Starting a business or launching a new product has never been easier. Getting people to buy your product, on the other hand, isn’t always a walk in the park.

“You can always make more money, you can’t make more time.” – Minna Khounlo-Sithep

Every single day, more and more brands pump new products into the market. It is truly saturated, which is why very few startups make it longer than a couple of years before they have to close shop.

However, not every new product is a fail. Some make a killing, and that is thanks to a few things: A good marketing strategy, a great product, the right expertise, and some support along the way.

To talk about this, I invited the brilliant minds behind The Product Boss, the amazing Minna Khounlo-Sithep and Jacqueline Snyder.

Both first-generation Americans and both entrepreneurs at heart, Minna and Jacqueline are two amazing women who came up with one genius idea: To start a company that helps other people take their product-based businesses to the next level!

They created The Product Boss out of their own struggles of trying to reach product-based dreams and goals, but feeling lost in a world of service-based advice and strategy.

If you own a product-based business, then you know exactly what struggles they mean.

Listen in as Minna, Jacqueline, and I discuss everything you need to know to take your product-based business to the next level.

“During me launching over a thousand fashion brands for my clients, designing, developing, producing, and helping them from scratch, I had decided to start my own two [product] lines, one was an apparel company and one was an accessories company.” – Jacqueline Snyder

“I always say that we’re very lucky that we ended up having the same values, because we kind of landed upon this business.” –  Minna Khounlo-Sithep

“Product business, in my opinion, is the loneliest. It requires a community around you, because it’s really hard to get that encouragement to reinvest again and again and again.” – Minna Khounlo-Sithep

“What got us here is going to be different than what gets us to a $10 million plus business.” – Jacqueline Snyder

“You can always make more money, you can’t make more time.” – Minna Khounlo-Sithep

Do you remember the last time your life took a total 180?  Perhaps it was the time you moved to a brand new home (or city), welcomed a new family member, or quit your full-time job to finally pursue your true passion. Or maybe it was a more sudden, shocking, or sad type of change, […]
