Such a great idea, the best take away for me was when he described how it started...he found an immediate avenue to execute (on the dreamless forum) ... started threadless in a small forum website and as an idea...and went from there. Everywhere I go I see that the ideas that work started from people who repetitively executed things and went with it when it worked. Applicable to my small business and current ideas...thanks dude.

Great interview. I’ve been a big fan of this company, their ethos and their work and community for a while now. Love the part about the company “starting one hour after he thought of it”, true entrepreneurial and pioneering spirit!
