There are not many places I enjoy more than hiking along a river with a fishing pole or sitting in a duck blind with friends. Since I also love Small Business, I am always interested in meeting people that have created businesses in the outdoor space. Bringing together a love of outdoor activities like fishing and hunting with a revenue-generating business model seems like a dream come true to me.

Today we get to meet a business owner that has done just that. Brad Luttrell is the Cofounder of the GoWild social commerce platform for outdoor enthusiasts. Join your hosts Dave Hamilton and Shannon Jean as they learn about how Brad and his team have created GoWild.
