From Struggles to Success: Brenna & Ricky Murphy’s Pink Nookie Journey


In this captivating clip of EYL, we dive deep into the inspiring story of Brenna and Ricky Murphy, the dynamic duo behind Pink Nookie, an herbal feminine hygiene brand. Hosts Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings take us on an emotional journey, revealing how Brenna and Ricky transformed their lives despite battling immense personal struggles.

Brenna shares how she got the idea for Pink Nookie during her pregnancy when her PH balance was thrown off. With her husband Ricky battling heroin addiction, they were flat broke. Brenna turned to holistic remedies she could afford with her food stamp card to address her issues. With Ricky’s encouragement, she started sharing her homemade products with friends and family, which laid the foundation for Pink Nookie.

Ricky’s journey to sobriety adds a layer of resilience to their story. He shares how a six-month stint in jail during the early days of COVID-19 helped him get clean. Despite the personal and financial challenges, Brenna continued to work on Pink Nookie, turning her last paycheck into an initial investment for proper product packaging. What started with Tupperware containers quickly grew into a thriving business.

This episode also explores the challenges and triumphs that came with taking Pink Nookie from a homemade remedy to a product with high demand during the pandemic. With unemployment rates soaring, people had time and inclination to try new products, and social media played a crucial role in Pink Nookie’s growth. Brenna reveals how they marketed their products organically on platforms like Facebook without any paid advertising initially.

As their business grew, so did their need for a more structured setup. They retired Brenna’s mom, opened a brick-and-mortar location in Indianapolis, and even considered expanding to Atlanta after attending Invest Fest. The couple’s story serves as a quintessential example of turning adversity into opportunity, using limited resources to create something impactful.

Their candid discussion extends to dealing with social stigma around feminine hygiene and creating a comfortable space for conversations about PH balance and natural remedies. This relatable, real-life success story is not just motivating; it’s a testament to what can be achieved with grit, determination, and a supportive partnership.
