In 2009 I launched my first business. It was a clothing company that we ran for 4 years. In that time, we were partnered with two charities and ended up setting up Canadian manufacturing. It was a lot of fun building a brand and team. Since I started there have been many people who have approached me asking my advice on starting their own brand. I thought it might be interesting to write a little bit about the universal advice I would give to someone who decides they want to try and build a clothing brand to sell on ecommerce.
One month ago I had my first full-time employee start at Renga. Our team is growing and I am both incredibly excited and a little nervous. The stakes seem higher, but it’s right where I know that I need to be.
Today I had the feeling of anxiety from digital clutter, not necessarily to scary full desktop with zero organization, but rather the way that certain processes happen and all the tools I need to run through.
