Startup Dallas Episode 80 – Zach Redington | Lounge County

Check out the audio version of the show on iTunes here and Stitcher here.


Zach Redington is on the show today.  His story is pretty typical:  the old “Criminal Defense attorney who just wants to be comfortable so he starts his own lounge pants company while on vacation in Amsterdam” story we’ve heard so many times.  Find out how Zach and his business partner have turned this idea into a thriving business and the challenges they’ve faced in launching and marketing this business.

But first, today’s show is sponsored by NoD.  Located in North Dallas, this co-working space goes way beyond simply having a place to work.

NōD’s mission is to enable startups, designers, developers, and independent workers to grow and thrive as one big happy creative community. They do this by creating an environment where entrepreneurs and freelancers can create, connect and collaborate.

Today’s show is also sponsored by Magic Production Group’s new Startup Package of videos.  As you may know, Magic is the company that powers this whole show.  And we’ve put together some special pricing to further support the startup community here in Dallas.

As a startup it’s critical for you to quickly communicate what you do.  And we all know video has the power to do just that.

Well now, we’ve made it a little bit easier to make that power work for you.

Whether it’s an animated explainer video, a company profile video, or an authority-building segment on the American Ventures interview program, you get to kickstart your video brand presence quickly.  And for a very manageable price.

Zach is so great.  I had so much fun in this interview and loved the insights he brought into starting a product-based business.  Go check out LoungeCounty.com – connect with them on social, and be on the lookout for their Kickstarter campaign so you can finally start napping in comfort!  I’ll have links from the show and the video version at startupdallas.co/80.  80!  Wow.

Also, if you’re in the Dallas area and you want to meet up, you can join me in North Dallas at the Coffee House Cafe every Tuesday morning at 8am for the Dallas Open Coffee Club where my co-host, Stephen Olmon and I host an hour of talking tech, startups and digital lifestyle.  You can find us on Meetup.com and search BigDOCC.  If you’re closer to downtown, this group’s founder, Michael Sitarzewski hosts his Tuesday morning meeting at 1700 Pacific.  And for those of you in other parts of DFW, there are coffee clubs now in Downtown Arlington, Oak Cliff, Fort Worth, Irving/Las Colinas, Southlake and Denton.  If you hit any of these, you’ll meet and get to know some great folks in the startup community.

Alright. You know what time it is – Let’s go start something!
