This is one of those stories that exemplifies why I started RISE. Those stories that are inspirational, interesting, and full of tips.

Kim OvertonA few years ago, Kim Overton was running on a lake trail when she came up with the idea for SPIbelt. Fast forward to three years later, and now SPIbelt:

  • Has sold 150,000 products (!) to date.
  • Has a slew of trusted manufacturers and partners.
  • And all of this was accomplished with just a few employees (!) (now THAT is smarter, faster, cheaper!).

In this interview, Kim spills the beans on how this all happened with plenty of advice for all of us. Enjoy!

PS: Thanks to Lyn Graft at BidModo for setting up this interview.

It also comes with all kinds of cool tools so you can make an MP3 out of the video and convert it for the Internet. Neat.
