How did joining Factory45 help you?
Quite frankly, I don’t think I would have had the guts to launch the business without F45. Sometimes you enroll in a program, and by the end of it you think, “I could have figured this out on my own.” You can’t say that about Factory45. Starting a clothing brand is hard. The industry is very technical and old school in terms of how business is done. My millennial “I will look it up’ mindset did not apply for most stages of building my clothing brand.
I am a believer that confidence can help you achieve anything. Factory 45 certainly gave me that confidence. Between Shannon’s mentorship, the lessons and assignments, the databases, and the community, anything seemed possible. It was a huge help to know that my peers were going through the same challenges as me. It felt like we were all this together, which made it a lot more fun.
