Dave Munson used to teach English in Mexico. He needed a bag to carry his school books, but not just any bag…he wanted one that Indiana Jones would use.
Without any experience in designing bags (he has a theology degree), he asked a local leather worker to make a bag for him.
I don’t know the first thing about designing leather accessories, so I decided to ask Dave all about it. Along the way, I learned about his story, his thoughts on procrastination, and more.
Some of the highlights of our conversation include:
- Why he spends a lot of time at Army Surplus stores when designing new bags
- How much his first bag cost to get made in Mexico
- His most important long-term habits
- What you should do this week if you don’t always want to work for “the man” but you’re not sure what to do
- His first entrepreneurial project
- Harness the power of positive peer pressure
