Ready Steady Print
Starting an online business in the printing industry at age 21 meant that Joshua Kamil faced what he called “a constant challenge” to convince customers to change printing companies and purchase online. Nearly five years on, the strategy has paid off handsomely for Ready Steady Print, with revenue now standing at $1.5 million. This figure is set to rise substantially with 45% growth expected for the upcoming year.
