So obviously, if you’ve made it this far you know who we are and what we’re about; but how did we get here? Contrary to popular belief it didn’t just appear and was beautiful; and no, Kailey and I didn’t aspire to be entrepreneurs. Instead, we’re two students who love local goods and love people and progress.
This blog will comprise our journey of where we’ve been and where we’re going. Every step of the way, you will be involved and have our feelings and experiences to reflect on via this blog. If you’re starting your own business, use this and learn from our mistakes. If you’re looking to sell goods in our store, use this to see who we are and look for your products. If you’re a community member, use this to see where your products come from and how your favorite brand came to be.
Keep in mind, this business is being started by a 19 and 20-year-old who are full-time students with minimal capital (by minimal I mean none lol). I say that partially to gain pity and you come buy our product, but mostly to encourage you that this is possible for anyone. You don’t have to have a business degree with a large-scale investor; all you need is a passion, a plan, and a good friends to stand by you and support you through this journey.
This is just the beginning of so many things; this blog, this brand, and this adventure. Our lives are about to change and you’re a part of that. Sonder includes you, and I have to say, that excites me more than anything.
