#173: James Harrisson & Sunny Gosal on being Type A in lockdown

By Jordan Michaelides

James Harrisson is the host of The James Harrisson Show, a podcast where he talks about all things self improvement and business. 

Sunny Gosal is the Author of Bushido Code, e-commerce entrepreneur, and apparently, our first international guest.

We had James on the show recently prior to the pandemic, and thought it’d be wise to bring his trusty friend Sunny along. Together they run a pants e-commerce store, Northbound Gear.

In this episode we covered:

  • Mindset on current events
  • The rise of e-commerce
  • Their e-commerce business
  • Changes to The James Harrisson Show
  • Bonsai & hobbies over lockdown
