So many of you as a business owner, you get these ideas in your head and it is incredible to get to watch them come to fruition, and I started dreaming about one of our most popular products thus start today journal. I served dreaming about this a couple of years ago. I had been doing this daily practice based on several different people. I had heard about several different things and I'm gonna put them together into one daily practice, which was every single day. I wrote down the dreams I had for my life, but I wrote them as if they had already happened. There's something really powerful about claiming a goal as if it's already done, and I rode down every day- and it was how I set my intentions and then I would post about it on social and so many people. What are you doing? What is that? Where do I get that journal nose like guys? It's not a journal, it's just a notebook, I'm just riding down the same thing every single day, but what I think is interesting, as business owners or creators is often times. In fact, most of the time, your audience will tell you what it wants from you and I kept pushing it off because I was like you guys. This is not a big deal, but it was, and people kept asking for, and I finally just thought what, if I turn this into a product and I started to dream and plan- and I literally taped pictures to the wall of my office, of what I dreamed that my journal would look like and the intention behind it, and I wanted the covers to be really pretty, and I wanted it to be something that you could do once a quarter and then, as you completed, each journal you'd have a stack of this evidence of how intentional you were about your life and we figured it out, and I mean you know some times we messed up on the shipping and sometimes we rest up on the interior, but we failed our way to where we are today, which is the start today journal in the hands of hundreds of thousands of people. So incredible such a blessing for me to be able to go on Instagram and see hashtag start today journal and see people all over the world using this practice as a way to aim

Meccans company Lily Jake Lily Jade produces.
Most amazing, gorgeous leather diaper bags that are so pretty. I actually carry one as a purse. If you have never heard her story, you're gonna be so inspired, not only by what she's built, but by who she is. I can't wait for you to hear and be sure and checking on Instagram and tag me and TAT Lily, jade and let us know what you think of today's opposite. So for people who are not familiar with you already Megan. Will you tell us what you do? for a job and how you got to this place. Rachel crystalline islamist eating. Yes, I am in negative way in Icu founded the brie ends Lily Jade, with my husband Linden, who was my uncle. We hardly the myriad eighteen years at you. Many ladys that I'm raising an that's kind of way brought me,
you did I per back space, I am a mom, I never you know, even if I Rebecca love my to myself, never thought to myself like I should make my own. So what was it that gave you equally the courage to step into a space you weren't super familiar with some. Even before I had children- before I had children, I had a laugh. Were he and banks in was an outside seals for almost six years reenact six years before I had my first daughter you're lying I sold like everything. Eyes saw interior. Design contracts to worker has. With Iceland Cork ran industrial uniforms. Deckard dealerships tell you name it. I sold off supplies to corporate accounts. Paper is very competitive. Let me just say I had no idea. I I had no idea and
I was always meeting with the ultimate decision maker and so feeling like I having nice handbag and for those of you you ve been outside seals are directs the Elles. You know uniform, work, personal here it matters and how you present yourself for sound it's a great pierce use or that perfect poppy hearing that makes you feel funny dressed for the Danes myself. It was always a nice him back and I thought I'm ready for the day. I can go into this meeting and do it. I need today and so, when I have First daughter, really and truly the very first thing I looked for and my husband, alas, it as well and I was there, I ain't, gonna handling the most amazing handbag as a man might be just just get Harry all the things I need the Merry Poppins diaper bags. I found just printed material
and things that were not in my my love There was a lot of stuff I feel like, because we both have eleven year olds. There was a lot of stuff around that time, like I think, of Petunia Pickle bottom, yet, which was so popular everybody loved it. That definitely wasn't my style. It was a little too ornate for me, though I know what you're talking about there wasn't a time out in the market at that time and so what I found myself doing after going through several designer just diaper guys every price range it was a joke within my family, like meccans testing out any that I am in overcame her brochure. Nothing seemed to workers that when I ended up doing, I was going to you marshals and teaching acts and purchasing the largest leather totes that I could find they were.
