Hi, Kickfurther community, we're back with another exciting co-op!
We are Enlightening Minds LLC, an e-commerce company connecting great products with the world. We have launched 4 Co-Ops so far, one and two are complete, the third is selling on schedule, and the fourth recently received funding and we just made our first payout on that deal a couple weeks early. We see Kickfurther as the best possible way to cash flow our business, increase our exposure, and connect with supportive individuals.
For a little background, Enlightening Minds began in 2008 with one man and a car trunk full of used books to sell on Amazon. Now, nearly a decade later, Enlightening Minds is housed inside a 22,000 sq ft warehouse with nearly thirty employees. In 2017, we delivered over 150,000 products to consumers worldwide. Those products ranged from used books to health and beauty supplies, to glass cleaner, coloring tablecloths, and baby teething formula.
We made over $3,000,000 in sales in 2017. Revenue has nearly doubled year over year since 2012.
We are excited about the cash flow, but even more excited about the community nature of the platform. It's something that is ingrained in our company culture. Just take a look at our lifetime performance on Amazon to understand how serious we are about customer support and our reputation.
We commit to providing an update every 2 weeks as long as things are on schedule. If issues arise, we commit to being even more communicative while they are resolved.
We also commit to (if need be) helping supplement the Co-Op with Revenue from other product sales in order to keep the Co-Op on schedule if sales do not immediately match out projections.
We commit to being one of your favorite brands on Kickfurther in terms of reliability of performance AND communication.
This co-op will be for Channing Bete, Channing Bete is a leading publisher of booklets, folders, handbooks, presentations, and other publications. They are the leading publisher and distributor of the American Heart Association Course Materials, including their CPR guide, training supplies, and educational brochures and books. Enlightening Minds has been a third-party supplier of Channing Bete products on Amazon for over two years, and they have consistently been our top seller. We're currently low on stock of Channing Bete products, and are hoping the Kickfurther community could help us place our next order on this "Demand Proven" product!
This co-op will be fulfilled by Amazon, meaning our product will be sent to and shipped directly from Amazon's facilities.
