I like to know why he succeeds, while countless others sell candles, fail. I know execution, but any in detailed article of his process?
Yeah, and they look like proper budget candles as well that you see everywhere online

Good for him but he hasn’t made a million. He hopes to do a million in turnover this year. Big, BIG difference.

Kind of, also turnover aint profit.
That said, very nice setup and love his attitude.
Get this kid on the forum to make a thread and help :D

Not sure, although it's a great example of how execution trumps all. You can make millions of dollars selling rocks you find outside but not everyone is capable of doing that, mindset, beliefs execution & strategy.

Some more inspiration

How many people now would launch a product and just focus on FB ads? Or just think lets launch on Amazon and spend a ton of money on PPC like every other donkey? A few products were invented back when FB and IG didn't even exist, think outside the box!


Lots of people have million-dollar ideas, but people rarely act on them. Mistakes, too, can sometimes even mean millions — if the timing is right.
For entrepreneurs, one good idea can prove extraordinarily fruitful — even if it's as silly as something like the Snuggie. The Slinky, for example, was born after a naval engineer made a clumsy mistake; meanwhile, the infamous Furby was crafted after its creator was introduced to Tamagotchis, and felt an overwhelming urge to pet it.

I remember having a furby when I was a kid :clench:

The initial trick is to know the difference between sales volume and profits. Then the next trick is to create and sustain an income stream year after year. Followed by the maturity and character to manage the money that he makes. The race has hardly started...
He`s in a great position.
Hopefully he can keep his cool during his early twenties.
Young guys with money love to show off and spend spend spend.

Interesting to me is that he turned away from Etsy to Amazon Handmade. My wife's greeting card design biz on Etsy (inkdropdesign) fell off a cliff in recent years (around 2018). Perhaps Amazon could help get it going again.
Man I made a website for a guy who crafted homemade wooden smartphone speaker docks years and years ago, and urged him to apply and be one of the first people to list on Amazon Handmade when it opened up for applications bc all he sold on was Etsy and in person tradeshows. Couldve made a killing but he never did.
