On our first segment we welcomed Jim Coble CEO of DQC international, and 13 fishing. Jim is a true entrepreneur, coming from a small town in Iowa and learning the trade of the bait and tackle business. As he used to work for big companies, he realized that he did not like the way things were operated and wanted to move into a more personable way of doing business. As he told Jamie, therefore he created DQC international. DQC international is a growing manufacturer of several different tackle and hunting brands including 13 fishing, Sixth Sense, and No. 8 Tackle Co. His goal is to impact the world in a positive way to the outdoors and through his company he is the fastest growing fishing tackle manufacturer in the world winning many awards. He spoke with us about his story and how his business is now growing in Florida and has become the largest manufacturer for bait and tackle in Florida.
