Interview With 6-Figure Business Owner Matteo Hon

We interviewed a 17-year old, already founder of two six-figure businesses

Published on December 27, 2021

Which businesses do you own?

“I am the founder of two six-figure businesses, Oblique Jewels and Top Music Marketing Agency®. Oblique Jewels is more than just a jewelry store, it is a family. Having sold more than thousands of products, we have been in the market for more than 3 years. Top Music Marketing Agency® is a more recent company founded in 2019 that projects musical artists of all genres to the next level. We support our clients with a large and organic following which provides them a platform to grow exponentially for the following years of their career.”

Why did you choose these industries?

“I chose the jewelry industry and music industry for two main reasons: competitive markets and passion. I have always loved accessories, and back in 2018, with the iced-out jewelry trends, I decided to launch this business. Luckily, I was able to succeed with it and obtain great results! For music, I have always loved the music of all genres, and was looking forward to helping emerging artists have a platform.”

Please share your entrepreneurial journey.

“I am Matteo Hon, and I am currently 17 years old. I attend the American Overseas School of Rome. I started being passionate about eCommerce thanks to COVID-19. While in quarantine, my friend, Alessandro, who is also a business partner, was learning about eCommerce. I decided to learn along with him and immediately liked the idea of having my own online store. After days of watching YouTube videos, I decided to try it out. And here are the results! I currently own two successful online businesses.”

What are some of your most notable achievements?

“With Oblique Jewels, I have reached more than 10,000 orders and 1,000 reviews. With TMMA, I was able to reach 5000 sales recently.”

What drives you?

“Passion and hard work are the main things that drive me. I have been taught by my parents that in order to succeed you need hard work, regardless of who you are. Passion will essentially make you want to do what you are doing more easily, without any feelings of tiredness.”

What advice do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs?

“Well, my advice is to always try. Even if you fail, you will have learned something. Without trying you will be at point 0.”
