Young Johnny Earle saw the time his parents spent commuting to work and thought, wouldn’t it be nice to work for myself and spend more time with my family? An entrepreneurial teenager who started 16 successful businesses by the time he was 16 years old, Earle struck gold with an idea that began as a silly nickname. A friend gave Earle the nickname “Johnny Cupcake.” Hmm, Earle thought – wouldn’t that be a fun theme for a t-shirt company? Since 2001, Earle has parlayed his idea from a start-up selling t-shirts out of his car into a multi-million dollar brand, including storefronts designed to look like bakeries and a marketing model that follows his bakery theme all the way through to putting sprinkles in the packaging of his online orders.
Earle’s “Johnny Cupcake” enterprise hasn’t been all about the bottom line. He has been able to hire family members and provide opportunities for friends – all part of his goal of forging both enterprise and community. A master of creative, Millennial-geared marketing with a flair for the unusual, Earle’s experience provides a blueprint for anyone interested in turning a passion or an idea into a successful business enterprise. Earle speaks frequently to college and university audiences and has shared his insight with business audiences ranging from entrepreneurial networks to some of the world’s leading corporations.
