Matt & Katherine

Matt & Katherine Phipps


In 2018, Matt and his wife Katherine were stationed overseas in Annapolis, Maryland as part of Matt’s British Royal Air Force Career. On one commute, while listening to a podcast, Matt learned about the e-commerce model and selling on Amazon specifically. When he got home, he pitched the idea of this new side hustle to clinical psychologist Katherine, who jumped on board without hesitation, and even stepped up to lead the new adventure. Fast forward 12 months and they’d grown a $1m e-commerce brand in the toys and games space. A year later, Matt retired from his 21-year career to join Kata full-time in the business. Together they continued to grow a multi-7-figure business before exiting after 3 years, in 2021. Hey have since started a second brand which is following a similar trajectory.
