From starting his business in his bedroom to being the founder of a £105 million pound public company, Adam Frisby is the success story we needed to hear!
The founder and CEO of the fashion brand In The Style, announced that the company he started seven years ago in his bedroom, traded in the London stock exchange at £105 million pounds.
In The Style is an online womenswear brand that Adam launched in 2013. The company has since worked with high-profile celebrities on fashion collection collaborations.
Adam Frisby has had much success, but it hasn’t come without its challenges. At just the tender age of 15-years-old, Adam was kicked out of his home.
Taking to social media, Adam said: “I will always remember how I felt as that young boy who was kicked out of my home at 15-years-old, chucked on a train with 50p & told I would never amount to anything.
“At 15, with no qualifications, I had to go find a home & a job to start earning some money.”
In an interview with The Mirror, the entrepreneur explained that he went to stay with his grandmother and worked many jobs, including a job at Burger King.
After giving up his job to look after his brother who was in hospital, Adam began working for a charity but was eventually made redundant.
During this period of turmoil, In The Style was born. Adam stated: “I remember for so many years feeling so lost about what the hell I was going to do with my life. I had no confidence, I was totally lost. One afternoon after being made redundant, with under £1000 in my account, I decided to go for it…ITS (In The Style) was born in my bedroom.”
Adam’s story is inspiring and teaches us to go for our dreams. Making the success story even better, In The Style went from £105 million to £123million in value on its first day in the London stock exchange.
Writing on Instagram, Adam sated: “When ITS (In The Style) floated yesterday at £105m, I thought it couldn’t get any better and by the end of the first day of trading, we were valued at £123m.”
We wish Adam and In The Style more success.
