About the speaker

Travis started by making candles on a stovetop in his apartment to prove that you don’t need a handout or to grow up with a silver spoon in your mouth to start a successful business. The initial business was named Manready Mercantile and was sold through manready.com and to retailers across the U.S. The focus was on apothecary goods, with everything made in small batches, right here in Houston, Texas. Most of the goods are unisex, but great for men…that’s the twist. In the past, many of these items were never purchased by men or for men. We felt that by revamping the packaging and branding, we could change that…which is exactly what happened.
