I LAUNCHED MY COM­PANY WITH MIN­I­MAL CASH

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - WORK -

‘I wanted to sell T-shirts with mes­sages on them in bot­tles. I bought glass bot­tles from a cheap hard­ware store, bought 15 T-shirts, a heat press (sec­ond-hand) on­line and a vinyl cut­ter. I made a web­site for free on Big­car­tel.com. That was all I started with. I learnt from YouTube how to print and how to cut vinyl. Peo­ple started to or­der the shirts be­cause they en­joyed the mes­sages. It got to a point where I was stay­ing up all night to work on my shirts, on top of my full-time job. I gave my­self one year: if I saw prof‹it af­ter one year, I’d com­mit to this full time. And I did.’
