Scrappy Underdogs: Chris & Jen Hudak of Escapod Travel Trailers, Part 2
Innovative, paradigm-shifting, champion-inspired cult camper moving and shaking! Jen and Chris Hudak have moved Escapod travel trailers, shaken up their own world, they’re changing the world of teardrop campers, and they’ve built a collaborative business model in a burgeoning CoupleCo effort that began in a garage, expanded to an antique gas station with one employee, and now occupies an enormous space filled with employees in what was once a Ford dealership. In two years, they’ve expanded production exponentially, moving from selling dozens of units to hundreds. And they still can’t meet the overwhelming demand. In short: the Hudaks are crushing it. In this episode, we discuss the realities of success, what it really means, and the emotional preparedness it requires. And what happens when, despite your desire to remain totally independent, you really do need to consider using OPM (Other People’s Money)?
