Who We Are

A little about us:

Wi-Buy is composed of Josh Powers and Mike Rutledge. We met in high school with no clue that we would be one day starting an e-commerce business together. We parted ways in college where we went to different schools. Mike studied renewable energy in the mountains of NC, and Josh worked in different management positions while learning to run E-commerce businesses. Mike worked in solar and various industries while Josh began a family. We met back in recent years discussing various business ideas and agreeing that we wanted to run our own business one day free of the daily grind of a typical job.
Enter 2019, we got a plan together, formulated a business name and took that leap.
From the beginning, we agreed we did not want to run the typical E-commerce store placing sales above all else. We seek to educate as much as possible on the various options out there in self-sufficiency and sustainability.
We love what we do and we are just as passionate as you about the freedom that comes in being self-sufficient in whatever that means for your life. 
We seek to give you the resources you need to learn and be successful. We want to give back to our community and world.
Best Regards!
-Mike & Josh
