So this week’s episode we are talking to my friend Joe Constanty who has launched his brand from Kickstarter from China, Hong Kong, and USA at the same time – and truly has a global team and operation – between Shanghai, China – Southern China for production, and distribution in Las Vegas – Joe is a pro! So without further ado, let’s hear from the man himself!
