We know all podcasters will tell you, ‘this is an episode not to be missed’, but in this case, it really is true.
Lauren Derrett, Founder and Leader of @wearemoutpads, the reusable period pad brand, talked us through her incredible growth this year. It is so brutally honest and funny, it really is one for any business owner looking for inspiration:
Lauren chatted about:
🌵How long it took from initial idea, how to source suppliers, the importance of strong design, the rounds of product testing and how the product was launched.
🌵How long before the product was ready was a buzz created and pre-orders taken.
🌵Why you need to be brave to invest, especially when you go all-in with your personal savings.
🌵How to outsource the shit you hate and how to track the return on the investment of hiring in the pros.
🌵Why personal connection is so important when growing your business.
🌵Understanding when saying no in your business is the key to sustainable growth.
