Where were you with your idea or business before joining Factory45?
Funny story, when I joined Factory45, I was visiting LA to meet with a development company to kick off my business. I has just finished a particularly rough and intimidating meeting with them and remember sitting at a coffee shop seriously contemplating my options.
Factory45 applications has just opened but hadn’t applied because the quote I got for development was even more than the price of Factory45. I really felt like I could succeed in this business I had an idea (and sketches and an instagram account) for, but this development meeting frankly had me feeling really small. I had some money for development and probably a little production.
At that point, I had probably spent a year eating up any free education I could get- podcasts, books, videos and I was so ready to start! I knew vaguely where to start but didn’t have the network or the understanding to ensure I wasn’t being taken advantage of. Even when I got the quote from this company I was feeling uneasy about the price.
Ultimately, I decided to apply to Factory45 because I felt it was the kind of quality education I needed for my business. I know I have what it takes and though any business is a risk, I want to take wise risks. I felt Factory45 would be a choice that would decrease risk and increase stability for my business.
