1. Start a journal business ($1.8M/year)

Ollie Aplin from London, UK started MindJournal over 5 years ago, a journal business.

  • Revenue: $150,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 3
  • Location: London, UK

I’ve personally kept a journal for 10 years now, ever since I first went into therapy to recover from PTSD. My mum took her own life 2 years prior to my breakdown, and I never really got to grips with my emotions or how to process everything that had ever happened.

When I started therapy I was still stuck in the mindset that talking about how I felt was not something I should do. So talking therapy was the most unnatural experience for me. So to help, my therapist recommended I tried journaling – as a way of privately thinking about how I felt and what was on my mind. It was a game-changer of a moment for me.

2. Start a sports coaching business ($57.1K/year)

Sarah Wolfer from MariΓ‘nskΓ© LΓ‘znΔ›, Northwest, Czech Republic started Girl Boss Sports almost 3 years ago, a sports coaching business.

  • Revenue: $4,759/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: MariΓ‘nskΓ© LΓ‘znΔ›, Northwest, Czech Republic

As an athlete and coach myself, I have experienced many situations that left me feeling dismayed at the state of affairs for women and girls involved in sports. I recall one such instance where I was playing at a very competitive level and the head coach screamed at me from 2 inches away with every expletive he could think of in front of our entire team because I asked him a question about the drill that was being done. I still vividly remember the spittle flying out of his mouth and hitting me in the face and not knowing what to do. The powerlessness I felt at that moment, coupled with the lack of appropriate response by the system when I reported him left me feeling hopeless for my future in sports. I ended up quitting soccer and refused to touch a ball for an entire year.

On the coaching side - as someone with 16 years of experience now, there are still instances in which I am treated differently than my male counterparts. One such example was when I was on the sideline waiting for the referee to come over and check my team prior to the start of the game. I was dressed in my coaching attire, had the whistle around my neck, the clipboard in my hand, and the player cards ready to be presented when the referee walked over to our sideline. He made eye contact with me and then proceeded to walk over the dad who happened to be on our side tying his daughter’s shoe and assumed that he was the coach.

Take time for yourself! Being an entrepreneur is hard work and you can’t do it to the best of your ability if you haven’t taken time for yourself to rest and rejuvenate. Self-care is integral to success.

3. Start a leather business ($12K/year)

Jacques Flynn from Kawartha Lakes, Ontario, Canada started JAQET over 9 years ago, a leather business.

  • Revenue: $1,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 2
  • Location: Kawartha Lakes, Ontario, Canada

I am a car designer by day (I still work full time as a car designer). I am always looking beyond the automotive design world to satisfy my creative needs.

Designing cars is a dream come true, but we are a large team and it is very much a team effort. I wanted to create something that I had 100% control over, and see where that might lead me.

I think it’s very important to first establish a very clear vision… What is it you want to accomplish? After that, it is very important that all efforts go to supporting that one vision.

And for some real world inspiration, give Stringtown Animal Hospital's story on creating Stringtown Animal Hospital a read:

I am Dr. Ellie Scott and I am passionate about keeping pets healthy and supporting pet parents. I purchased Stringtown Animal Hospital in 2004 to create a pet care facility that is exceptional at preventing and treating illness.

When I purchased the hospital there were 3 employees and 1 veterinarian, myself. We currently have 5 veterinarians and 23 employees. Our community, Grove City, is amazing. My entire team works tirelessly to accommodate the needs of our pet families and make every experience positive. This past year of COVID has been challenging for everyone. But my team has excelled. They embraced the changes of curbside care and keeping themselves healthy. They truly understand the importance of pets in the lives of our pet families. They go above and beyond, every day. There is no doubt they are heroes.
