Beau Crabill is one of the most successful members of the eCommerce marketplace. At only 19 years old he became the youngest person in ClickFunnel’s history to have reached the “Two Comma Club,” and it all started with socks.
When Crabill was just 12 years old he identified an opportunity that even Nike didn’t. This was shortly after Nike released their “Elite” sock line. They were initially very successful but only came in two different patterns, black with a white stripe, and white with a black stripe.
Despite being relatively bland, they were in high demand. Beau noticed that all of his friends at school loved the socks, and this game him a brilliant idea. He went to JOANN Fabrics and bought several different colors of dye and started dying the Nike socks different colors. He brought them to school and started selling them for $25 a pair, over double what Nike was charging for their black and white ones. After a while, his business exploded far passed what he ever imagined. He was eventually making $1200 per month until his school principal told him to stop selling on school grounds. This is when Beau turned to eBay.
He continued selling socks but also diversified his business and grew even more. He accepted a scholarship to Pepperdine but dropped out soon after because his business was requiring too much attention.
After he got home, he was able to channel all of his energy into growing his business even more. Just seven months after, he became the youngest member of the “Two Comma Club.”
He has since developed a course to help show other’s his process that has helped him become so successful in the eCommerce marketplace. He is currently focused on overtaking GameStop in the video game space. He also wants to become the go-to leader for the education business.
Crabill has always set lofty goals. He prefers to challenge himself and push new boundaries as opposed to playing things safely.
“That’s when I’m in my flow and that’s what really drives me,” he said.
Crabill’s business has an incredibly unique origin story and he has used his strong work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit to grow it to heights he never imagined as a kid selling socks to his friends at school.
You’re never too young to start your own business, and although yours might not take off like Beau Crabill’s, he believes that prioritizing your life at an early age will do wonders for your future career.
