Episode 120: Drew Whitcomb and WearTesters

How you can find good reviewers online for any product you’re thinking about buying?  This episode shares the story of Drew Whitcomb, cofounder of WearTesters, a leading shoe, apparel and sporting goods review website and YouTube channel. Before WearTesters, Drew worked in sales and marketing at various startups, PayPal and General Mills. 

In this conversation, we talk about how to find your niche, follow your gut, and turn passions into things – whether they remain hobbies or become your full-time thing. We also talk some incredibly fun details about shoes, shoe/product testing, and why it’s important in today’s world of mass consumerism…including the coolest and “most interesting” things testers get sent…
