“Before joining Factory45, I was my own barrier to entry. I explored an idea, generated 1,000,000 reasons it would work, shared excitedly with friends, and then put it to bed – before it ever had the chance to see sunlight.
Two months into Factory45, I took a different approach to evaluating my business model. I used the tools Shannon provided and the community of brave thinkers to problem solve around a challenge, extrapolate new solutions, and generate progress. And I learned something profound: it was not the ideas fizzling out. It was me. Before Factory45, I was marching this road alone. After? Well, there is no after. Because this is a community I will cling to indefinitely.
Entrepreneurs, creatives, kite flyers, lion tamers and designers alike need process to evaluate a business opportunity and people to support in accountability (and straight up extroverted energy). Within the strategies and road map developed by Shannon, I have been more mentally available to see new possibilities in a simple business model. As a consultant for retail companies of varied sizes and a dreamer of a new business idea in process, I have found Shannon’s work is invaluable.
Don’t get in your own way, my friend. Join in partnership with individuals who will hold you up and guide you through. The mountainous business perils will level out….and you will find that promised land!”
