#058 – Jeremy Redman: Combining Community & Tech Startups with the Not Boring Business in a Box

  • April 17, 2018

Today we toast to building community! I met Jeremy Redman, host of Not Boring Business and Founder of AirFive, at one of his live podcast events just a few weeks ago. It was an amazing event where we enjoyed good beer, great company, and a collaborative atmosphere: the perfect ingredients for a forking awesome community!

AirFive has gone through a few different iterations – a digital business card app, an alumni association app, event influencers, and drink subscriptions – but, at every step, it’s been about connecting people. Today, AirFive is democratizing film distribution by helping creators set up screenings and build community.

Jeremy bundled what he learned throughout the process of shifting the business into a product called Business in a Box, “an entire tech business in a box.” It combines the tech you need to create mobile apps and build a website with the knowledge you need to get that business off the ground. (Plus, you can get 50% off by using the code FORKER when you sign up!) Then the Not Boring Business podcast brings it all together by bringing community and promotion to startup events. Wow!!

Jeremy’s Bio:

Jeremy Redman is an entrepreneur and podcaster who founded AirFive, a film distribution company, and Not Boring Business, a brand built to motivate pivoters, freelancers, solopreneurs, and side hustlers with the product “Business in a Box.” After starting his career in accounting for god knows what reason, he motivated himself to live the life he wanted and accomplish his goals and the goals of the people around him as well.

I love the world of food and beverage, everything about it, it’s soo damn sexy! Every time we eat and drink it ignites us sensually…the look, texture, taste, smell, sound all in a unique combination, encapsulating a moment in time. The act of sharing a meal with friends, chatting, eating, and drinking together is so forking perfect. It is a feeling that echoes a sense that All Is Good! Very, Very good!
