Product Journeys: Earth Class Mail & Flikshop UPDATES!

Season 9 of Rocketship.fm featured a lot of great stories, however, two stood out to us and we wanted to put together a follow up to find out what has happened since we first aired. Earth Class Mail, the early 2000’s startup that was featured on it’s own reality TV show, staring Ron Weiner which has now been twice sold, has now found a new home and clear direction. We hear from Casey Shaeffer about what has been happening at the company since 2017.

Plus, we sit down with Marcus Bullock of Flikshop, the founder who went to prison for eight years as a minor and now runs a successful company making it easier for families and loved ones to stay in touch with inmates. 

If you missed the original stories, make sure to check out the full episodes on Earth Class Mail and Flikshop.
