This episode was a little different than usual. It was recorded as a live video shown using Facebook Live. In this episode I talk with Eric Swahn from Eric Swahn Racing. Eric is an amateur racer who has done a lot of racing at the club level and really loves it. He also has quite an entrepreneurial streak and started selling merchandise online through eBay as a kid. Since motorcycle racing is a very expensive sport, unless you have lots of sponsors backing you, Eric decided to put his racing on hold for a little while as he focuses on building his online motorcycle gear and parts store. Right now, he operate his online store part time in addition to his regular day job, but his goal is to build his store up to the point where it not only supports him, but also provides the extra cash he needs to continue with his passion for motorcycle racing. Check out Eric’s story in this episode and check out his online store at shopesr.com.
