1. Start a medical app ($1.2M/year)

  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 10
  • Location: California, USA

I am an emergency medicine fourth year resident at the Harvard Teaching Hospital Affiliates Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospitals. Medicine has always been my love, and I am lucky to be able to practice it.

Conduct Science was born out of the evident need for cutting-edge research tools across the board. To achieve reliability across all research, the same standard of equipment should be used by every researcher.

Bootstrapping is a model which means that your company runs entirely on its own revenue. You grow with profits and revenue that your company generates, rather than inflate the value of the company with shareholders. Allowing revenue to drive the company means that you are really focused on the most important thing in business, which is your customer base.

2. Start a natural health product business ($900K/year)

Kel STUART from Remote started Sanuku APM over 4 years ago, a natural health product business.

  • Revenue: $75,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 2
  • Location: Remote

I worked a few different jobs after high school before deciding to tackle University in my early 20s. When I was one subject off finishing a Bachelor of Commerce degree (with a major in Accounting) I decided to venture to Japan – my neighbor and I planned for a 4-week summer vacation and both of us ended up staying almost 12 months. The working holiday visa program between Australia and Japan offers a fantastic opportunity for such experiences. There was something about the Japanese culture and structured manner of the society that really pulled my strings.

Be flexible and be open to the possibility (and real likelihood) you cannot get everything right all the time. Accept mistakes and move on.

I returned to Australia, completed my degree, and headed back to Japan the following year for a 6-year stay. During that time, I worked in a management position that I was fortunate enough to wrangle. That was an amazing period. I worked hard and taught myself Japanese to a reasonably proficient level. Most weekends during the winter season I went snowboarding, and every other weekend throughout the year, when there were waves, I went surfing.

3. Start a dermatology business ($12M/year)

Scott R. Melamed from Penfield, New York, USA started ProMD Health about 3 years ago, a dermatology business.

  • Revenue: $1,000,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 28
  • Location: Penfield, New York, USA

The concept for ProMD Health was initially created by my partner Dr. George Gavrila. Believe it or not, he began by treating toenail fungus using a single laser in a 1 room medical office. He was our first receptionist, medical assistant, and physician. He saved every penny he could from that to get trained in Botox and thus ProMD Health was born. We are now one of if not the largest purchasers of Botox and Dermal fillers in the Mid-Atlantic and one of the top practice groups in the country.

From day one he had the dream of building a company that brought the flourishing industry of Aesthetic Dermatology to more than just the elite while also finding a way to bring the power back to the physician so that they could own their own practice and share in his dream in light of heavy pressure to join ever growing HMOs or multi-physician owned large practice groups.

But he couldn’t do it alone, he recognized the need for a partner.
