If you are thinking about starting your own business, here is a list of resources I endorse and personally used for the Building a Backpack project.
Bonamark: The only agency I use for trademarking services. Fairly priced and INCREDIBLE customer support.
BagMe: Run by backpack veteran Luke Reynolds, BagMe helps us handle sourcing, production management, and quality control – all on the ground in Ho Chi Minh.
Treehouse Designs: Immanuel Gloeser runs Treehouse Designs who helped us take our designs and Tech Pack to the next level.
Fiverr: Ideal for finding graphic design work, and where I first hired Pablo who is taking lead in our branding.
Upwork: Perfect for finding a soft goods designer and where I found Jon who is designing the backpack.
Bluehost: If you are starting your first website, Bluehost’s low pricing and great customer service makes them a no-brainer. This is also where I purchase domains from.
