“When you quiet the mind and think about developing a product, you realize there has to be a big idea behind the niche space you’re targeting.” ~Mark Schmid
Habits2Goals is proud to present a conversation with inventor, entrepreneur, and leader Mark Schmid, aka “Schmiddy.”
With 32 years of product design and brand launch experience, Mark has created multiple industry-leading companies in the action sports space. His current venture is Click Carabiners, which takes the foundational hardware rock climbers use to stay alive and turns it into niche skate, snowboard, and ski tools that clip right on to a belt loop or backpack.
Mark’s entrepreneurial journey started right out of high school, with surf and skateboarding ventures fueled by his own passions. He soon began inventing and marketing skateboarding products in a world before YouTube, successfully expanding into more action-sports ventures.
Listen in to hear more about what sparked Mark’s unique entrepreneurial journey, how to generate space for creative vision, and how to become personally responsible for your own happiness and misery—in life and in business.
Enjoy the episode!
