1. Entrepreneurship is really, really, really hard.
We send emails late at night, we pour our personal savings into the business, we "hop on calls" with countless people who might be interested in investing, we find odd jobs to pay rent, and we constantly wonder if we're one minor catastrophe from going bankrupt. What we have learned, though, are that the highs are really high and you keep chasing success and ultimately believe that you're changing the world.
Here's one of the best days of our lives (and hopefully yours too!) when we were live on KTLA in Los Angeles. We're still basking in that one.
2. Consumer feedback is everything.
I once woke up to a customer that had found my personal cell phone number in my mobile signature and had decided to call me at 7AM. I took the call. When you're a small company, every critical piece of feedback stings, but also pushes you to think differently about what you're doing and if there's anything you can do to fix it.
Positive feedback is truly game changing for us. In fact, we just got this a couple weeks ago and are still having wonderful dreams because of it.
We also LOVE reviews. Like really love them. You can review us on Facebook here or you can also review us on Amazon after buying a pair here!
