Travis S. Weaver

(THE MAN BEHIND MANREADY)

Founder Travis S. Weaver, originally from Zephyr, a small town in west Texas, is the perfect example that the American dream still exists. He played 6-man football, chopped firewood, worked cattle, was a welder, hauled hay, and even worked on a turkey farm. “If you wanted a vehicle and school clothes, this is what you had to do. I'm proof that if you’re willing to make sacrifices, work hard, and pay your dues, you can make it in this world...on your own...no handouts.”

After leaving Zephyr, Travis pursued a degree in Advertising, spent time traveling, and even lived with a family in Mexico where he learned to tool leather. “I see something and I get fixated. I start envisioning ways to make things better or more marketable.” Many of Manready’s products are preexisting, but marketed to women. “We twist them, we turn them, and we make them, well, Manready.”

This journey to live the American dream is only starting. Even though the company is growing into a national brand, Manready will always support small town businesses and the community. Travis never wants to lose sight of where he came from and what made him the honest hard-worker he is today.

Start from nothing. Create something with purpose. Fight your way through it all. Stay true and earn your stripes.
