Almost two year ago, before launching the pilot @boxofintimates
, I accepted to partner up with two investors-advocate-of-women-supporting-women as investors to start @boxofintimates.
After two months working together they took all my work, strategy & processes to reproduce the very same business before I officially launch the BOI's pilot. I took a hit, but instead, I decided to focus on making strides on my own whilst acknowledging copy and theft as a proof of concept.
Now, just over four months ago, I made the move [again] to the other side of the Atlantic to allow my new venture to grow. Success in the US market has come relatively quickly, but the road has often been lonely, and the numbers of hours: beyond countless and, it never seem to be enough.
Despite the challenges, I do feel blessed to be part of something bigger than me, to have a business that creates happiness and excitement not just for myself, but for many others and more to come.
Thanks to everyone who has played a part in this journey. Let's keep writing each chapter day by day and cheers to strong beginnings.
