Episode 029 - Anthony Coombs - Splendies - Lessons Learnt From One Of The First Subscription Box Companies
Jun 10, 2020 Episode 29

On this episode, I have the pleasure of talking with Anthony Coombs of Splendies.  Splendies is a ​​subscription box company that surprise you with​ ​three​ ​pairs​ ​of​ ​quality​ ​undies delivered​ ​to​ ​your​ ​door every month!

Splendies has been ranked in the top 10 for women’s subscription boxes for underwear in both Urban Tastebud and My Subscription Addiction.  They've also been featured in The Curvy Fashionista, NBC News and WellandGood.com, amongst others.

Anthony started Splendies in 2013, with it originally being called Volupties.  Fast forward 7 years, and now Anthony is a well known entrepreneur in the subscription industry.  He's spoken at SubSummit and Subta, arguably the two biggest subscription conferences in the world in 2018 and 2019 respectively.  

On today’s episode, Anthony and I discuss what it takes to grow a company from nothing using effective methods when bootstrapping like word of mouth.  We also discuss when it's appropriate to start hiring members for your team and where they fit in your company.
