Young entrepreneur Mick Spencer has built ‘On The Go Custom Apparel’ in to a multi-million dollar global powerhouse | #436

Sir Richard Branson said, “Mick Spencer was a future business leader to watch”. Why? Because by the ripe old age of 27 years old, Mick Spencer had become a globally recognised CEO, a multi-millionaire entrepreneur, and an investor. Mick is the Founder and CEO of On The Go, a multi-million-dollar, global e-commerce company that enables users to design and manufacture their apparel and accessories. I think you’re going to love this chat. Mick is on a mission to disrupt the world of sporting apparel, he’s built some incredible partnerships with the likes Wesfarmers (one of Australia’s biggest publicly listed companies), our PM was visiting him the day after this interview and his book launched a few days later.

PM Sco Mo visits On-The-Go


On-The-Go’s Mick Spencer also shares:

  • How he got his first customer
  • Why partnerships are critical to a business’s success
  • How he maintains work/life balance
  • The best marketing he implements to get more customers
  • Why he loves Google Trends
  • And much, much more


Here’s what caught my attention from my chat with Mick Spencer:

  1. Mick’s overall drive and enthusiasm.
  2. I love Mick’s philosophy around creating 7-12 touch points before a prospect becomes a customer … and he even takes that one step further by having created a poster that details these touch points, posted all over the office. What a great reminder.
  3. Mick mentioned that he has someone within the business constantly following Google Trends.  This is a great way to keep on top of what’s happening in your industry … plus it’s also a great way to get ideas for fresh, timely content.
