Introducing Matt White
It is always said that people should follow their passion when entering an entrepreneurial endeavor. Of course, there are limitless things that someone could have a passion for and often the passion may not be typical. Matt White is one of those people who took an unconventional passion and made a business out of it. Matt is the founder of Sussex Beard Oil, a product that was developed out of his own need to manage his own facial hair. He was having difficulty finding an all-natural product that didn’t result in dry skin or hair breaking. Without being able to find the product he wanted, Matt decided he would make his own and was happily surprised with the result. The oil eventually lead Matt to develop more products for the bearded person and now his items sell across Canada in stores, as well as internationally online.
Matt believes that everyone has a beard, but some only internally. Matt wanted his product to connect more deeply to its users. In order to make this connection, the company’s motto is that every beard has a chin, every chin is connected to a man, and that every man has his victories, troubles, and turmoil. Check out this week’s Boiling Point to get inspired to take your own unique idea to the next level.
