BACKGROUND STORY TO ANDY FRISELLA'S RISE
Andy Frisella who is world-renowned for his extraordinary entrepreneurial skills has a story that dates back to his childhood days. At an early age, he used to sell lemonades and baseball caps to his neighbors, door to door. When interviewed, he often says that entrepreneurship runs in his blood.
In his college days, that is his early 20’s, he experienced a life-changing experience, one that changed his perspective on life. When walking out one evening with his friend, he was stabbed in his face. This had him have to endure 160 stitches and lifetime nerve damage on his face. To date, he still cannot feel anything on his face. He literally saw death come his way and after the experience, despite being depressed for a while, he vowed to himself to be someone great, to chase his goals.
Over 20 years ago, he founded his first company, Supplement Stores which is a vitamins and supplements store. With only $12,000, he and his business partner, Chris Klein who is now the president and Chief Operating Officer( COO) of Supplement Superstores, could not even afford to do advertising. They rented a retail store, bought first products, and then embarked on their journey of direct-to-customer relationships.
Andy Frisella and Chris Klein daily went to people, marketing their brand, telling them what they offer and their benefits. They established a rapport with clients and made their brand home in people’s hearts; this was one of the main attributes of their success. The Word-Of-Mouth form of marketing, which is a powerful tool for business growth, saw them skyrocket. Supplements Store was the word in everybody’s mouth.
They gradually moved to the social media space, reaching out to clients and seeking feedback on their products. They knew the only way to grow was to focus less on the product and more on the customer hence understanding their needs and solving them. This saw Supplement Stores grow over years both in terms of followers and profits, up to date they annually generate revenue of more than $100 million. They did not give up on their vision even when it seemed vague having faced financial challenges.