Maybe they were great on the shoulder, but they didn't convert into that pact, which is a necessity navy. They were gone. In size than they were too floppy any caved in on itself. I was constantly reinventing my process inside of my back, I'm very organised by nature created this tax system that I love you. I love you. I remember this is like a game. I pleaded the tax system and I even my label them. I had rightly sizes the gallons, the ports, the snacks embassy in which is, and so they each have their own purpose, and while I was in my the corporate sales world when I had my oldest I still had a part time jobs and at our church in so we were that college in India. Professional meters. It was wonderful, great season, I would pass off. You know little Caroline,
and my entire is the fact that system, and so my mom said graciously followed, follow vertical misapplied then, from there I went on in a had not aligned. Re second daughter- and I remember that all homo meant for me again I have zero design background. I my major was communications and journalists. The minor english literature. So the idea, and I had street- I hate to admit that, but I can't so this. Idea. Then I'm gonna go now throw myself into the world of lethargy programs like humorous yeah, meaning and so many levels. My second daughter matter line at the time was six or eight months old. And I was meeting my mother in law for lunch and I sat down in a restaurant and I was carrying a leather, in back and then another bank that had the floppy hatred
however, in a blink again and you all a big bautista- and I am I literally the words out of my mouth were how to be a better way like we had a design like I'm going to design a back one day. That does all the things and it's going to look beautiful while doing all the things you think you are lines but from me I had to sit on that idea because it requires capital and fires on time time as a whole each commodity in all of these things, and none of which, in the season of life did I have I kept. For the first from that moment. So, like the next few years, I will talk about it with land in quite a bit and say had this idea. It's not leaving. I dont know how to do it and at the time he was in here.
The part of a star in the biomedical space is the small start up with a partner in name. On that Canada edges being able to say that there was no guarantees as China with anything and then, when she do so small, a small business, then do you take your caution all into another. Since I mean it's just like where, after risk after risk after us anything, and so we sat on this idea for for a couple of years yet and to actually do something with it so so here is always my question will, first of all, so you sit on it for a couple years. When you finally decide ok, we're we're gonna go for it, we're in a trial, run and develop a prototype or whatever it is that you do in this process. What year is this when you decide to go for this? Is my twin, twelve. So we had ok air behind the scenes, factory low, new, locating factory protest. Learning how to speak the basque language,
and finally, we knew nothing about mother. I mean nothin about yeah, so I I think, as someone who for the last six months me in a couple members of our team for the first time trying to develop product in a few different categories that we feel really passionately about. This is no joke this? Is so now I know for a fact that people can figure it out. Because clearly so many have, but I think those listeners, hoo hoo, maybe dont grasp what this means. I want to x breast. How difficult it Is this step into a space like this with so many moving? so many components, so many things to figure it out not to who am discouraged listeners from trying to do something but to understand you? Can take on really daunting things. You can try really big stuff, even when you're not really sure how you're gonna get
the other end of it. So I would love to hear how did you get from, however, going to, This thing to we actually have a back yeah yeah, Yeah you're right, it is Don T, let it internally me I think that the first step for us was to get the bag on paper and get your get my idea on paper, and that was just between land. In an eye and a slightly I wanted to convert the backpack, I want the best quality of leather. You kind of right out your wish list if you create a hot act, Why would you want to do? What bears the innovative factor? Is there a portion of it? That's patentable? What does that look like Let's go down that road. A little back so you're here did spend just a good tanker time figuring. My very first step it. You know, talk about? I contacted go on at sea in sheep. A sewer I said I had happened,
idea and nice somewhere and Why are you so? What's my card for paper Ah, wait, and I think you don't have a pattern but I take a picture of my hard words sketch in guinea dimensions and drawings, but I need a slower and she was like oh right, sounds like what material and she was in Louisiana and I was like the scenery and we spoke on the phone several times and I did my car, for staff and show you some pictures of when I was talking about and she created and of our first little prototype, which looks and Suddenly, nothing like any of our backs so sure of course it arrived and we were like yeah, that's not gonna were that might ere. She did great.
