LadyBoss ranks 4th on 2019 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies
In less than five years, millennial couple Brandon and Kaelin Poulin, have turned LadyBoss® into a global phenomenon that Inc. magazine has named the fourth fastest-growing company in the United States for 2019. LadyBoss also was named #1 in Consumer Products and Services and topped the list at #1 for New Mexico companies.
The $30-million, e-commerce startup provides weight loss products and services designed specifically for women.
In 2018, LadyBoss achieved $32.4 million in revenue by serving more than 175,000 women. The company is on track to nearly double these numbers by 2020.
“When you first start your business, you don’t really think about awards, or recognition, because you’re so focused on growing your business,” says Brandon Poulin, CEO, and co-founder of LadyBoss.
After years of participating in “trendy’ diets” and struggling with food addiction and depression, Kaelin successfully lost weight and learned to love herself in the process. Her 65-pound weight loss transformation inspired her and her husband to create LadyBoss®.
“I knew I could use my own story of weight loss and finding love for myself to help other women in similar situations do the same,” says Kaelin, Chief Marketing Officer and co-founder of LadyBoss. “The response and support from women throughout the world that are working hard at their own goals while supporting other women continue to amaze me.”
Kaelin went on to tackle weight loss myths and share her personal transformation with her first book Big Fat Lies. The book hit shelves in April 2017 and quickly jumped to best-selling lists on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
“Our success would not be possible without our devoted LadyBoss community,” added Kaelin.
The businesses on the 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
“Being an Inc. 500 recipient is an honor, and I can’t wait to see our team’s impact as we continue to grow and help even more women around the world,” adds Brandon.
LadyBoss also was named one of New Mexico’s fastest-growing companies this week by Albuquerque Business First.
