I get suggestions about people to interview on a fairly regular basis and I often find that the person just isn’t a fit.

So when a PR rep reached out to me and suggested today’s guests for the show I was skeptical. But I’m so glad I met these young ladies.

Isabel and Caroline Bercaw are the sisterpreneurs behind DaBomb bath fizzers.

The two young inventors got their start in 2012 when they were 10 and 11 respectively.

They liked using bath bombs but weren’t crazy about how the bombs sometimes left their skin or the tub feel so they created their own.

They started giving them as gifts and discovered the bombs were so popular they started selling them. The rest as they say is history.

Today they’re the faces of a multi-million dollar family business that employs their parents and about 150 people in their community.

The girls are actively involved in marketing and running the company and in this interview we discuss the challenges of running a growing company while you’re not old enough to sign a contract.

Trust me, these girls have big lessons for all of us and the episode is full of insightful nuggets these teens share.

So listen in as we discuss:

  • How they grew their business from idea to initial 25$ investment to millions of dollars in revenue
  • Their approach to differentiating their product – this surprised me and it might surprise you
  • The challenges of running a family business and how they manage to get some down time
  • The power of and importance of branding especially in a crowded market
  • And what surprised them about running a business that might seem like a negative but they ended up seeing as a positive.

As always listen all the way to the end where I’ll share your cocktail exercise and action step for this episode.
