I guess the title says it all, WOW, just WOW! I can't believe everything that has happened in the last nine months since we launched this company. As I am preparing to present to a large advisory board where questions will be asked of me, where are you now? where do you want to go? How do you plan to get there? As I ponder these questions in my head, I also reflect back on where I have been. The last year has been crazy and I mean crazy in a good way. We have launched a new product, we have 3 of the top 10 barrel racers currently in the world wearing our shirts ( one still in secret ) , we have sold all over the States, Canada, Germany and Australia,
We have had a name change ,we now have an office, a for real office, not a corner in my house beside the dinning room table.
How the heck did all this happen in 9 months? Well you did it, it was all the amazing support we have received, the feedback, the post shares, the word of mouth traffic, all of that came from you. I do not suppose I could say thank you enough, but our family is forever grateful to all of you.
So the name change, what the heck does M Sport 6 stand for ? well M=me, Sport is what we sell- athletic wear, and the 6 ? it stands for 6 degrees of separation , I believe we are all connected and we are all only 6 people away from knowing anyone in the world, Anyone! I also believe we are only 6 people away from who makes our clothing, that is why we work hard on staying connected to everyone involved with our product, from those that sew to those that buy,
As we move forward with this company, I come to see everything I do not know yet about fashion, I mean I am lucky to have matching socks on, but I do work hard at finding the right fabric, the right look and the right manufactures. Athletes come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, one of our best selling sizes is 3XL . I am actually surprised no one caters to plus sized athletes, I mean we all start somewhere right? We also have tons of fun with the designs, again I am not a designer, but I know what I like and just do it, if it is a fashion no no. oh well, maybe that is why what we do works, is we break the idea of what is fashionable and what is deemed athletic.
This fall we are launching our line of racer back, polo and T shirts, we are making them in our famous air-conditioned fabric but also in a new insulated fabric for winter ( feels like new fleece pj's, you never want to take them off )
I know that our athletic western shirts are doing well, no one makes them, we are the first, but when it comes to athletic tanks and T's, well heck everyone makes those, so how will we compete with all that? How do I get noticed in that area? not real sure yet, but I will find a way and am sure we will have help too, someone will believe in us and introduce us to the right people and the next thing you know we are
" Nike " big
So as I prep for my presentation, I am left in awe of how far we have come and am excited to see what is still yet to come.
Dream it, Believe it, Live it
