With no previous experience in the beauty industry, Dylan and one of his closest mates & former business partner saw potential and knew that there was a huge gap in the market, and that they had the next big product that could fill it.

For nine long months any spare moment was filled with extensive research, product development and developing what became Happy Skin Co.

They started with an investment of only $20 000 the company accelerated forward and skyrocketed past the $12 million mark. 

Dylan says "Find us on Instagram - it's where all the magic happens"

He says: "The risk is staying in a place where I wasn't happy in a full time job" so he took the leap of faith when he knew the business was taking off.

Dylan also says "If you believe in yourself and you are prepared to work hard you'd be surprised how life starts figuring itself out for you. You truly can make your dreams come true if you are prepared to work for it ... and the thing is it gets easier to believe when things start happening. I wish I'd realised this a year ago"

It's a terrific interview and I'd love to hear your thoughts. Please leave a review or email me ingrid@healthynumbers.com.au
