This company blew past $30M in revenue amidst a pandemic!

Sean Riley joins the Wavebreak Podcast to talk about how DUDE found success growing from a tiny bootstrapped company started by 4 longtime friends living in a small Chicago apartment.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • The first step you need to take to bring your product idea to life—and why discovering “World of Wipes” was a key turning point.
  • How DUDE convinced manufacturers to take a risk on their company back before they were a household name.
  • Why getting listed on Amazon made it easier to convince brick and mortar stores to stock DUDE products.
