WHAT HAS BEEN THE BEST PART OF THE TRIP SO FAR?
I think it would be the tremendous growth I’ve seen in myself – mentally, emotionally, and spiritually – over the past two or three years.
Another would have to develop a sense of self-awareness – to catch me before I fell into a limiting self-confidence mindset, and be able to turn that narrative around and look at it in a positive light. It’s really true when they say, “Your thoughts become your reality.” First you have to know deep inside that what you are doing is good and should exist in this world. If you do, you are already setting yourself up for success.
ARE YOU A ONE-MAN SHOW OR DO YOU HAVE A TEAM AROUND YOU?
I am currently a solo entrepreneur but am also looking for a partner who understands and resonates with my vision, and who can help me with the operational side of the business. At the moment, I have a small team of advisors, entrepreneurs and part-time assistants who help me manage various aspects of the business, from social media and digital marketing to finance and accounting.
DO YOU HAVE A HERO PRODUCT OR BEST SELLER TO DATE?
Our best seller so far has been our Keep the Fire Burning (or “KTFB”) t-shirts and tank tops made from bamboo fabric. Customers have unanimously mentioned how exceptionally comfortable and cool the fabric is – and how well it works for warmer climates like Singapore.
Our Odell Waxed Cotton Rise Dropped Armhole Tank also sold well. Wearers love the soft, cool feel of glazed cotton and are not only drawn to the cool colors it comes in – dusty pink and cool mint – but also the dropped armhole cut which is perfect for yoga practitioners. and movement.
