[amazon_link id=”0810996103″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ][/amazon_link]Is this any way to run a business?, the little T-shirt company that could, gambles every day that good kharma will deliver brilliant designs into its hands and that consumers will buy them.

Incredibly, it’s a winning bet.

Threadless was launched when co-founder Jake Nickell won an online t-shirt design competition in 2000. He thought it was so much fun that he started his own contest and a company grew from it.

JAKE NICKELL podcast excerpt: “We come up with six to nine new designs every week. We would much rather print a new design than reprint an old one. We’re all about change.”
