"Seriously the worlds best beard oil!! My husbands beard used to be sparse and sound crunchy ... now it is oh so soft, full, & majestic. Oh, and it smells AMAZING too!!"
This entrepreneur is near and dear to my heart. He is my husband. My bestest friend. My dance partner. ;) It has been a fun journey to watch his beard grow. One day, at the age of 32, he just got tired of shaving. He threw in the razor and embraced the idea of facial hair. The idea figuratively grew on me and literally grew on him. haha Who would have thought that this glorious ginger beard was hiding under his skin all those years.
At around month 3 of growing a beard, my dear husband crafted some beard oil to solve his own crisis - a dry itchy beard. He was the first to reap the benefits of this amazing product. His beard became softer - almost instantaneously. His skin was moisturized and gone were the days of an itchy beard. Then the idea of Yukons Beard was born. I spent many hours designing the perfect logo and corresponding labels, business cards, packaging, etc. He spent many hours perfecting 8 different beard oil scents - the combination of all natural carrier and essential oils. We had a lot of fun picking out the perfect names for these scents - all centered around the theme of Yukon Cornelius (from the infamous Rudolph cartoon)!! Like Woodsman Beard Oil, Yukons Gold, Permafrost, Vanilla Ice Pick, and Prospector Peppermint.
We have an amazing story of how we met and we love sharing it with folks. In a very small nutshell -- my dad picked him out for me. <--- Click there to read all the juicy details and to see some of our wedding photos.
Now, on to the interview (and fun photos)!!
TONY ANSWERS THE INTERVIEW QUESTIONS BELOW:
1. Tell us a little bit about your business, Yukons Beard.
I launched Yukons Beard in March of 2015. Since then we've been helping men to grow beards by hand-crafting premium beard oils and balms. We infuse our beard oils & balms with generous amounts of amazing essential oils that smell so good! We don't cut corners when it comes to ingredients. You're going to get the best beard oil and the best beard balm with a very high percentage of essential oils. Tremendous thought & care goes into crafting our beard oils and beard balms to produce extraordinary products that help the bearded man get a smoother, softer beard, quicker, even if they have the toughest, bristly beard.
2. What little piece of advice would you share with a fellow entrepreneur?
Take joy in what you are doing, whatever you are doing, no matter if you find it mundane; be your best at it. Remind yourself often, of important truths; write them, say them, preach them, sing them, do them, live them.
3. As you started Yukons Beard, what resources (book or podcast) have been an encouragement to you?
The Entrepreneur on Fire podcast has always been a favorite because the info you get is practical and you get to learn from other peoples' failure and success.
4. How was your experience with ShaynaMade?
ShaynaMade was awesome from start to finish. She is my wife, after all. ;) Shayna rocks when it comes to creativity and designing the perfect business cards! The latest cards I got are the inverse oreo thick business cards and they...are...SUPER...AWESOME!
5. What is your favorite "pick-me-up" on a bad day?
Craft beer at our local bottle shop, date nights with my amazing wife, evening walks around our neighborhood, and kettle bell swings makes for a pretty good pick me up. Oh, and of course applying beard oil. The stuff smells amazing and is very relaxing (I apply beard oil at least 3 times a day).
DO WE HAVE A FAVORITE SCENT OF BEARD OIL?
Oh goodness! It would be so hard to choose which scent is our favorite. Hmmmmm =)
The woodsman beard oil is actually the very first beard oil that Tony crafted. It's an awesome woodsy scent that is highlighted with rosemary and pine essential oils. It is definitely a popular choice ... especially for those that are buying beard oil for the first time. It seems like a safe option. And we have had rave reviews about it!
But that's not to say that our other beard oils aren't receiving amazing feedback! Guys love the stuff!! And even the wives get excited about it because gone are the days of scratchy beards. Their husbands beards become soft, supple, and amazing smelling. Can't get any better than that. The top two sellers at this time are: Woodsman beard oil and Yukons Gold beard oil (which has frankincense and myrrh).
WHERE TO BUY?
You can always buy Yukons Beard oil on our website... we send beard packages all over the world. We also have our product in 4 shops around Goldsboro, NC and 1 shop in Asheville, NC.
