  • Good WWW challenge for me –

    Okay, I was rigid in my closed-mindedness about a certain professional autoresponder. Refused to let go of a fear about something in their TOS… Well, 2015 is going to be the year for big growth for me, so I signed up! 🙂 I even shocked myself.

    • Did James say he loved onesies? lol

      • he was saying they are probably comfortable – never tried them since a baby though …

    • keep a CSV of your emails and you will be fine!

  • Hey guys love the conversations on the podcast. As an e-commerce entrepreneur I love your discussions! Met Ezra a couple times in SD the past couple of years and got some great advice from his meet-up talks and looking forward to getting plugged into one of the mastermind groups.

    I was listening to your banter about fashion… I’ve got a solution. I hooked up Ezra with one of our super premium Made in California tees which we call Amazingly Comfortable (perhaps Ezra could attest…) and what’s great is they’re made from “Ocean Friendly” organic cotton (as a surfer James could appreciate that). Solves both needs!

    Also I heard Ezra talk about marketing models, saying some people are “focused on this model that is not sustainable” and I figured I’d chime in because you guys are great at connecting the dots on complicated subjects and this ties into both of your passions and deep thinking minds.

    Believe it or not the fashion industry is one the the largest polluting industries on earth, as a lifelong surfer, spearfisherman, hunter as well as part time yogi I feel I have an obligation to be mindful about consumption, which is why I created a business to help protect our ocean playground, clearly our current model of consumption is not sustainable. After listening to 20+ hours of you guys talking it seems you’re probably on the more mindful side of consumption, so perhaps you guys could do an episode on business/mindfulness/giving back?

    • Have you seen “Chasing Dora” about his Natural surfboard and clothing J Bay dare. http://vimeo.com/18375746

      • Haven’t seen it but I’ll check it out! Thanks! Been watching Sunset. Think Medina will exit early at Pipe and Fanning can go back to back?
