Q: How did you get started on RinseKit?

It all really just stemmed from my love for surfing. I was tired of getting in my car salty and dirty with no time to go home to shower before work and the only real portable shower available at the time was the cheap solar bag. I'd drive up and down the beach all the time looking for a good place to surf and saw that most people were just using old laundry detergent bottles to rinse themselves off. So I recognized that there was an opportunity to make a shower system that was portable and easy to use.

I had my own pool construction business at the time so I made the first version out of PVC pipe. I had several people ask me how I made the shower in the back of my truck so I started to sell them​. After making a few design changes, we launched the brand and ran the business out of my garage. It all just grew from there.

The worst thing you can do as a business owner or entrepreneur is to try to mundanely copy what other businesses around you are doing. Don’t be afraid to be a pioneer.. and don’t resort to outsourcing everything.
