I've seen it all...

There’s no shortage of information about entrepreneurship on the internet. You can Google or watch YouTube videos on how to build a business, but those resources won’t show you how to put it all together or what pitfalls to avoid when you’re in the thick of things. My entire business was built from years of trial and error, a determined attitude, and hard work. Anytime I thought I had figured it all out—BOOM—I’d be hit with another lesson.



SEW WHAT?

I vividly remember the time I shipped 500 Brick Built Waist Trimmers from China to South Carolina, only to have them detained at customs because they didn’t have “Made in China” labels. I had researched EVERYTHING for this order. I even visited China to gain insight into the whole distribution process. Yet, there I was sitting in the warehouse at the Columbia, SC airport for two days, sewing in the labels so I could retrieve my shipment. Talk about learning the hard way! But it was all a part of the learning process that has helped me design this course, Branded from Scratch.



Building a successful business will require you to dig deeper and work harder than you ever have. But by enrolling in Branded from Scratch, you’ll be able to build and scale a lot more quickly than I did. The experiences in my life make me the perfect mentor to create this type of course. I paid my dues to make life easier for entrepreneurs who are still in the early stages, and I want us all to succeed!


Why me?

I have been exactly where you are today—full of great clothing design ideas but not sure how to turn them into a viable business. But through firsthand experience, I discovered the best way to build a successful clothing brand. I started out with only $900 and operated out of the spare bedroom in my house. Over the past decade, my portfolio has grown from a single product (socks) to an entire line, including casual wear, activewear, wall art, bedding, travel accessories, and stationery. My company, Brick Built, is now run by a team of employees and contractors from my 10,000 sq. ft. warehouse or remotely.

Branded from Scratch is based on my real-life experiences that have shaped my business into the powerhouse it is today. Throughout this course, I highlight many of my pitfalls and struggles, so you can see an authentic view of what I went through on my journey. I show you exactly how I did it! I share my personal experiences to help you learn from my successes and mistakes. I feel that in this way, it can help inspire and motivate you by showing what is possible and how I overcame challenges.

 

To create this course, I didn’t have to source information from Google or watch a bunch of YouTube videos. My knowledge comes straight from my 10+ years of running a clothing business. My clothing company, Brick Built, is evidence that supports why I’m good at what I do, and this course will show you how I did it.

Yes, in most cases. I recommend consulting with a tax professional for more insight.
