Today on the podcast, I am interviewing the co-founder of Outdoorsy, Ryan Quinn.  Outdoorsy is a peer-to-peer RV sharing marketplace, where Alyssa and I have rented our RV out in the past year.  Since launching outdoorsy, Ryan has been traveling around in his van and recently upgraded to a large class A.  Outdoorsy has been one of the fastest growing startups in the RV space.

A few things we talk about on this episode:

  • How to decide which business ideas are worth pursuing
  • How to make money by renting your RV
  • Finding product-market fit
  • Using customer data to make improvements to your product

Quotes from this episode:

“As long as you can find a channel to the users, they are going to tell you exactly what they want.”

“If you need to be away from your computer more often, then you kinda need to hack and manufacture reasons to do so.  For us, it’s inflatable paddleboards.”
