Building Flying Sparks Garage - Emily & Aaron Reeves | 22

Add Article To List
Show Notes

Emily and Aaron Reeves have always known they wanted to run a business together. After Emily’s successful modeling and acting career, as well as a Aaron’s previous business becoming harder to run, they sat down to figure out a new plan. They both loved cars, Aaron has enough experience to build anything, and Emily had a ton of marketing and small business experience.

A Youtube channel made sense. They could combine their passion for cars with their business skills and potentially have something really successful.

But anyone on Youtube can tell you, it’s not easy. Far from it. The obstacles were enormous, but they decided to chase the dream, even if it meant sleeping in shifts. Today, their Flying Sparks Garage channel has over 200,000 subscribers, a loyal following and more than a few offshoots. For good reason. Their automotive content is realistic, family friendly and inspiring builders everywhere to get into the garage and start building.
