Today we’d like to introduce you to Bobby Joshua.
Bobby, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Well, I started growing my beard out in 2016 after I proposed to my now wife. My intent was to grow it out until the wedding, however through the process my wife and I enjoyed the look more and more. Since she liked the look, who am I to say differently and cut it.
From there I tried a few products, but none seem to work for me nor did they live up to their description as listed. My beard was still dry, the scent was too much or not enough. it wasn’t for my skin/hair type, etc. So, I formulated my own natural based products as a solution to promote healthy growth for my beard. I had no clue that I would become a walking advertisement. After a few people started asking me what I used in my beard, I started to bottle and sell it to close friends.
Once I noticed that there was a demand for my product in the market, it was off to the races. We came up a name Dr Goat, completed the product line, and developed a website so everyone is able to get a product that is proven to work! A Quality Product for the Modern Man!
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Smooth road? – Using the road analogy, I would describe it as if you are driving through one of the Houston neighborhoods with a elementary school in the middle of it. The road starts off smooth and straight at a modest speed, then all of a sudden speed drop to 20 mph out of nowhere, followed by one of those really big speed bumps, then a one way street that’s not in the direction you wanted to go. I think that’s business in general.
So, It hasn’t been a smooth road just some parts are easier than other. For example, I have a background in business therefore the business aspect (accounting, marketing, managing, suppliers) came easy to me. However, IT, web design, shipping, and social media I knew very little. I really had to work to understand those things. Those were rough times for me and also set me back as I missed opportunities.
Even though, the road isn’t as easy as one might as one might want it to be, I tell everyone to enjoy the process. When you enjoy the process, you actually learn from your mistakes, perfect your craft, and can look back and say, “I really did that”.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Dr Goat Beard & Facial Care – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
No big changes coming up. We have great products and they work! No need to fix what’s not broken.
As far as future plans, we have a few things in mind, but are still reviewing to see what is the best option. We are considering expanding our product line to encompass more facial care products or body products, but nothing set in stone.
Our biggest focus is to continue to grow the brand through pop-up shops and through the website.
