With no previous experience in the beauty industry, Dylan Mullan and one of his closest mates & former business partner saw potential and knew that there was a huge gap in the market, and that they had the next big product that could fill it.
For nine long months any spare moment was filled with extensive research, product development and developing what became Happy Skin Co.
How did they get started?
They started with an investment of only $20 000 the company accelerated forward and has skyrocketed past the $12 million mark.
Dylan Mullan says “Find us on Instagram– it’s where all the magic happens”
When I asked Dylan about his 3 characteristics that make him successful he spoke about his work ethic, his belief in himself and his ability to take risks. 2 weeks into the business starting out he knew he needed to quit his job. He says: “The risk was staying in a full time job in a place where I wasn’t happy” so he took the leap of faith when he knew the business was taking off.
Dylan also says “If you believe in yourself and you are prepared to work hard you’d be surprised how life starts figuring itself out for you. You truly can make your dreams come true if you are prepared to work for it … and the thing is it gets easier to believe when things start happening. I wish I’d realised this a year ago”
