Community Highlights: Meet Greg Meade of CROSSNET

Today we’d like to introduce you to Greg Meade.

Hi Greg, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I started my journey by buying and selling ads and social media accounts across Twitter and Instagram. Eventually created e-com companies, one of the most recognizable ones being GLUNT. These businesses built my resume up with experience and knowledge that was able to help me lead and create CROSSNET.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Definitely not a smooth road. Probably one of the rockiest roads one could have. Days and nights of grinding in my mom’s basement, garage, and living room with no money. Literally destroyed her house by stockpiling inventory and using it as our office/warehouse. I remember living off Wendy’s with change from my car’s cupholder throughout college. Good times…

Trying to find out how to get traffic, how to convert, how much to pay per 1000 visitors were all challenges in the beginning that we needed to challenge ourselves from a bootstrapped level. All while trying to survive ourselves without having a day job.

We’ve been impressed with CROSSNET LLC, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
CROSSNET is the world’s first four square volleyball sport. CROSSNET was no overnight success, it took a year to create a prototype and then a year or so to start generating real cash flow for the business. No mommy or daddy money and no exterior money came in to help us. My specialty is marketing and brand awareness, all while having a leadership ability to make sure our employees are all working for the same goals and love what they do. I believe our business is different than others because we avoid that corporate feel and let our employees be independent, creative and have that freedom as if it was their own. Our culture is amazing and is something I am super proud to own. Regardless of the products we create or the money that is earned, I want to make sure everyone on our team wakes up and doesn’t have the mentality of “Oh, I have to work today.” I’ve seen that first hand from friends and family and never want to have a business like that. CROSSNET is turning into a dominant sporting goods company that will soon slowly turn into an innovative sporting goods powerhouse.

Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
Simple. Seeing my friends and family happy.
