a custom tripod and outsourcing video editing for food bloggers. She has an original business and original story that is inspirational and information packed.I met Kiran and her partner while living in Bangkok with my parents. We ended up working at the same co-working space and later both relocated to Chiang mai. I think she is a good role model for following the lean method of starting a business to reduce risk.

GHS 005 (Part 2 of 2) – Successful KickStarter Travel Shirt Campaign 2 of 2

Kyle is a local success story in Chiang Mai who had an idea for a travel shirt while traveling in Asia. He developed a stylish high performance Travel Shirt and successfully raised close to $92,000 US on Kickstarter. I was fortunate Kyle was generous with his time and we manage to sit down at the Sangdee Cafe in Nimman to record a 2 part interview. Kyle is a tall guy with an imposing physical presence, but once we started talking it’s hard not to be engaged by his story and the way to tells it. In the first part you’ll learn about Kyle’s early travels in Thailand and what led to the creation of the travel shirt. I also get a bit deeper to and learn more about his mindset and how he leveraged relationships to accelerate his knowledge. Kyle’s approaches business seriously and the experience and wisdom you’re going to hear on this episode is both interesting and golden.
