Jon Shanahan Interview – Makeup for men: A multi-billion dollar industry?

January 6, 2021

Welcome to another episode of the Alpha M Podcast. In this episode, I got to sit down with Jon Shanahan from Stryx. You may know him from the The Kavalier and in this episode we got to chat about his journey to being a full time YouTuber, leaving the corporate world working for Apple and now his business Stryx.

Is men’s makeup a market to keep a close eye on?

In this interview, we speak about:

– Jon’s journey from corporate world to YouTube

– When he decided to leave his job and the strategy he took to continue providing for his family

– Jon’s view on fast fashion and outlets and why you should avoid most brand names

– Why as an entrepreneur you almost become hard to hire

– Monetizing his channel through affiliate schemes and reviews

– Stryx, the journey and the mission they’re on

– The early growth Stryx is seeing as a business entering a relatively new market

– Insider secrets into the strategy behind Stryx and their growth

– Should men wear make up? A discussion between Aaron and Jon Plus so much more…

Thanks to Jon for being on!
