My best friend and I have read Collective Hub from its inception. We were climbing the corporate ladder and knew we had the passion and skills to start our own business. We were tired of reporting to someone else who cared just about the numbers, and daydreamed about taking our passion and skills and building a brand ourselves. Collective Hub was our motivation – reading stories on others starting up – the highs, the lows, the buzz and excitement it brought. The year 2014 was the year we stopped dreaming and made it a reality. From eight flights in 11 days sourcing suppliers, to re-sourcing our packaging one month before launch – you name it, we worked through it! Your article on Jodie Fox from Shoes of Prey really resonated with us: ‘Do everything before you’re ready.’ Instead of worrying about the million reasons why we weren’t ready to launch, we remembered this article and realised there is never a perfect time, so just go for it!
