This is definitely one of the most interesting, creative, and fun ideas I’ve seen online in a long time.

Nathaniel Houghteling and Kai HassonNathaniel Houghteling and Kai Hasson were fed up with day jobs staring at computers all day, so they quit and did the most logical thing ever…decided to become amateur boxers (oh, and created a brand and business model around it).

Enter White Collar Brawler. Nate and Kai have documented the entire process and have turned into one of the hottest web shows of 2010 with two episodes released a week online.

Possibly even more interesting is the business model behind White Collar Brawler, the vision for the brand, how they are tapping into social media to create experiences online and off…and much more.

In this interview, Nate and Kai give us a rare behind-the-scenes look, including:

  • Where the idea came from.
  • Why they decided to create White Collar Brawler.
  • How they got this going. Budget? Crew? Team?
  • Why they decided to release two shows a week.
  • The keys to marketing the show.
  • Their business model. Where is the bling coming from?
  • How they have leveraged social media to create a loyal following.
  • What they are hoping the series accomplishes.
  • Advice for people thinking about doing their own web show.
  • …and much, much, more.

This is one of those interviews that I was extra excited about and there are some delicious nuggets and takeaways here for any creative entrepreneur.
