6 years, 12 employees, and $1 mil revenue… the inspirational story of Popov Leather.
Imagine starting a business because you just wanted to make yourself the perfect wallet... and then looking back 6 years later to discover that you've got 12 employees, 2 children, and over a million dollars in revenue?
That's the position that my guest today - Ryan Popov - finds himself in - and as he stated himself in the podcast, he never dreamt he'd be where he is today when he was perfecting that wallet for himself 6 years ago.
His business has been incredibly successful in a relatively short timeframe, and in this episode he shares:
how (and why) his business has grown so quickly;
how he and his wife (who is equal partner) balance work and family;
the differences between selling on Etsy and on his own website;
how he and his wife took the leap from being employed to full-time self-employment;
the marketing strategies that have worked for him, and much more.
I had so much fun chatting to Ryan for this episode - he's clearly passionate about his craft, and about his business, and I hope you enjoy listening to his story as much as I did!
