We had the good fortune of connecting with Steve Wyland and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Steve, what is the most important factor behind your success?
I believe my strengths are recognizing a need and creating a plan to solve that need which has led to our success. In this case it’s our mobile axe throwing trailer that we bring right to you. This pivot also has to do with state restrictions due to Covid, but also the ability to host axe throwing at different venues in and around San Diego. Axe throwing can be done inside our warehouse in Mission Valley but also outside in our mobile unit. We have worked weddings, birthdays, company outings and customer appreciation events, chiropractor conferences, golf events, new car release parties, and other private events held at private residences. Battle Axe Mobile has traveled from San Diego to LA and out to Palm Springs for events and we’re just getting started. We are in talks with folks to run their own Battle Axe Mobile trailer and are focusing more on mobile entertainment then the brick and mortar location at this time due to Covid. If you would like to run your own Battle Axe Mobile territory then give me a call.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
What sets us apart from others is that we offer axes and tomahawks to throw. The axes and tomahawks are also different sizes and weights. We do this because a 20 year old will probably throw a different axe then a 70 year old and we want everyone to feel comfortable and confident when throwing. We do teach each and every group how to throw with two techniques as well. The techniques are 2 handed and then 1 handed. Axes are mostly used for two handed throwing while tomahawks are used for 1 hand throwing.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take them for a hike up Cowles Mountain then hit the beach for the day. Another day we would throw axes at Battle Axe San Diego, then grab a burger from Rockies and go to Kate Sessions Park so they can see the best view in San Diego.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would say the public. Every time we have our mobile unit at an event we hear “great idea” or we book another event while at our current event. It’s as simple as listen to your audience and give the public what they want.
