In this episode, we talked with Maine entrepreneur and business owner Daniel Finnemore from Box Of Maine. We talked about how he started selling online, how he finds the unique Maine-made products that go into his boxes, how growing up the son of an entrepreneur inspired him, how he defines success, and more!
ABOUT OUR GUEST:
Daniel was born and raised in Bangor, where he graduated high school and attended the local community college for Business Management. His father was an entrepreneur and would take him on the job when he was younger. When Daniel got married to his wife, Sarah, he soon realized that he needed to make more money so he began selling on e-commerce platforms like Ebay and Amazon. A few years later, his business Box of Maine started in the basement. He now owns his own commercial property in Old Town, where his team packages and ships Maine products in customized gift boxes all over the world.
