Amazon Marketplace – Day One: Stories of Entrepreneurship | Kirt Moritz, Nayked Apparel


When I was
growing up, my father was an attorney. And I would come home from school, approximately two p.m. in the afternoon, and he’d be in the swimming pool. I said, “Dad, why are you
swimming in the swimming pool?” He says, “I’m self-employed. “I can do what I want to do, “and it’s so much fun!” I started in banking and
finance in the corporate world. I said, this is not gonna work. A friend from college called me and said, “Hey, we’re starting a
new ecommerce company. “Would you like to join us?” I learned what Beer Fridays were. (glasses clink together) But we also learned what burn rate was. Burn rate meaning, one
million dollars per month going down the drain. After that, I tried to
go back into banking. That lasted six months. Another entrepreneur needed
help with sales and marketing. We tried out the part-time
thing for a few months but after that, we
decided to work together. My name is Kirt Moritz. I’m President and Co-Founder of Nayked Apparel. We started on Amazon in 2004. Three years ago we decided just to start focusing on apparel. We do not like alligators. We do not like horses. We do not like things on our items. So we focused on the word naked. Naked, meaning it’s not about
the garment you’re wearing but it’s really about you. I’m an adjunct professor. Kids come to my office
all the time asking, “Hey, I have this idea. “I have this vision, I have this product.” And I look them straight
in the eyes, and I say, “How many have you sold?” Taking that first step to just do it is the hardest step. But after that, you’ll never regret it. (gentle music)

  • I'm Amy Daniels: digital nomad, marketing specialist, and creative writer. A bit about me:

    • I studied English and composition in college. I'm a native English speaker with more than 5 years of professional writing experience.

    • I have worked as a writing tutor, research assistant, content writer, project manager, and marketing consultant.

    • I have more than 4 years of experience in all matters related to online marketing, including SEO web content, creative blog posts, digital advertisements, infographics, email marketing campaigns, eBooks, and video marketing.

    Here's why you should hire me:

    • Most of my Upwork clients have asked me to partner with them long-term. After I complete a small project for them, they almost always ask if they can re-hire me for ongoing work because my big-picture understanding of marketing proves to be an asset to them.

    • I can understand exactly what you're looking for with very little direction. I'm an intense listener. One of my top skills is figuring out what you/your brand is trying to say and delivering it in a way that feels like your own.

    • I have experience managing freelancers on Upwork. In my previous position as content manager, I regularly managed 8-10 freelancers through this platform. Most freelancers on here don't understand what you go through as a client. I do.

    • My background is in writing, but my abilities do not stop there. I'm extremely analytical, I have an eye for design, and I approach marketing with a strategic, creative perspective.

    No matter how big or small your project, I will help you clearly define your goals and make sure you reach them. And you're going to love the results
