About Taylor:

Taylor has been running his own businesses since he was a teenager, determined to find a career he actually enjoyed and was passionate about rather than taking the traditional 9-5 office job. From running a landscaping business in high school, and a painting contractor in college, to getting into real estate and managing a few rental properties. But his passion has always been in sports, and in 2018 he fell in love with the sport of roundnet (aka Spikeball) and realized this was his “way out.”

He started by organizing some of the largest roundnet tournaments in the world, making a name for himself in the niche sport of roundnet, and being one of the biggest influencers in this growing sport. But it didn’t take long before he got “bored” and needed something new, and he dove into an entirely new world of manufacturing and selling products under his new brand, Premier Spike. Until this point, all his endeavors had been fairly easy for him. There hadn’t been huge risks, and he was pretty capable of figuring things out as needed.

But Premier Spike has been his most challenging undertaking yet, forcing him to educate himself on topics he never imagined, dealing with a wide range of emotions as he competes with a massive company that has a monopoly on the market, defending himself in legal battles, and pushing himself through all the struggles knowing there’s no backing out after investing a large chunk of his family’s savings into this new venture.

Episode 90 of the Just Get Started Podcast features the Co-Founder and Chief Revenue Officer of CROSSNET, Chris Meade.

About Chris:

Chris Meade is the Co-founder of CROSSNET, the world’s first four-way volleyball game. Now sold on Target, Walmart, Amazon, and 20+ marketplaces CROSSNET is becoming a household name in the outdoor sporting goods market. In 2019, CROSSNET surpassed 2.25 million dollars in sales.

It’s not every day that a new sport is created – but that’s exactly what happened when three friends from a small town in Connecticut combined an old game called four square and volleyball. Growing up together in the “Quiet Corner” of CT, brothers Greg and Chris Meade constantly sought new sports and activities to keep them busy with their childhood friend Mike Delpapa.

One night in May 2017, Chris, now 26, got together with his brother, Greg, 25, and Mike, 25, got to reunite. Reminiscing on recess days playing four square, the three friends struck an idea for a four-way volleyball game that merged traditional volleyball with the four square. By dividing the court into four quadrants, rather than in half, they envisioned a new game that incorporated the nostalgic feel of recess. After creating a prototype, inviting their friends to come play and not being able to turn them away they knew we were onto something!

Since that moment over 2 years ago, the trio has made it their mission to spread the game of CROSSNET throughout the world.
