We've interviewed thousands of successful founders at Starter Story and asked what advice they would give to entrepreneurs who are just getting started.

Here's the best advice we discovered for starting an axe throwing business:

#1: James Anderson, founder of Forged Axe Throwing:

We chatted with with James, founder of Forged Axe Throwing ($60K/month). In our interview, James says:

The current marketing/advertising narrative is that print is dead/dying and you should spend all your money online. Our experience has been different. There’s been lots of “traditional” advertising avenues that have produced huge results.


As soon as you launch a business you sort of get a “new business halo”, there’s lots of buzz and people just want to come check you out! That fades quickly though so don’t rely on it for too long.
