7. Start a kayak store ($1.2M/year)

Hamish from Sydney, New South Wales, Australia started Bay Sports over 8 years ago, a kayak store.

  • Revenue: $100,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

It all started with a tandem kayak back in 2012. We were the horse races with our family, talking about a guy up in the mountains was flogging off kayaks dirt cheap out of a warehouse.

My business partner bought a kayak from him at half the price the identical item was in a big retail shop. Living on the beaches in Sydney, I'd see people every day kayaking around the harbour - and lots of them. Seeing the opportunity, and our idea to run the whole business online, removing many of the overhead costs associated with a traditional (old school) retail storefront, the business that is Bay Sports (formerly Bay Kayaks) was born.

I've heard some bloody great ideas come out from the mouths of people I know, but they just never got around to starting. So if you know you've got a idea, opportunity, connection that you can turn into a profitable business, just start.
