This week, we are re-releasing April Foster’s amazing episode! April is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Inked Brands, where she’s obsessed with starting & scaling microbrands, many of which are founded by influencers or media companies.
Prior to founding Inked, April co-founded Studio Calico, a leader in the direct-to-consumer paper-crafting category, where she pioneered subscription services and organically scaled from a $4k initial investment to multiple 7-figures in a few years.
April has been named an Entrepreneur of the Year in Kentucky as well as been recognized on the Inc5000 list of fastest-growing companies in three consecutive years. She’s obsessed with combining relevant products, paid content, and smart marketing with influencer brands such as Studio DIY, The Bucket List Family, Meghan Rienks, and Ali Edwards. She’s most proud of her family, however, and she lives on a farm in Bowling Green, Kentucky with her husband, Greg, and their five children: Claire (10), Cal (8), Sam (8), Kit (6), and baby Nell.
