270: $100MM in Less than Two Years: How Perfect Keto Grew a 9-Figure Business

Posted by Austin Brawner on September 22, 2020

Perfect Keto started off as a side project and then experienced massive growth — making $100MM in just 19 months.

Dr. Anthony Gustin cofounded Perfect Keto as a side project in November of 2016. He had one goal in mind: making keto easy. Within 4 hours of launching, the company made $20,000 and took off like a rocketship since. Little did he know, the creation of Perfect Keto was at the rise of one of the largest diet crazes of the past 50 years. 

Anthony joins us to talk about Perfect Keto’s growth, his business beliefs, and why he thinks going into retail is the last resort. We also discuss his experience of burnout and how entrepreneurs can best avoid it. 

Enjoy!
