  • why Uskees moved from selling other firms' clothes to launching their own clothing range
  • the principles of sustainability in Uskees' clothing, including materials, packaging, avoiding plastics, repair kits and more
  • mistakes he's made when working with SEO and PPC partners – and how he now chooses and works with people to get results and share the rewards
  • why he chose Shopify as the platform for online sales
  • the life and business-changing impacts of two books he recommends, 'Why We Sleep' by Matthew Walker and 'Factfulness' by Hans Rosling, Ola Rosling and Anna Rosling Rönnlund
