Paul Lindsoe, owner of Headwaters Seat Covers LLC, started his seat cover career in 1987 with Marathon Seat Covers.
Since 1987, Paul
has designed several hundred different models of truck & SUV seat covers and he's
installed several thousand sets of them, plus trained dozens of employees, including store managers.
He became a master designer/operator/mechanic of an Eastman M-9000 C&C cutting machine in his last seven years at Marathon.
In September, 2006, Paul drew a bighorn sheep tag in Montana, and being frustrated with being unable to buy Marathon when it came up for sale, he left Marathon and founded Headwaters Seat Covers, LLC, about a month before Marathon was sold to a fellow from Georgia.
How humble were the beginnings of Headwaters Seat
Paul started Headwaters with just $275 dollars on a zero percent interest credit card.
But what he
lacked in money, he
made up for in knowledge, experience, customer service and a drive to succeed.
Talk about the "American Dream.
We have come a long way with lots of help from others.
We've grown from our profits.
We've utilized the help available to small business dreamers like us which is available to the general public.

As you can see, Lori is never far from the action.
The two Lindsoe boys have been going hunting with Paul
since the age of three.
Here is Keagan, age seven at the time, with a cow elk Paul shot during the 2005 archery season.
At the time of the shot, he
was telling Paul
to not shoot the cow and wait for the bull.
Keagan was right.
The herd bull bugled for 2-3 minutes in front of Paul
and Keagan at 20 yards after he
had already shot the cow!
One of Paul's proudest hunting moments, his
2006 Montana Missouri River Breaks Bighorn Sheep.
It took five trips and 22 days of hunting to find this ram.
During that time, Paul
looked over some 150-175 rams before shooting this one.
The Ram scored 189-1/8 Boone and Crockett points and
was aged at 12.5 years old.
