Since starting these entrepreneur podcast I have had a pretty good amount of questions stream in. Most of you probably didn’t know this but since long before I had a podcast about hunting, these were the conversations I was having. I love talking entrepreneurship. Like hunting I don’t consider myself an expert of any kind merely one guy who has screwed a few things up over the years. Jaden and I sat down to discuss one of the common questions I get about business, How to know if it is a good idea. If you have thought at all about being your own boss, then you have probably also thought about what company you would start. Maybe while glassing for a big buck with your hunting partner you talk about some great idea. In this podcast we discuss a few things to consider as well as some ways to actually test your idea in the market without spending a fortune. I hope this at least gets the wheels turning and gets you thinking about ways to prove or disprove your next business venture.Show Notes: Intro – Branding & Audience – Should Your Business Reflect Your Avatar – Online Courses Vs Products & Services – The Importance of End-Goals – Using Jason Phelps as an Example – A Tangible Approach to an Idea – This podcast brought to you by Maven Optics. I keep getting ton of questions from folk asking how much I like my Maven Binoculars, and let just tell you I love my Mavens. I am not just saying this on the podcast I freaking love these optics and the company. The Holidays are just around the corner and a pair of Maven’s is a perfect gift. Maven Optics is direct to consumer optics company based out of Wyoming. Maven has taken out the middle man and are shipping you an amazing product right to your door. A lot of people are temped to compare Maven to similar price point optics but let me just say stop doing that. Maven will blow the price point away. They don’t have the middle man mark up and therefore have a surperier product at a great price. The other incredible thing about maven is that you can custom design your optics with thousands of different options. Just log onto Mavenbuilt.com and start playing with custom builder to design a pair of bino’s that are uniquely yours.

On X Maps is the number one hunt mapping system out there. One of the cool features I use constantly throughout season is sharing waypoints and areas with hunting buddies. From glassing locations to camp pins this feature gets used often. I will even use the area shape tool to highlight areas then send that to say hey this hillside should have a good buck or bull on it. On X recently launched their new 3D mapping which is still in beta and only on the desktop but this allows you to really see glassing points hillsides and overall terrain features in an area. Good luck out there this year and remember to download any maps you may need before hitting the hills and you will have access to all of your saved e-scouting plans.
