I read the whole thing, and I found it extremely interesting. Thank you for such an in depth look into this massive failure! It seems like the takeaway is to be very, very careful not to bite off more than you can chew. A classic case of overpromise, underdeliver.
Nice. I read Refinery29 frequently, so this was interesting to me. I love reading behind-the-scenes interviews with successful brands, it makes me feel like things are more do-able.
Aweeee this made me smile! My husband is a yoga teacher and he’s super flexible. I’ve been practicing for a few years and I’m still so inflexible compared to him. It’s embarrassing because the girl is supposed to be the one who can do an effortless side splits, not the guy! Nevermind that he’s been working hard at it for 16 years, lol. But seriously, this was very encouraging. Thank you!
Hehe! This article made me giggle. My husband is a yoga teacher and we get quite a few men in his class. I think they like the intense workout and it feels good to learn from a guy, so they don’t feel awkward like you described! I can imagine it would take some nerve to be the only guy in class! I’m glad you did it. :)
Oh man, this is such a great article. Thanks so much for providing examples of how this worked for you! “It never hurts to ask” is something you always hear, yet it’s still difficult to put yourself out there. However, when marketing a small business, you have to take risks to get your name out there. And, I’ve found that people are more often than not willing to help you out.
This is super inspiring even though your business is in a totally different field that mine. It’s nice to know that a 2 person team can do so much! Thanks for sharing your information about how you’ve made it work.
