Who are you?
With thebaldfatguy.com I review razors and shaving products from lesser famous brands. I have discussed some more prominent brands, but generally I prefer start-ups and lesser knowns.
Why Did you start your business?
Side project mainly. The main problem I wanted to solve was that of my wallet. Being a head shaver, I found that blades and creams were costing more per month than when I just kept what hair I had left and got it cut.
What makes your business unique?
I only review products that I have been given. I do not purchase every product available just to do a review of it.
What's the biggest mistake you've made with your business and what did you learn from it??
I started making video reviews at the beginning. I honestly say I do not have the talents or time to do them consistently. I would love to do video reviews for all of the products I try, but it is not always feasible.
what big goal do you have for your company and how do you plan to achieve it?
Current goal: Have all of my shaving products supplied to me for 2015, and to be able to bring attention to the company via my blog and other social media efforts. I would also love to build a community of other head shavers to discuss things like how to's etc.
I plan to keep on doing as I do, celebrating the companies who provide the products, having give-a-ways, and basically having fun.
I would love to learn how to be more assertive in contacting the right people to gain the products for myself and my followers.
what advice or tips do you have for people wanting to start their own business or follow their dreams?
If you are not 100% secure with what you are doing or want to do, do not do it. You have to be able to talk about it to anyone and everyone, not just a few people here and there.
You are your brand, and it is you, you cannot just turn it on and off when it suits you.
Do what you love. If not, do not do it.
