When we last left off, we had just fulfilled the order from Border’s. It was an incredible experience and I was so grateful to learn so much in such a short time.
The following July (2008), I rented and shared a space in back of a friend’s bath & body company. I truly needed to move my “Klean” operations out of my apartment into a real space. We were only online at this point and had lots of wholesale business.
Here’s the thing. Do you know how it is to have a roommate that you don’t know? This experience taught me a lot about that. You move in with someone you barely know and have growing pains, except in this situation, they never ended. I got to learn so much about what I didn’t want, how to deal with challenging personalities (and I don’t mean my own) and eventually learning to make a change. After exactly one year, I removed myself from the situation.
