business success story

A little while ago I created my very first physical product. To be more precise, the product was created by my girlfriend and I. It all started when I needed a very specific product for myself and I couldn’t find exactly what I needed so we decided to make our own. Eventually it hit us: If I likes this product there might be others who want it. Why not try selling it online?

Fast forward to today and out product is now being sold at Urban Outfitters. We made a very reasonable amount of money, especially considering the fact that we haven’t really put in any time into this. Most importantly, we have acquired a lot of new knowledge and experience and this is priceless.
