What is the most valuable thing about Factory45?
The most valuable component of Factory45 is its founder. Shannon has developed an incredible community and online library of invaluable resources. Her patience allowed me to brainstorm ideas and find what really drove all of my ideas — people. In discovering that I was the most passionate about building up people, I was able to align on a business opportunity that does just that and maintains a focus on ethically made fashion. Smockbox became the best of all worlds — and that’s what made it work.
In your opinion, who would benefit most from joining Factory45?
Factory45 is for the dreamer. If you’ve held onto an idea for any length of time, the opportunity for action is now.
Factory45 is for the creative. More often than not, creatives are extroverts. Extroverts need community in which to really thrive. But finding a community to support a business venture is challenging (to say the least). Factory45 can be that community…and more!
Factory45 is for the doer. The Factory45 community is as diverse as it is unique. Each person brings skills, passion, and context. If you’ve gone down the launch road before, Factory45 is for you — because you can share your story! Additionally, if you choose, take a chance to rewrite your own!
