Why I Started a Face Mask Company

Posted by Carlos Gil on

There’s no way to sugarcoat it: COVID-19 has caused me and countless entrepreneurs to reassess our business models in both the long and short term, and many of us have had to pivot in new directions.

But even though this change can be difficult and frustrating, considering all the time and effort that went into building up your pre-pandemic business, I know firsthand that it’s possible to adapt.

Successful entrepreneurs find ways to create solutions to people’s needs, especially in times of crisis.

That’s why I’ve launched Outlaw Masks, a new venture that sells washable, stylish face coverings with replaceable filters.

I’ve long been interested in e-commerce, and now’s my chance to build a new business while hopefully helping others by trying to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Like it or not, masks are likely to be part of our everyday lives in many parts of the US for the foreseeable future. Already, many cities and states require masks to be worn in public places, and they could continue to be required even as some businesses can re-open.

The site is open for orders, with masks available in 10 colors, costing $29.95 each + S&H. And 10% of each purchase will be donated, another way I try to do my part to help others while finding ways to grow as an entrepreneur.

If you’re looking to bulk order for your business, please get in touch. And if you have any questions about the masks or want to talk about how you can pivot as an entrepreneur, please feel free to reach out anytime.

Stay safe,

Carlos "The Kid" Gil
