How This Retail CEO Raised $1,000,000 – In One Year

Do you have an amazing product… and dream of getting onto the shelves of big-name retailers across the entire country (or even globally)…

But have no clue how to get started, get recognized, and get your “in” with the industry?

This week on The Scale or Fail Show, we’re sharing an episode of Women Who Own It, another podcast that Allison Maslan hosts, in partnership with the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

In this popular episode, Allison interviews Bea Dixon, founder of The Honey Pot and master of all things retail, sales, and beyond.

In 2014, Bea launched The Honey Pot, a plant-based feminine hygiene line created with a goal to provide women with a healthy alternative to traditional feminine care, while working a full-time job. 6 years later, The Honey Pot Company’s products can be found online and in stores nationwide at Target, Walmart, Urban Outfitters, Walgreens, Bed Bath and Beyond, Whole Foods, and beyond.

Watch now to learn:

  • Bea’s incredible story of launching The Honey Pot and getting it on the shelves in the biggest retailers in the country, all starting with a dream (literally)
  • How The Honey Pot raised $1,000,000 in venture capital in one year
  • What Bea says you CANNOT grow a business without… and helped her get through her toughest times when people doubted her
  • Why Bea knew she wanted to sell her company from the beginning
  • Everything you need to know about getting your product into retail stores
  • 2 big mistakes new businesses make when trying to scale through retail
  • How to know when to take your “side hustle” to a full-time business
  • And much, much more!
