Dealing With COVID Lockdowns As A New Gym Owner with Montana Rosekelly

How this young entrepreneur 10x'd his revenue AND built a million-dollar fashion label

How does a former professional football player turned young entrepreneur help grow a new fashion label to 7-figures in under 12 months? The quick answer? By taking the lessons he's learned from his business coach. Sounds simple, but Jye Bohm, the Director of PROFINISH and Director of Front Runner, will tell you otherwise.

With a 6 year journey in business with half of it working with The Entourage's coaches, Jye has been able to grow PROFINISH Fire Protection & Coatings from $1.5 million to $20 million, AND help childhood friend, Tim Hanly, accelerate the growth of new startup and Aussie fashion label, Front Runner, too. But it wasn't easy. From doing nearly everything in business, working more hours despite hiring new staff, and feeling like a jack of all trades but master of none, Jye shares his journey of overcoming challenges like these to becoming a more seasoned entrepreneur, and how you can too.

This 'Making It Happen with Members' bonus episode of The Make It Happen Show dives into the common setbacks many startups and small businesses face, how you can avoid them, and elevate to the next level. Check it out.

Amazing guests


Loved the episode with Tim Fung, Airtasker CEO! You guys are getting some awesome guests in! Thank you!

Entourage on point again!

Adz Rodger

Great content again from The Entourage! Particularly like the 1st episode and the points Tim Fung made about making sure you make time to map out the future and don't get stuck on day to day 'work', as well as the observation that you really need to be strategic about your people management and not just try to save money. Two awesome take homes I have already taken action on!

For entrepreneurs and non-trepeneurs alike


Well this was one of the best things I’ve heard in a while. I’m by no means the target demographic, having zero business or entrepreneurial experience at all. Luckily the advice given for business growth and success is remarkably applicable to personal growth and success. Loved the conversational style, by the end of the podcast I felt like I knew both Tims personally, which is a great mark of engagement. And I loved hearing about the humble beginnings of Airtasker from the founder himself. Give this a listen if you’re craving a bit of personal or professional inspiration.
