Every new business starts with a dream. While some entrepreneurs fantasize about becoming the next Steve Jobs, others are content to imagine a steady income that pays the bills and offers the freedom of life without a boss. Finding the path to success isn’t always easy and requires the right combination of a great idea, a bit of business acumen, a sprinkling of creativity and hard work.
For those of you seeking a bit of inspiration to finally launch that idea you believe in, we’ve gathered a list of three small business owners who started small and made it big time. We may be biased, but we have to think that part of their success just might be due to their awesome free websites.
While some of her 13-year-old peers still had nannies of their own, go-getter Noa Mintz was busy founding her very own nanny business. Just two years after setting up her website which helps match nannies with just the right family, the now 15 year old has branched out and hired her a CEO to run daily operations. What sets Nannies by Noa apart from other childcare businesses is their thorough vetting process. According to their website, “each one of our sitters is carefully screened and vetted. Our acceptance rate remains low, ensuring you are matched only with quality, dedicated sitters and nannies.” The precocious teen has received no shortage of media coverage including articles in CNN Money and interviews on FOX, the Today Show and many others.
According to The New York Post, “in barely two years, Breads Bakery has evolved from a flour-and-water upstart to a leading player in Gotham’s ultra-competitive bakery scene.” The brainchild of Israeli chef Uri Scheft, Breads opened the doors to their Union Square bakery and cafe less than two years ago. Through the sheer power of their unbeatable pastries, irresistible babka and a wide selection of fresh-baked goodies, the bakery has quickly become a can’t-miss spot in New York’s famed foodie scene. The bakery is currently opening two new branches and has been featured in countless articles in Time Out NY, The New York Times, The Village Voice, The Daily News and more.
After undergoing six open heart surgeries before his 39th birthday, no one would have been surprised if Adrian Pace had decided to take a break from his successful career on Wall Street to spend some time relaxing, lying on the beach and reading books. Instead, the tireless entrepreneur spent his days in the hospital dreaming up the idea for Forte Gelato – an all natural, nutrition-packed and tasty alternative to mainstream ice creams. Filled with protein and low in fat, the ice cream is sold in stores around the United States.
