Have you heard about any eComm side-hustles growing to become a $2 Billion company? This might sound too good to be true, but it did happen when Spencer Jan jumped into entrepreneurship and started a business in his garage in 2010 with his brother and only $15,000 to his name.

Spencer has started numerous eCommerce ventures since but nothing surmounts to the wildly successful SoloStove that upended an entire industry and grew into SoloBrands where they eventually raised $219 million through an IPO giving the company a $2 Billion valuation!

Here to share that story today is the founder of SoloStove, Spencer Jan!
