“Through Factory45, I created a brand and a product that I believed in, that was beautiful, high quality and socially and environmentally responsible. We launched a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised almost $90K.”
“After Factory45, I have more clarity on what I’m doing with my business and the direction I want to take it. I’m currently in the experimental phase of creating some new products that I hope to add to my line later this year or beginning of next.”
“The fact that I could email Shannon at any time, no matter how basic the question, was worth every investment in the program. I also found the checklists and templates extremely helpful. I love working through a to-do list and to have one that walked me through all of the exact steps I needed to take made the process so much more manageable.”
“I have managed to create my brand, source fabrics, find a pattern and sample maker (locally) and find a manufacturer (locally). These are things that never would have been possible had it not been for Shannon's lessons, connections, calls and ongoing support.”

After Factory45, I won the Creative Coast's FastPitch business competition for local startups and launched a successful Kickstarter campaign. We were fully funded in one week and went on to raise $20,000+ for our first production run.

Words cannot even describe how much joining Factory45 has helped me grow and shape Be Kind Vibes into the brand I have always envisioned. I began this project completely blind, and Shannon has given me the tools to create a successful, sustainable brand.
