How To Make $15 Million From Five REALLY RICH Clients.


2006 revenue: between $10 million and $15 million

Raven Kauffman specializes in glamour —bringing it to her clients in the form of luxury gifts, fashion, and event planning, among other services.

Kauffman has been assisting celebrities and other wealthy individuals with their luxe needs since around 2001, but officially incorporated her two-employee business in 2006.

"Wardrobe acquisition" is Kauffman's specialty, but her job requires much more than just a trip to the department store. "I have close relationships with designers all over the world, and I often acquire one-of-a-kind pieces for my clients," says Kauffman.

Her company makes about $10 million to $15 million a year in revenue and serves only five or six clients a year.
