And for some real world inspiration, give Agent Red's story on creating The Wine Spies a read:

My name is Red. Agent Red.

At least that’s solely how most people in the wine trade know me, even after 13 years of working together.

I founded The Wine Spies in 2007, to showcase and sell incredible wines - from hidden gem wineries and big-name wineries alike. We sell a different wine every 24 hours at winespies.com, and we only sell wines that we absolutely love. We go ‘above & beyond’ with customer service, and our loyal fans (we call our customers our ‘Operatives’) around the country have stayed with us for much longer than most customers stay with other wine companies.

And for some real world inspiration, give Belinda Kelly and Venise Cunningham's story on creating Simple Goodness Sisters a read:

Hi! We are the Simple Goodness Sisters, real-life sisters Belinda Kelly (4 years younger, the bartender) and Venise Cunningham (the older sister and the farmer.) We are a lifestyle beverage brand focused on bringing the world a Happier Hour, from garden to glass.

The first product we launched were our simple syrups. The syrups launched in three flavors in Fall 2018 (Rhubarb Vanilla Bean, Marionberry Mint, and Huckleberry Spruce Tip), followed by 3 additional flavors in Spring 2019 (Lemon Herb, Berry Sage, and Blueberry Lavender), and edible flower salts and sugars for rimming in Fall 2019. During that time we pushed our ability to grow, harvest, and package in a major way, growing at a rate of 4 times our original production, with quite a learning experience along the way. We both come from a technical background in corporate Seattle, so organic farming, food production, and entrepreneurship are all areas we’re learning by doing, and Google!
