I have been so impressed with all the information available on your Facebook group [The Shoe Community private group]. I can’t wait to get through all of the videos. It has been really insightful already!

You have made a process which at first seemed sooooo unachievable a reality and allowed me to see it to fruition and I am only half way there. I can’t thank you enough and I wish for you to keep up the amazing work you are doing.

[on The Shoe Community masterclasses] Really interesting to hear from successful shoe founders and it’s made interactive even if you cannot make it live.
[on the ‘How Much Does it Cost to Start a Shoe Brand?’ masterclass] I got down about three pages of notes so it was definitely very very useful! It was great to hear from you both and I logged out feeling very inspired!
[on the ‘How Much Does it Cost to Start a Shoe Brand?’ masterclass] All very interesting. Thanks again for a very insightful presentation.
[on the ‘How Much Does it Cost to Start a Shoe Brand?’ masterclass] Enjoyed watching this. Great that Andrea was so open about costs/challenges she faced. Nice summary checklist – reminded me about legal fees! Thanks for sharing!
The masterclass was great and it was a good way for me to understand the level of investment involved. The class gave me the perspective I needed to understand what is involved and the steps and commitment required to launch a shoe brand.
Thank you so much Susannah…the masterclass with Andrea was so insightful!! I have come away feeling inspired & invigorated to keeping pushing forward with my start up!
I found the masterclass so helpful and insightful. Thanks so much for answering my question.
Susannah’s [How to Find a Shoe Manufacturer] class was everything I expected it to be – thorough and insightful. I loved that talented and accomplished designer Marion Ayonote was tapped to be a part of the conversation to detail her experience with finding and working with manufacturers, specifically as a designer, without a sourcing agent. Susannah gave great input and, honestly, helped me consider solutions that I hadn’t before. It was all very eye-opening. As someone who is building a brand, I find Susannah’s knowledge priceless and look forward to the next class.
