When You Are Collective was first created, it was an idea to empower others going through mental health and illness challenges. A way to remember we are all STRONG and BRAVE regardless of what we're going through and that maybe the reminder of that could impact someone. So we forged ahead!
At the time of our launch, there were not a ton of eco-friendly shipping choices. Actually, let me rephrase that. There were not many completely environmentally friendly and sustainable companies offering completely environmentally friendly and sustainable products.
Quarter three was a BIG one for personal growth, networking and learning. Cliche I know, but it's true. We rocked into our third quarter thinking we'd be well on our way to talking with local retailers and starting to make that merch flow, we were pumped about our SPRING/SUMMER Collection and prepared to be in all the markets showcasing our movement.
We also met some fabulous new people, and have been focusing on laying the groundwork and foundation when it comes to running a business. Although the making money and donating 10% of it is amazing, creating the relationships and partnerships in the meantime has been by far the most rewarding
