CUSTOMERS. PRODUCT. MARGINS.
This week’s guest on the Words With Oz Podcast is the co-founder of performance-wear powerhouse 2XU, Jamie Hunt.
Jamie is a former professional triathlete turned businessman with a unique passion for textile and fabric; and a relentless view of hard work.
I asked Jamie on the show because of his opinion on what it takes to own the niche of an industry; and the proof he has put in play with the quality and success of 2XU.
Jamie’s specific essay question was:
“What are the elements of focus that enable elite results?”
We spoke on prioritising family in his outrageous schedule, the support it takes to make a dent in business, his fortune as a triathlete and plenty on the challenges we’ll face creating a billion dollar company.
Enjoy the Show.
