Rob Barry ~ Current Series: 100 Interviews with 100 Location-Independent Entrepreneurs that have over $1,000,000 in Annual Revenue

I am continually inspired by entrepreneurs that push the limits of what is possible to follow through with their dreams of finding their own definition of success. Today guest is Rob Barry and during the interview, he shares with us how he went from being unemployed with $4680 left to his name, to a multi-million dollar exit.  It just goes to show the process of entrepreneurship is one that many times requires a period of ‘volunteer poverty’ and a sincere drive to make things happen.

Rob goes into the details about his experience mentioning a huge mistake that actually paid off big. He also addresses why he took a period away from location independence so he could focus on the growth of his business which led to another level of location independence. Lastly, Rob shares about life after selling his business and a few things that people need to be sufficiently happy.

“A lot of times I find in life, the truly valuable people to know, are the ones who don’t want everyone to know that they’re truly valuable to know.” Rob Barry

34:37: Three Things a Person Needs to Be Sufficiently Happy

“You don’t need to go out there and try to be the next Facebook. You don’t need to create some...brand new concept...that is going to revolutionize everything. What you need to do, is find a market, and deliver value to it.” Rob Barry

Today listeners we are joined by the founder of HighCappin.com and Agile Travel Bag, Matt Kowalak.  Matt is the ‘go-to man’ when it comes to manufacturing apparel in China. High Cappin focuses on improving procurement and production processes for their clients that could typically encounter communication, logistical and quality problems with manufacturers. Matt also created the Agile Travel Bag and recently launched it on Kickstarter.

Today we address the current state of manufacturing in China and where it is headed in the near future. In the middle of the show, Matt and I talk about the work that it takes to launch a successful Kickstarter and creating a travel bag from idea to releasing it on the market. Towards the end, we will address Matt's productivity levels from living, working and eating in the same building versus being location independent.

“You end up thinking that your presence is more important to your business that it is, and really, you’d probably do better if you just got out of the way.” Matt Kowalak
