    Ben Lebowitz started West & Willow, a modern pet portrait brand, less than a year ago.

    And when he started, he knew it was a crowded market.

    But he saw an opportunity.

    An opportunity to build a real brand in the space.

     

    And he had the perfect background to make it happen.

    After working in the agency world for a decade, he knew a thing or two about brand-building.

    So he set off on a print on demand journey with just $1500 and a lot of late nights on YouTube.

    And in 2 days, his business was profitable.

    Fast forward one year later, and West & Willow has turned into a thriving ecommerce brand. Here’s how he did it.
