From Little Things, Big Things Grow!

Working in a job 9-5 Monday to Friday, every week, every year is not for everyone. Some people dream big. Some people follow their ideas and take a risk. A “side hustle” can turn into a really lucrative business. The risk of following your dream is only a risk when you invest big at the beginning before you have built your client base.
One way to minimise the risk when starting your business is to start small and build your client base over time. Reducing costs is also a key ingredient. There are 3 basic steps to consider when starting up a small business.

  1. Idea.
  2. Start small
  3. Work it

A great example of success is a company that has grown from a small Storage unit at Kennards Self Storage is Beer Cartel.

“Brewing a fortune! How best mates who were determined to bring  an end to Australia's lack of 'decent beer' built a multi-million dollar  empire from a cramped storage shed.”
“A pair of best friends who started their humble business in a tiny Kennards storage shed have built a multi-million dollar beer empire. Geoff Huens, 41, and Richard Kelsey, 39, were working together in corporate jobs in market research when they saw an opening after they struggled to find a decent beer in Australia. Operating out of a self storage unit, the pair started online store Beer Cartel in 2009 providing drinkers access to exclusive craft beers from all over the world.” 

  • The duo made $4.1 million in revenue following a huge spike in sales during covid
  • Beer Cartel has been selling beers online longer than Dan Murphy's
