Finally, it happened

Yesterday was my birthday...a bit of a

milestone. Creating a magazine for men was not an

overnight whim. The idea started many years ago -- almost another life ago. I was co-owner of a woman’s magazine. I used to get teased by my friends that I was making girly mags, and when was I going to do a man’s magazine? Soon, I would say, as soon as I get my

business to the point where I have the time to take on another project. That time never came. My business is

diverse. I am a publisher. I do lots of direct mail. I consult. I create and implement media plans. I co-own and help manage a renovation

magazine; and along the way, I became a mortgage agent. In other words, why am I creating a men’s magazine? Refer back to line one… a birthday. The easy part was coming up with editorial

ideas. It was as simple as thinking about what my friends would want to read about...cars, trucks, food, drink, fishing, hunting, golf: stories that are part of our daily vocabulary. The hard part was selling a concept that

didn’t yet exist to advertisers. I heard a lot of: “YOU’RE DOING A WHAT???” Fortunately, there were enough business owners (men and women) who understood the concept and committed to supporting the mag. As you read through this premiere edition

of Bounder, I hope you feel that I have created a product that you, as a guy, can look at as a magazine for you. I am completely open to feedback… positive or negative. This will help me continue to grow Bounder. Now back to line one. Yesterday was my

birthday. I have a great woman in my life. I quit smoking. I’m trying to eat better, drink less. I traded in the Cadillac last year for a half ton. I bought my first bike in 35 years (a 900 Vulcan). And I finally published a men’s magazine. Yesterday I turned 55.

Special thanks to our Editorial Advisory Board. Their input was invaluable.
