Case Study

Hi, my name is Jeff Phillips and I am the inventor of the Beardo beard hat. We started out with one product which is our patented hat with a detachable beard (the Beardo), but have since launched hundreds of unique products and have even moved into branded promotional products.

I really just trusted my gut and went for it. I am glad I did because within the first 25 days of launch we had sold out of our entire years stock of 1,000 units, and pulled in over $40,000.

2. Bravery Co ($36K/year)

Emily Somers (from Melbourne VIC, Australia) started Bravery Co about 6 years ago.

Revenue
$3K / month
Team
1 founders / 1 employees

Case Study

Hi! I’m Emily, and I founded Bravery Co. in 2016. Bravery Co. is a company and community that supports chicks with cancer. We create Australia’s only range of designer headwear for cancer warriors with $2 from each scarf donated to cancer research to end this stupid disease.

On average, we make 3-5K profit a month, but this is always put back into the business. (Definitely no superyacht story here yet!)
