Case Study

I always wanted to work for myself. So I was always thinking about business ideas. Not everyone wants to work for themselves and not everyone is suited to the lifestyle, so if you have the dream, make sure you pursue it!

My business started when I was working as a cook at a local reception venue. A bride wanted some local honey wedding favors, which I provided. Doing this made me find a jar supplier, register my home kitchen as a food premise, prepare an invoice, etc.

From here, I began selling honey to the public and then I experimented with other ideas (making jam, personalized wedding favors, etc) before going into skincare. I had quite a few failures in this period!

2. ($300K/year)

Yanet Caliz from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, USA started Gold Spectrum over 2 years ago, a business.

  • Revenue: $25,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 5
  • Location: Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, USA

Case Study

At a very young age, I realize my mom had to work three jobs to barely make a living for me and my brother. Since then, I decided I was going to be my own boss and I started my very first company at age 28. I started doing janitorial services using only the cleaning products I had under my sink. That put me on the path with the person who gave me my next opportunity to start another business. This business was repairing apartments. This was a skill I did not know but I learned to do well quickly. This is the foundation that taught me that I can learn and do anything to accomplish my goals.

Life has shown me that you can start right where you are and with what you have, with no money or support. You can always do it if you have the courage.

Many years ago, after my husband was diagnosed with cancer, a passion ignited in me for natural ways of healing our bodies. I discovered that humans have an endocannabinoid system (ECS), a group of receptors in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems. CBD interacts with CB1 and CB2 receptors that strengthen the immune system naturally. Quality CBD is an extremely effective natural alternative to align your health.

I’m Marge Clark, and I started Nature’s Gift Aromatherapy back in the early ’90s, rather by accident. A hobby developed into a passion and somehow became a business.

In the past I had considered retiring and just “divesting myself of the assets”, but then we will get emails from clients saying how this product eased a stubborn case of shingles, or that product helped with someone’s PTSD, and how can I just walk away? Some of our clients have been with us for over 25 years. They trust us and count on us. You can not put a price tag on that kind of loyalty.

Our goal was to create a place for customers to not only come and receive a “service” but enjoy an “unforgettable experience.” To that end, we focused all of our efforts.
