I soon started selling guitar parts on eBay as a hobby. That later became my entire income source as this weird niche hobby developed into a full-time business. In 2012 I switched gears completely and started the business that would eventually become Monster Bolts from the spare space in my garage”. Now, he has a global digital fastener company that sells bolts, nuts, and screws that is now expanding into a profitable, budding venture. Jeff has fought through adversities, as all new ventures do with maintaining revenue, cutting losses, and staying under budget.
