#1: David Mason, founder of Vape and Juice:

We chatted with with David, founder of Vape and Juice ($300K/month). In our interview, David says:

No sooner had I been handed the website log-in, did I realize I couldn’t advertise vape kits or e-liquids on Google and Facebook. Lesson 1 - do some prior research!

Additionally:

I’ve realized the importance of getting rid of bad apples, there are certain things you can’t live with for too long in your business without it destroying your hard work.

Further:

If what you are doing isn’t going to offer people something better than that which already exists, you’re just a ‘me-too’.

#2: Jeremy Ong, founder of Vape Club:

We chatted with with Jeremy, founder of Vape Club ($60K/month). In our interview, Jeremy says:

I had tiger parents who always asked me to study hard, get good grades, get a good job and retire at 60. I’ve always been skeptical about this as my dad was not particularly happy and he was always worried about money.

Additionally:

I didn’t have any working capital to buy inventory, so I employed the “sell first, worry later” concept. Not 100% ethical, but I had no choice - what better way to validate the idea other than actually selling it?

Further:

Know your weaknesses and don’t stinge to get help to shore up those weaknesses.
