It's time for episode 11 of our podcast, the Small Business Sessions.

It was definitely not the usual career progression for Enterprise Nation member Rob Hallmark, founder of Gruhme.

Rob Hallmark Gruhme

He went from being a corporate lawyer on the hunt for a value-for-money but high quality male grooming brand, to being so frustrated he couldn't find one that he set a company up himself!

In this session, Birmingham-based Rob is super honest about how tough it can be to start a brand but he's equally as honest about the immense satisfaction there is around eventually being approached about it once you've managed to build one. A firm believer in taking thing step by step and focusing on making a product that you would actually want to buy rather than being too distracted by what the big guys are up to, this member is a mighty fine example of entrepreneurship.
