first hand account

Posted in links by verbalcroquis on October 27, 2006

So I’m finally catching up with my bajillionmillion blogs, and I came across this post on I Will Teach You To Be Rich, a very interesting personal finance and entrepeneurship blog. So interesting, that it’s the only blog of its kind that I read. The writer is a 20-something Bay Area entrepeneur and he has a series called “Friday Entrepeneurs”–basically an interview with a different ordinary Joe who had the brass to start his own venture every Friday. These interviews are conducted with people from all different industries. The post is from last month (did I mention I sub to a bajillionmillion feeds?), but I thought it was worth sharing as it’s a personal first hand account of a woman who started her own apparel manufacturing company in L.A. Click here to read.  Not to sound too hippiedippie, but I find the series rather inspiring.

    The interview was great and very inspiring. I’m always on the look out for different perspectives on what starting a business (specifically a clothing line) entails. Good lookin’ out.

  2. so interesting that you blogged about entrepreneurism today – its my current obsession. i bought several books on it today, and i am trying to get a pro bono assignment helping someone incorporate at work… i am determined to learn more about start ups and what people such as myself can do to assist them… I’m also retooling the Stereoette project to be more of an exercise in such things. Its all very exciting. I am a nerd for the learnin’.

    I’m feeling envious that this woman got her company up and running so quickly. I started my whole process 4 years ago and hopefully I will have product to sell at trunk shows in February. I think it’s a lot easier when you live in L.A. for all of the resources at your fingertips, like lots of contractors. But I wish she would have addressed the whole money thing. She made it sound so easy, in MHO. But it sounds like she didn’t have to do the day job to fund the start-up.
