He’s a Pedal Pusher and No, Not Bikes

Several weeks ago my neighbor Kevin Vandekrol told me why he quit his day job to focus on his business of creating kits for guitar pedals. I made a note to get back with him for an interview about what is a rather obscure business. It's really a great look at how an entrepreneur adjusts to the market and believes that high quality beats price. Kevin is the sole person behind Aion and is part of our series about people who have started their business during the pandemic or who have seen major growth over the past nine months. And the kicker is that he sells his products worldwide. It's a great story...have a listen!
