December 5, 2017

This is episode #53. And today’s guest is the Co-founder and CEO of MVMT pronounced as ‘movement’. MVMT are a global – fashion, watches and accessory brand for millennials, that has sold over 1.5 million products. 


After almost failing out of high school and dropping out of college, our guest started this brand at age 22 while he was $20,000 in debt. Four years later, his brand has grown to more than $80 million in revenue and 4 million social followers.


Some of the topics we spoke about include:

  • His first t-shirt business while still in school and his action steps getting that off the ground
  • Then, his rise and fall in selling rave lighting and accessories
  • His advice for growing a business from $0 to $1 million within 12 months
  • And how MVMT watches all started.


So If you’re someone that’s interested in designing a product and designing a thriving business around it, then this episode is for you.

I present to you … the resourceful, determined and inspiring ... Jake Kassan!
