Well known one-man startups that have revenues / profit over $1M?


Are there any startups that are run by a single person (bootstrapped by solo founder with no employees) that generate revenues over $1M?

Markus Frind of PlentyofFish. Until recent years, he didn't have any employees and was generating well over $1M/year as a solo entrepreneur.

Some interviews with Markus that are an interesting read:

The biggest part of his success that I find interesting is not just him achieving it. It's how he's been able to sustain it over the years. That is just as hard to do.

  • That is exactly whom I was thinking of when I saw the title! There is also Ben Huh, owner of Cheezburger Network (maybe no longer), who had all those meme photo sites. – Starrychloe S. 3 years ago

There are lots of "super affiliates" in the affiliate marketing industry that also make over $1 million in affiliate commissions. Jeremy Schoemaker, John Chow, etc.
