Even though he had that entrepreneurial spark in him, he didn’t know where to start or fund a business. He always thought it needed a lot of money and skills.It took being laid off from the corporate job to figure out that he wanted to try something new. He sought advice from his brother in law who was a successful online entrepreneur, and that’s how he launched his t-shirt business.But it was not easy. At first, Kerry went from 0-30k in sales over the first three months only to go back to $6k in the fourth month.