She follow instructions, but I to learn the design language, so people became a really good friend and I learned at the sight of a bank is called gas it and if you're gonna talk to her, factory, and they ask you gonna, guess it is here that a society in a leather bag? so ok. There's two really great points in that story that I want to touch on four listeners. Wine is the idea of figuring it out. I this is. This is my career, a million billion per cent. Is we- taken on so many things that we have not known what the heck we are doing and I feel I give you as a listener find yourself in a place like I want to build X y see, but I dont know how Ask yourself better questions if you're not getting to the answer that you need or the solution or you're, not moving forward you're not asking the right questions instead of Megan saying like
I don't know how to design a bag you, really tactical and said: okay, if I'm gonna have a prototype, why will I need well, I need someone to make it ok, how Who could possibly do that for me well summoned to that knows how to so. Ok, we'll. How can I find someone who knows how to so? Well, I could go on Etsy and reach out and see if they could do it. For me, I think of it With my own career, like when we first got the very first time I've got a book deal to do a cookbook. It was like what golly. We don't know how to do a cookbook. What am I gonna need? Well need someone who can take who can make food It looks pretty and take pretty pictures of it. I can cook you dinner and it'll be delicious, but I dont know how to do those things so by just king down, like a war is the result. You want ok the other thing that I love from that story,
other thing that I love from that story is that your first attempt because nobody does yeah today, because nobody's does yeah into a podcast this morning, where they were talking about. It's like a south golden quote, is ship, it just ship it meaning like just get your product together, just get something just get it into the marketplace because You are never ever gonna have a business if it to be perfect in order for you to put it into the world right there, It's true and you wouldn't have known that you're that you're the thing that you were envisioning in your head, like you needed to see the ban. Prototype, you know what you re. Absolutely! No, so you get you your prototype, where you get it to a place where you're gonna go deal with factories. Now
You have a factory, that's in another country I felt we ve talked about. This gives you travel quite a bit and we first started off manufacturing in the? U S still are leather came from New York and then we need new factors are first line ever in New York and all week four were. I think our order was too bad times three colours and we had a few in the red we started manufacturing in New York, and we did I mean just as many we were stretching our dollar to get as many banks, as you have liked, the behind the behind the scenes TAT, the nobody sees witches. You build your web site. You know yeah and cast you and marketing, and probably in your brand, for your lunch and all the things, and so it's kind of the invisible work that is those unseen than it really is is vital and important, and so our first production man, was in Europe, are second production run, was in New York and then through pretty pretty quickly
and so we realized ok at this price point, it's not sustainable. The bags were considerably more answer me switch to a factory in China and really have been honoured to be able to do business there in the season and then really pleased with production. How many bags like? Are you, starting with like twenty thousand new offers protection ran with maybe under five hundred million in the public eye, hey exact number he occur. He manages the when I come girl, I'm at where I'm about to be in the same exact fourteen Merritt? I am here for it yet so she manages like logistics he locates like factories me he is a wealth business, knowledge and e commerce, knowledge and finding out how to do that thing.

Our personalities are vastly different. Just the other night he's like hey baby, I'm gonna, be in my office some you in your mind and I paid the source- can serve as just to take another iq test. Just make sure I'm sure minded move. My guys, the mine will simply be weakened. I'm over here, like when the people I level that created the driver is now, and you feel this is great, I just went to hug all the money. You know we could not mere clearing to totally different veins of our brand, and so it really works. I'm sure really works really one as it, but that's I am now do you. I know that you start this way may be star, you guys entirely selling,
e commerce. Are you in stores? You know? Commerce, that's been our whole business model from the began looking, and we said I feel goals, I'm here before so I know my kind of career path is like outside sales kind of selling I'll find the thieves, hustler and you know it before we even like selling J, there were some things that I physically down, in a really worked into those things. So at the time I was school full time homes pulling mom. So it was like clear now I'd seals, then works and part time step at the church, then the whole school? time. My all the daughter for three years it was doing See then that we want. Lily Jade and so If any commerce near we, we sat down and said we want to be able to provide a high,
