This young man with Down Syndrome starts his own million-dollar sock company

John Lee Cronin is a young man with Down’s Syndrome and he’s on a mission — he wants to spread happiness and cheer through colorful socks! The 21-year-old entrepreneur decided to turn his love for socks into a business once he graduated from high school.

In December 2016, John and his dad Mark Cronin started an online business and named it John’s Crazy Socks. It is basically a pick-and-pack warehouse, which means they distribute socks made by other companies.

In a little over a year, John’s Crazy Socks had shipped more than 42,000 orders and brought in nearly $2 million in revenue. They currently offer 1,500 different kinds of socks.

What’s more, their business hires people with disabilities. John’s Crazy Socks also donates 5 percent of its profits to the Special Olympics. John himself is a Special Olympics athlete.
