So you've heard a lot about our Hack-A-Thon (p.s. sign up here, just sayin') but you might be wondering about some things. #WHATTHEHECK aims to answer some of those questions that might be running through your mind.
So, let's talk about "Products made of fabric" and what the heck that means, like what kind of products we're talking about.
The immediate thought is "Oh, they're talking about FASHION products!". That kind of makes sense because fashion product are usually made of fabric but take a second and think about everything that you use on a daily basis that's also made of fabric.
We are talking about INNOVATIVE products! Let me give you some examples:
FuelWear - The World's First Intelligent Heated Clothing
There's no need for a fashion background... Just need an idea (for a product made of fabric obviously).
There's no need to be a designer... Just need to be passionate & solving problems with your ideas.
We are talking to Engineers, Scientists, MBA Graduates, Moms, Entrepreneurs.
All you need is a vision and determination to make something.
Are you one of those people? Do you have an idea for a product? Do you have vision & determination and want to make something? Join us at our Hack-A-Thon by signing up today!
Those of you following our posts from yesterday about our fantastic partner, Shopify (known for their eCommerce prowess) may be pretty psyched to get some AMAZING advice on how to make shit happen online. We wanted to take a second and focus on the person that will be the face of Shopify at our Hack-A-Thon, Hailey Coleman
Prior to assuming the role of Offline Marketing Specialist at Shopify, Hailey is the founder of Damn Heels, a line of fold-up ballerina flats tucked into a pouch that's small enough to pop into a clutch purse. This is a PERFECT example of someone with BIG ideas who was able to identify a need that wasn't being met, formulate a plan and make some big moves to MAKE SHIT HAPPEN!!!
Hailey embodies the MSH spirit, which is just one of the reasons we're so glad to have her join us at our Hack-A-Thon. She is a perfect example of what can be done by BEING OBSERVANT and THINKING BIG!
Just in case you missed it, Hailey will be one of the advisors at our Hack-A-Thon. She will be just one fantastic example of the kind of entrepreneurial muscle that you can have access to should you decide to join us on April 17th, 18th & 19th.
Tickets are on sale RIGHT NOW! Go here. Buy a ticket. Show up. Make Shit Happen!
This is for those dreamers. We love dreamers. Dreamers think big. What MSH does is it "Makes Shit Happen" (hence the title 'MSH'). We take dreamers and show them how to make their dream into a reality.
At our Hack-A-Thon, within 72 hours, we will take 20 startups (aka dreamers with big ideas) and provide them a very specific set of tools that will act as a launch pad to make those dreams into a reality.
Let me give you an example. Let's pick a specific fashion item. Let's say belts. Some people collect shoes, some people collect hats, you are an avid belt collector. That being said, as a belt aficionado, you simply CANNOT find a belt that you really, really love. Some people would simply just shrug their shoulders, say 'oh well' and go about their day. That's not you though, if you aren't satisfied, you figure out a way to find satisfaction!
You realize that "Hey, if I can't find a belt I really love, other people probably can't either, right?". Very good point, so what are you going to do about it? You start figuring out what your perfect belt is. You sketch it. You talk to your friends about belts. You are randomly talking to people on the bus about different belt styles throughout history (yes, you are unfortunately that person on the bus). You are OVERFLOWING with ideas about belts but you don't know where the hell to get your belt made and how to market this idea to dissatisfied belt-wearers out there.
Welcome to MSH and welcome to the Hack-A-Thon. You sign up. You show up on the first day with your arms overflowing with examples and drawings and samples you've collected. Then the magic happens
You get matched up with an advisor to help organize all your belt-related ideas
All your belt-related ideas transform into a sketch of what will be the prototype for your perfect belt
You get matched up with a designer and other experts that will ACTUALLY MAKE YOUR PERFECT BELT, RIGHT THERE!
You then sit down with your advisors again to figure out how to become the Grand Ruler of the belt empire you are on the verge of creating
That's it. That's the Hack-A-Thon. You are MAKING SHIT HAPPEN!! If you are ready to pull the trigger, take a kick at the can or some other metaphor to DOING SOMETHING instead of just talking about it, join us on April 17th, 18th & 19th by signing up right here.
Happy Thursday everyone! Meet our Founder & CEO of Making Shit Happen, Sheena Repath. Every Thursday we'll be posting vlogs (via our Youtube channel) all about MSH, Entrepreneurial advice and motivation on how YOU can MAKE SHIT HAPPEN!
