Everything we really need
YouSpots is run by Skaters for Skaters, by Longboarders for Longboarders, by Snowboarders for Snowboarders and by Freeborders for Freeborders. We have built this project out of love and enthusiasm and the appreciation and thanks we get from our followers and users is worth more than anything. Yet there is ample opportunity to make this project financially viable.
The vision that we share for YouSpots never fails to to excite people when we talk about it and we seem to have discovered a market niche with incredible potential for the future growth of action sports industries. We would like to grow and expand, make this service better for us and our users and we would like to tell every single soul on this planet to get involved in order to unleash the full potential of what we have built. We rely on the support, enthusiasm and participation of our team, the people that help us out and the whole world of action sports so everybody can get the most out YouSpots. However, to realize this potential, we will need either money or lots of people working for the love of it. We registered as a company to be able to create a regular income and pay people for the time they invest in the near future.
YouSpots is not your usual company. It is a project driven by love, friendship and intrinsic motivation. Nobody has yet seen any money and we have been happy to work knowing that we do the right thing and a simple "Good job guys, this is f***ing amazing!". The connections and friendships we formed along the way, the experience we gained that went into our CVs and couches to crash on in pretty much every country we travel to motivate us to go on. The plan is to pay people once we get the opportunity to do so. Concrete plans are being realized as you read this and we think it's just a matter of a few months until money is flowing and we can make a dream come reality: Getting paid for something we love doing.
Become part of the team - no matter where in the world you are!
