Enjoy hearing Tanner's personal story. "I grew up with an insatiable desire to create and design. While I immersed myself heavily in the arts to feed this trait, the world pushed me towards science, technology, and engineering. I went to The University of Texas and obtained my degree in biomedical engineering, and from there I went on to product development engineering. . I wasn’t happy trying to pretend like I was something that I deep down wasn’t. I wanted to take the risk to abandon what I had been educated and trained for, to abandon a stable salary, to abandon the idea that my job title had to look a certain way to feel good about myself. all of this pushed me to create Outer Woods.
Outer Woods is a venture where I design beautiful and efficiently engineered pieces out of the world's most beautiful wood. I’m excited to grow this business organically with marketing, and data, and good relationships.
Life is short, and I truly believe that the regrets you will have years from now will be more on the things you didn’t do rather than the things that you did do. Take risks. Make mistakes. Live an interesting story. Outer Woods will strive to do this every day no matter where we go or what we end up doing. We feel that you should do the same in whatever capacity speaks to you.