quality of good at a very each of us, manageable price. Our backs are still costly, that they have liner and detailing in pockets and panels you know. You ass tens leather and we really wanted to be able to we'll bury your warranty, and so we have a list of life. We want to provide an incredible products at an obtainable price and great value we also over here on this, I wanted to keep some of their the values in our feeling that were priority in my take, our kids to travel without some business and kind of inner incorporate them as much as we can the brain and so ok, that's a great insight for me honestly, haven't really ever cloaked for me in terms of people who stay just with E commerce, is that you are able to
retain a larger margin of the product that you're selling, because you're not having to split it with a store. Is that yes ask? Is that the great? So in her to make, because that this is this makes a ton of sense cause. I have friends who are in retail, and we talked about bags before, and the things that I have always heard about bags is its like such a lower margin in comparison with, let's say: jewelry aren T shirt, okay, so that makes a ton of by great Britain sense to make, as I have wondered, that about young, if you guys have never seen a lower j back, their gorgeous and you're gonna want one. Even if you don't have kids, I think that's like that. The first time I ever saw one Our mutual friend general maker, like handed over her shoulder as persons and her youngest child at the time would be like ten no. No. No, it's just a really good bag and I think that's what's so great about the product is it is diaper bag, but looks like a purse
so you can really easily transition it. In fact, I'll you. I have never once carried mellow a J bag as it I Purbeck, never one time I we can say that the press, unlike this, is for me it's all like here, and so am I ain't yon times I take the answer. Now? sometimes I use it sometimes I take it now. You have packing here is now organizing packing cases and that are amazing inside his those quite often and I mean it's wait for packing in Us- kids now packing cases organised so excited by the way. Maybe that's why it can set our cause. Be life. Changing Oliver yeah, but I have wondered why all are not in store because it's their such great bags and I'm always like why then Nord Storms wire then, but now that makes absolute sense to me in a way I didn't understand see. This is the kind of sad that you have to figure out when you're, you know
you don't know before you start. That makes so much better say yeah, so you start like when you get? Let's say your third production run? Where you're you have a larger. I'm sure this is a much larger order, and now gonna, sell what you ve got. Did you and ask them questions, because this is just I don't know the answer. I am very curious. Did you you you a ship them yourselves. You carry inventory you like. How did you navigate that redoing? Like I did you use? It party. Initially we sit them ourselves. Early on and we will have the bag ship to ask them, We would do you like quality control inspection. Remember big protection ran manner. First, big production run from overseas arrived, and- I'm in a mass year, eighteen wheeler kind of thing, and at the time our driveway.

He ends, you see in our banks, the girl revolved in. We pull the men now their ages, twelve and nine. On Sunday, nonaligned will be nine back Caroline remembers life before Lily J Nonaligned, it's just it's just wet and what we do we learned early on like within the first year, the union that we needed a three PR third party logistics and now Oliver guys I'm.

Think so much I'm so like I'm. So I'm sure I can't be the only one like I'm sure people listening to this, I find it so inspiring bs. Of hard work. It takes to go, that first in a production run of less than five hundred and heap scaling, keep growing dang How many so from France like ok, I'm just about this journey. You get that that first order at the house, get that out the door. Now how many more years, until where we are today a cow. The girl was that Rina half years ago, that's insane that is, in saying that wild Rhine mean one that debt
currently in ever good way? I mean when we launched the Lily Jade if my own mental safeguard, I would tell me in, and we know that ban if we however money into the life doesn't go? I can, just me and ancient like a little part time, jobs, at that time. Like you know, you could get like work for another corporation and are doing different start up or whenever, but like I could just. I can mean and so many banks a day and he was a boy in our cause, you you know you push, you push, go live online tenure website any just kind of way in your like anyone else. Please I told my reason. No, yes, it everybody! Now I shared it on my personal facebook page shouldn't we generating, but is it to bigger the nine and took a little work effort than that that I am
indefinitely. We have then overjoyed by and by the success during last year. What do you think, You guys dead, real, well wish maybe you're selling a product through e commerce. You have to know how to use social media in order to sell something. So are there are a couple of things that you feel like either you- threw it out along the way or that you did from the start that we're just really you know, was it partnering with influencers or like what we're things, if someone's listening to this, that they might be able to apply to their business and for us this partnership with influencers for sure at it ends. You know We were very limited marketing budget and our banks cost us a lot of money at the time slain in their meat? In the? U S and south, it was one of those things, because that was new to us and our experience in that was brand new. This idea
