“Never, never, never, never, give up.” – Winston Churchill in his comencment speech at Oxford University during WWII
Jim started his business as a jeep tour and exploration business for European tourists. Right after investing over a million dollars and two days after setting things in motion, the events of 911 happened and overnight, European travel to the U.S. all but stopped. Listen to the pivot of all pivots to turn things around.
After the devastating challenges of 911 Jim came up with the idea that he could take his business model and focus instead on U.S. customers hungry for outdoor adventures on motorcycles.
