In this weeks episode I was able to speak to Beav Brodie the founder & CEO of Tactical baby gear. Back in 2013 Beav found a giant hole in the market which would go on to create financial freedom and an 8 figure annual business.
His wife had given birth to his second daughter, and as a guy covered in tattoos who created custom cars he wanted something masculine as almost all diaper bags were created to look like purses. When he didn’t find anything online he decided to create something for himself. It didn’t start out to be a business it was something that he needed for himself and like many great businesses it grew organically and eventually would be doing well over 10 million dollars a year.
In this episode Beav talks about the struggles of building a multi million dollar apparel business, dealing with prototypes that cost 10s of thousands and dealing with manufacturing in other countries. He also talked about partnerships and what its like to stay motivated once he has found success.