that we ship is very expensive by an influenza and hoping that they're gonna talk about or say something great, really love. It was a huge risk. I agree and buy it paid off, early on? That is where we spend our time in our effort to We are greatest risk in shipping product out to people we ve never met and ass. It was a really big. He'll, especially on a very limited protection, run that's great and over the time of an answer now we have like our ambassadors, and you have flew answers and everything in between and as time. It's gone. I need that smart or replace the guides and instagram in that kind of thing, and that, for sure out of the gate, was influencers you are someone who I feel like As long as I've known you unknown, the brand you at least from an outsource perspective. I feel like you,
always understood the parents to ram me who are they something that Ya'Ll. I feel I get that so few people guy and I just wanna- beat it for your heads as listeners. It's when I am asked to consult on social media for different brands. I just want to say over and over again you are not selling a product. You are selling the lifestyle that that product fits inside out and You guys are not. If you go on and you should follow a jade uninspiring cause, it's so q if you go on your instagram feed, you're selling, a lifestyle whom this is what this Type of man looks like this is the branding that makes sense. This is she stylish, she's aspirational, you get that and so few brands to that. Similarly for anybody who selling a product that isn't inaction says, I mean this is this: is an investment that you're making in the great thing I think about your? Is you can get a bad
that you use a diaper bag and have it for ever and ever a man, but I think it's a good. That someday. You guys have really understood and as an ambulance, Sir myself, like back when we first got to each other, the person I do and brands reach out to me, and this is a piece of advice for anybody listening who you love, pagans idea about in getting some some influencers to collaborate with you. First thing that I do and someone reaches out as I go look at your feet and if it doesn't align with my. Feed and I don't mean that an obnoxious way doesn't have to be the same like produce photos, but if you're not taking your branding seriously? Well, we can't nor with you, because we really care about the visual of anything that we send out into the world. So it just worth saying. I think that some of the other really well
an instruments I think they're killing over there. Thank you all. Migration, in the last. You know you ve had a pretty. I dont want to say fast ride, because I feel like that's not fair, for how much work has gone into the last you know you ve had a pretty. I don't. Say fast ride, because I feel like that's not fair, for how much work has gone into it, but I feel you have really grown and scaled a time and a bunch of success, pretty clean are ever times in that journey, where its overwhelming, or you felt like. Oh I, can't handle this where this is going quicker than I thought it would a were, where the how fast you got into this place has ever felt. You know not great, yeah. I love that question. It's one slash that took me a while, if I'm just completely honest the vulnerable place to talk,
but I feel like an whence. I started having this dialogue around other on, yours and mine, for new, whereas I found there we did this feeling was not out of the ordinary but I'm I refer to it as having the poser mentality. So for me I thought I would be the next Kelly Rebecca I went, I would have loved you now New York and my major communications in reviewing and I'm I just want, her and by us he's so fine and how exciting that would be like the dream of altering its. So when I was kind of pushed into this or walked into this space, I'm litter, looks like the first two years I was like I like, he had story, I'm not a slower. I don't have
the knowledge I felt like I needed and I felt like I was constantly trying to play catch up. That's not a bad thing. It is I'm not necessarily like a book reader, but I'm a figure an outer I'm wearing. I love love, love reports. I like I enjoy that the process is figuring out. How I looked to pick up. The phone calls, someone who doesn't way better than I do. You can do it better than I do that being thrown not even just the design space, but also in the luxury space. I mean I landed, I'm a joke about like we're, not fashioned east as like we're just not like. I will affect the homes going mom and I was disqualifying myself consistently. I'm just a mama, I'm homespun mom. You know my fiancee enough. I'm not a designer, but I I really was I really times you years ago. I don't know if you ve ever
you've ever felt bad. I known your your bookie text on it a bit and that it's the chapter about smaller you need to be smaller. I was like, oh, I can't identify with aspects of that thing he might make you know Do you know what you're doing it out? I think the answer is here. I didn't know what I was doing, that I figured it out and I kept daddy have working towards it lie of not feeling like we're enough in any area of our life, not a good enough mom, not a good enough. Why have not been enough not pretty enough enough? Whatever the answer? To that is grounding, grounding yourself in some truth. That makes that obsolete right so you and I both have the same.
