The Bootstrapped Boom Of Action Sportswear With Shane Levi Gould Of Fuel

‘Bootstrapping’ your business is defined as starting a business with minimal resources. Essentially it’s a ‘do-it-yourself’ scenario where you aren’t using any funding other than your own. We at BossStart are intrigued by any successful business that has come into its own through this type of start-up process. This week we were fortunate enough to snag an interview with Shane Levi Gould, Creative Director and Founder of Fuel. If you’ve ever been involved in the […]

Attaining Wellness With The Help Of Dr. Stephanie Bien, D.O. And The Executive Med Club of Tampa

Dr. Stephanie Bien, D.O. is the founder of The Executive Med Club of Tampa. Sounds prestigious, right? It is.

She’s been involved in medicine for over 30 years and recently decided to step out on her own to offer her self-developed proactive approach to healthy living and disease prevention. As […]

The Average Fella Robert Gozzolla And His Superior Screen Printing Business

The Genius Of Human Billboards With Jason Sadler Of iwearyourshirt.com

Social Media is a beast and it’s obviously here to stay. Some feel that its bombarding effects are diluting the effectiveness of marketing/advertising on the internet.

In any case, those who refuse to embrace it as a necessary tool in business will undoubtedly suffer the consequences and surely be left in the dust. One company that appreciates and runs with this newer idea of social […]

The Guitar Trader – Asheville, NC

Most people hear ‘Asheville, NC’ and they think: ‘Hippie/Folk-town’. I tend to agree with them. And I love it! Asheville is a great fit here at www.bossstart.com and will most likely be featured numerous times on our site. Reason being: They eat, sleep, drink, breathe, and (any other natural or necessary function of life): LOCAL. Independent businesses thrive here. Community is singularly the most important concern on the minds of nearly everyone who would chose […]

The Non-Profit Entrepreneurial Mission Of Dick Sanford: Operation Warm

The U.S. Census Bureau states that as of 2009 43.6 million people were in poverty, while the official poverty rate was 14.3 percent of the entire U.S. population. While these numbers pale in comparison to the 1 BILLION children that live in poverty across the entire globe (that’s 1 in 2 children – statistically – by the way), it stands to reason that something has to be done. One inspired person who heard the call […]

The Sonic Boom Of SMULE With Dr. Ge Wang

There are over 300,000 Apps currently available for the iPhone. That’s not even mentioning the 1000+ Apps at the new Mac App Store. With such an abundant selection, it seems highly unlikely that anyone could ever experience or utilize so many to any reasonable degree. When you point out that the primary source of growth for almost all of these Apps is typically from word-of-mouth and satisfied customers; it’s an almost baffling market. Viral Marketing […]
