Our Guest

Greg and his wife Kim have been operating Magpie Clothing Exchange as a storefront in Palmer Alaska, and online worldwide since 2014.

Their goal is to transition into full time entrepreneurship with an emphasis on eCommerce.

There are no failures, just opportunities to learn and grow.

Greg is lifelong entrepreneur with a small 25 year break between projects, and lead vocalist of Alaska’s most middle aged punk band.

Note About Surge:

​“I listened to the first chapter of Surge and it immediately resonated with me. That kind of positioning is EXACTLY what we have in mind for our niche. Maybe we are a little early to the concept. We are NOT going to be doing this as a hobby….work, work, work for little financial reward. Navigating near term challenges of getting traction for the physical store is challenging, while also trying to a drive website traffic to a very small niche for long term “surge potential” can be quite a juggling act, especially with cash flow problems. Oh yeah, I want to quit my job too!”
