E38 #BusinesBites John Larkin, founder, The Black Stuff, soap but without the drama
It's just like the script from a soap operaFormer COO of MooCall John Larkin is winding down another business, finds a notebook where he has jotted down 'brilliant business ideas', sees that he had previously looked at the personal soap business and instead of talking and researching it further, he just went and did it. It being, he set up The Black Stuff,, as his soap is laced with...the other black stuff. From humble beginnings in his South Dublin kitchen table, where learnt how to swill soap from YouTube videos, he now has 5 full time employees and has moved into new industrial premises. He sells mostly online and how he got his big US breakthrough will make you smile, as, in business, opportunities come from the most unlikely sources. John was introduced to That Great Business Show by the good guys at Parcel Planet that we had on the show recently as he is using their Birmingham hub to ship to the UK (avoiding all the hassles of Brexit) and next he's heading for their new Parcel Planet hub in the Netherlands, serving the huge French and German markets.Soap. Inspirational. With thanks to DoneDeal.ie Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

He's also just launched a natural deodorant. Could the scent be the sweet smell of success. It's a great story. And John is great fun.Anthony Tattan, founder Business IN South Africa got to know how to do business there whilst working for an Irish based telecoms company. Having left the Irish business, and realising what was on offer from an English speaking, highly educated workforce, he decided he could help Irish business navigate their way there, where they can find a terrific 'can do' attitude that conveniently is almost on the same time zone as Ireland. He's already helping companies in the IT and accountancy sectors....and with skilled workers in severe short supply in Ireland, it's time to see what Anthony can recommend. Hosted on Acast.
