Dreams In Drive

On this episode of the Dreams In Drive podcast, entrepreneur, sales & customer expert, Mission Belt Co. founder, and Shark Tank alum Nate Holzapfel shares his keys to success and what it takes to be a successful brand builder and hustler. He talks about his early life growing up in rural America, why he fell in love with sales and his techniques for creating personal and professional success. This episode was actually recorded in July 2015 for the BRANDMAKERS series on ranacampbell.com. At the end of the interview, Nate asked me what format would the final product be in. I told him that I was thinking about starting a podcast but that I'd be transcribing it and posting as a written interview. Nate's advice to me? Make it happen. Do whatever it takes to get the equipment to start creating podcasts. I ended up never posting this on the site. Five months from our conversation, I launched Dreams In Drive. 19 episodes in, I'm sharing our conversation. The sound quality isn't the greatest. My interviewing isn't as refined....but the message is still there. What will you do to MAKE IT HAPPEN today? My answer to you is: whatever it takes. Put your hustler hat on, stop complaining, and start getting s**t done.

212: Nate Holzapfel Interview - The Nate State of Mind

Outlier On Air | Founders, Disruptors, & Mavens

"If you're not telling your story right, no one cares." - Nate Holzapfel About: Nate Holzapfel - Co-Founder of Mission Belt Company, appeared on Shark Tank Overview: Though Nate does not have a college degree, he has become a very successful entrepreneur. He was able to secure Daymond John from Shark Tank as an investor in his belt company and is focused on giving back to third world countries as well as sharing what he knows with other business owners. Highlights:Mission Belt Co: Nate realized that belt branding hadn't really been done before. He saw a hole in the market and made the plunge. His passion is creating an awesome product for his customers. Giving Back: Each time Mission Belt sells a belt, a dollar goes to fight hunger and poverty worldwide through micro-lending. These micro-loans range from $25-$500 dollars per loan. Staff: 40-50 employees, and are based in Northern Utah. Challenges: Early on, Mission Belt struggled with getting the word out. Nate realized that he needed to create his brand identity and do everything he could to sell his product. As a leader in his company, he needed to keep the energy flowing to get his passion to the salesman by providing them with the tools they need. Shark Tank Appearance: When you apply to be on the show, you are up against 40,000-50,000 people who apply each year. Nate submitted his audition via email and was lucky enough to get a call back. Then he did a dry audition in front of hundreds of people and got the attention he was looking for because of his ability to be a master story-teller. Four months later, he eventually made his way in front of the investors and made his pitch. Daymond John ended up investing in Mission Belt and after Nate's airing on that show, sold $1million in sales 3 weeks later. Now, Nate spends a lot of time talking with Daymond and benefiting from his mentorship. Advice for Entrepreneurs: Start your company now. Hire experts to do work for you. You don't need to do everything. You don't need an amazing degree to be successful. You can start with nothing and get to where you want to be. The more successful business people we have in the world, the better off we are.Subscribe to the Outlier Newsletter: Click HereConnect With Nate:Website | @NateHolzapfel | Facebook | Instagram | TheNateStateofMind.com | YoutubeIf you enjoy Outlier On Air, please Subscribe & Review on iTunes or Stitcher Sponsors Flitch Creative Build your brand identity with Flitch Creative's eXpress Packages.

Episode edited by the great J Scott Donnell Bio from thenatestateofmind.com Similarly to innovators such as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and even Elizabeth Holmes, Nate dropped out of college to pursue a career in sales. Having sold everything from cars, to insurance in Mexico, to even houses over the phone, Nate Holzapfel became an expert in sales & marketing. He states, “I’ve always been good at my job and was always a top performer. But I felt trapped. I sold everything I own and put all of my efforts into the best idea I had. The rest is history.” In June 2012, he launched Mission Belt Company. The accessory industry has always held a huge portion of the fashion industry, however, no one company had focused solely on belts. Fashion houses designed and created them as an afterthought. Nate had a vision to create a company that made only belts, the first of its kind in the fashion industry to ever truly brand a belt. Oakley was first with Sunglasses, Skull Candy was successful with making headphones a fashionable accessory, and Nate’s vision was to accomplish this with Mission Belts. In spring of 2013, Nate appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank, pitching the Mission Belt to seek a capital investment. He struck a deal with fashion mogul and branding expert, Daymond John. Nate pitched to the Sharks that the “old way of selling is dead.” His ideology and method proved not only correct, but to be a huge success.
