1. Start a nutrition supplements business ($960K/year)

Ricky Hall from St. Louis, MO started NutritionHQ. over 6 years ago, a nutrition supplements business.

  • Revenue: $80,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 0
  • Location: St. Louis, MO

I have been very passionate about nutrition and supplements since the early ’90s while serving in the Air Force. I remember seeing a picture of myself and how overweight I had unconsciously become. After seeing that picture I purchased a book about nutrition and supplements within six months I had lost over 50 pounds. I was hooked on helping people lose weight, gaining muscle, and live healthier lives. I started training and writing diet plans for friends and family members and realized this was my true passion.

After leaving the Air Force in 1995, I moved to New Jersey and worked at a gym selling memberships and personal training. In 1998 I moved back to Missouri to be closer to my son and start my first nutrition store. I scraped together everything I had saved working a construction job and begged my Mom and Dad to cosign a loan to open my first franchise store in February of 2000.

In 2009 I felt like I couldn’t take care of my customer and I was forced to sell products that I did not believe in. I sold my four stores in 2010 in hope of finding a franchise concept that cared about the customer as much as I did. I worked as a consultant for a few months with a new franchise concept. In 2011 I bought into the new franchise concept to finally change the way people thought about Nutrition stores. Quickly I learned the franchise was not the answer and I was growing more and more frustrated every day. I wanted to provide the best products for my customers and my hands were tied.

2. Start a fertility business ($0/year)

Alastair Kennett from London, England, United Kingdom started Optimale about 4 years ago, a fertility business.

  • Revenue: $0/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 6
  • Location: London, England, United Kingdom

When I was around 27 years old I started to notice that I was tired all day, I lacked motivation, my libido was dropping and I was moody and grumpy for no reason. This was very unlike me. After speaking to my brother we realised that he had been suffering from the same issues. He’d been to see life-coaches, psychologists and tried various health and lifestyle changes with no effect.

I had some blood tests done and realised I was suffering from low testosterone. Shortly afterward both my brother and I were on treatment and realised how life-changing testosterone replacement could be in all aspects of our lives. We saw that this area was poorly provisioned and services were really lacking compared to the US, where it is a more widely recognised treatment.

This inspired us to start up OptiMale, and what followed was one of the most frustrating, interesting, tough, and yet ultimately rewarding experiences. It was made all the more satisfying that we managed to succeed together as brothers and has really strengthened our relationship. It is a great feeling to be helping many men to realise their worth and potential, changing their lives and creating a successful business all at the same time!

3. Start a doula service ($2.28K/year)

Jessica Glendinning from Elgin started Your Virtual Doula over 2 years ago, a doula service.

  • Revenue: $190/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: Elgin

I am a CAPPA trained Doula and I work in Labor and Delivery at a hospital in South Carolina. I put aside my Marketing and Human Resource Management degrees from USC to become a Doula after the birth of my first child in 2013.

I found the subject matter of pregnancy and birth fascinating and loved the doula I had in my birth. I knew this was my calling and immediately jumped into the role. I had to temporarily step away from my hospital position during my twin pregnancy in 2018.

4. Start a photography business ($1.32M/year)

Kyle Nelson from Chico, California, USA started Results Imagery over 4 years ago, a photography business.

  • Revenue: $110,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 8
  • Location: Chico, California, USA

We both had previous experience in another start-up called Soul id which was a social media platform for action sports. We ran the marketing and media at that company which was a blast. After we left that company, we split directions. Eli got involved in the eCommerce industry by starting a brand called Winterial which he grew to hundreds of SKUs. Kyle headed in the media direction and started a commercial photography company where he worked with Fortune 500 companies and small businesses.

At this time Kyle wanted to be able to get back in the start-up world, grow a large brand and a team of like-minded creatives and innovators. So like any entrepreneur, he jumped on Google and started to search for media companies that were also technology-based companies as well. That is where the inspiration of starting a digital agency that solely focused on the media portion for brands and product companies came to life.

Culture is the centerpiece of a successful company. Creating a place for employees to come to work and enjoy what they do, the environment and who they work with will pay long term dividends.

5. Start a health and wellness coaching business ($180K/year)

Brittney Oliver from started Holistic Wellness Coaching Academy over 4 years ago, a health and wellness coaching business.

  • Revenue: $15,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 3
  • Location:

As an overweight child with debilitating anxiety, I had spent years trying to diet for weight loss while juggling bouts of panic and depression. Even after I had hacked the weight and improved my nutrition, I still just couldn’t get to the bottom of my mental health struggles. After my second miscarriage, I finally discovered the root of what I had assumed were hormonal issues were actually originating from an imbalance in my gut.

Get an early morning routine. This will give you precious hours to which YOU control your day and execute your dreams.

Once I learned about the mind-gut connection I was hooked! My evolving passion for wellness grew into an intense need to share my epiphany with the world. At that point, I became a board-certified health and life coach and started writing my first book Buddha Belly out of the driver's seat of my car during my baby’s naps. I had just sold my previous brick and mortar business to buy myself a year of working, to stay home with my second child. I was becoming antsy, needing to find a place for my passion to ignite again and once I started writing, the book flew together and was completed within six months.
