What do I get when I join The Shoe Community?
[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.
I really enjoyed the [How to Find a Shoe Manufacturer] masterclass. I saw the master class recording and could actually sit down and pause the video while I was taking notes so I don’t miss anything. I couldn’t have ever guessed that this was Susannah’s first masterclass ! She’s such a pro ! I also loved that instead of a powerpoint or ‘brush over the top’ kind of masterclass, this was a conversation. Marion was the perfect candidate for this topic. In some of the other masterclasses out there, guest speakers are only talking about how much of a struggle it was to get to where they are right now. Marion on the other hand gives us a different story of how to move forward after the recognition starts to build up, which is a topic fairly untouched by a lot of speakers and even schools ! I got a lot of real life situation pointers, and it was really good and detailed. Can’t wait to attend more masterclasses by you.
