His Quest To Create The Perfect Hammock Led To A Million-Dollar, One-Man Business
I’ve known Wes for many years and I was so excited to celebrate his success.
Noticing a growing number of rugged hammocks popping up on the college campuses around him, Johnson, based in Raleigh, N.C., saw a gap in the marketplace for one that was ultra-comfortable to sleep in. When he met two brothers named Lawson who were traveling to outdoor festivals selling hand-sewn hammocks, he bought their inventory with a $30,000 loan from a friend and soon found himself running a side business selling them.
