I would love to do a shorty (non-scientific) study about big businesses that are primarily run by one person.
The goal would be an article, trying to see types of businesses, any similarities in founders, how they got started, etc. The conclusion should answer this question
"Is there a correlation to be found between founders/businesses or anything else?"
However, before that, I need to find these businesses which have been a struggle.
Here is the complete definition:
Must be in businesses for at least 5+ years (shows long-term potential vs. a fluke)
Yearly revenue range: $300,000 up to $600,000 (with some exceptions can be a little higher, but preferably no more than $1 million per year)
Must be "online businesses" - no physical presence needed
Preferably up to 5 employees either full-time or part-time (with some exceptions, can be up to 8-9 employees)
It would be great if the revenues would be somewhat publicly available to confirm that or the founder would be open to sharing this information with me.
Upfront costs/investment of the business cannot be more than $10,000
Do you know any businesses that fit these criteria?
It would be awesome if you could share the URL of the person/company!
