In your opinion, what is the most valuable thing about Factory45?
Having the lessons, videos, resources and content helped me get my business started…. but the community (Shannon included) empowered me to FINISH what I began. There were so many times I wanted to throw up my white flag and quit.
Starting a business is scary. I’ve never felt so exposed and vulnerable creating something I wanted people to love. But no matter where I was mentally, the F45 community listened to my concerns, lifted me up, and truly wanted me to succeed. Having this support was everything. I STILL have that support thanks to F45! I’m forever grateful.
What were some big or small milestones you hit after going through Factory45?
I have so many. Getting my first round of my sample felt so much more powerful than getting my final sample. I think it’s because my first round was the first time ever seeing the potential of my design.
Launching on Kickstarter and getting funded was also memorable. But the biggest milestone for me was more of a personal journey. I learned that it’s okay to go at your own pace. That it’s okay to take a step back. Hit pause. Your business will survive. By accepting that I need to take care of me first, my business began to thrive.
