Casey Jolly Interview – January 2017

We are very strict about only including high quality items that bring value to our customers.

For those who do not know you, can you introduce yourself?

My name’s Casey Jolly and I’m a serial entrepreneur who goes to Miami University.

What is the PMS package and how did it come about?

The PMS Package is a monthly subscription service for women that hopes to make their dreaded time of the month a little better. Our packages have healthy snacks, some candy, comfort items, and more handpicked items that change every month. The company was originally started by my good friends Luke Buchy and Jon Bouldin, who then got myself and Ashton Onesko involved. We all have backgrounds in digital marketing and we used that to launch it off the ground.

What does your team consist of?

Our core team based in Columbus consists of Luke Buchy, Jon Bouldin, Ashton Onesko, Evan Cutler, Anthony Mancini, Anna Buchy, Mark Buchy, and myself. There are many more who help us run the company from different aspects as well.

What is the process of putting that package together and shipping it out to those who order?

Our core team handpicks each item that we feel will bring comfort with our packages. We are very strict about only including high quality items that bring value to our customers. We have a wonderful team out in California that handles all of our fulfillment and shipping of packages. Without them and their expertise, there’s no way we’d be able to run this company.

How’d people find out about your website in order to purchase the packages you offered?

We do a lot of digital marketing through many different online ad channels. We also have received a lot of organic media attention through companies like Seventeen, Cosmopolitan, Today, and more.

How’d you get started in entrepreneurship in general? Did you have any big influences?

I’ve always been interested in entrepreneurship starting with flipping things on eBay. I’ve tried a lot of things, most of which have failed, but others that have not that keep me going. A couple people who I look up to and are big influences include Gary Vaynerchuk, David Orr, and Branden Hampton.

Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to start their own business?

It is super cliche, but never give up and always have a solid group of people interested in the same things as you to bounce ideas off and help you when needed and vice versa.

Finally, are you UpByFive?

I do my best and am getting better at it!
