🍟 Thursday 3: HOLIDAY EDITION 🎄
Tipsy Elves | A Holiday Lighting Franchise | & More
Welcome to The Wolf Report, a 2x/week email covering up & coming franchises & small business entrepreneur’s. If you’re reading this but haven’t subscribed, you can do so here:
In the spirit of the holidays, I decided to do a themed newsletter today.
Before we get into it, some housekeeping items:
Going forward, the “Thursday 3” edition of the newsletter will always have a franchise breakdown, but the other 2 sections will be flexible & will vary between podcasts, tweets, articles, YouTube videos, quotes, etc.
Next week I’ll be sending 2 special edition newsletters, but instead of the regular Monday-Thursday schedule it will be Tuesday-Thursday (ol’ Wolf is turning another year older on Monday the 27th 🥳 ).
Lastly, regardless of if you’re celebrating Christmas in 2 days, I hope you all have a great final few days of the year and get some time to reflect on the things that matter to you.
As for what’s next, big things are coming in 2022 and I’m pumped to have you along for the ride!
Let’s get to it👇
As an avid watcher of Shark Tank, Tipsy Elves is one of my favorite companies I’ve seen from the show.
From “Getting Lit” to “Santa’s Twerkshop”, their ugly-sweater success all started with some creativity, a bit of SEO savviness, and a lawyer who realized he hated his job.

Eddie Murphy is hilarious. The video is 3.5 minutes of light-hearted fun, guaranteed to make you laugh.

The Wolf’s Take 🍟
For 90 days of work the numbers aren’t bad. If you’re someone who has some extra time and could use a seasonal side hobby for some decent cash (margins are supposedly 30-40%), then this low cost franchise could be a good gig!
If you’d rather take a stab at this without a franchise, check out this twitter thread from a holiday lighting professional!
