So in the very beginning, it was just an idea, not a cohesive thought. Frankly, it was kind of dumb since I certainly didn’t know anything about making drink mix.
I met this company at a convention and I went home and rushed immediately to call Ben and reiterated the whole thing. Bam the idea of Bloomers was born.
We named Bloomers as a joke after my nickname for underwear. My mom always said wear clean Bloomers. I didn’t realize she would be gone a few weeks later and how much that name would mean to me.
We began driving to Lake Mary to met them. We got lost like fifty times and I ended up having to pee on the side of the road.
They got us lunch and I’m a little freaky about food. They told us there was a great deli. I laughed the whole way home that only Jews knew what a great deli was.
From there we started making drink mix. We went back and forth and Ben did contracts since he was the lawyer after all.
We finally got test bottles and there was a whole lot of laughing and celebrating. Now off to sell it.
In the meantime, My ex-partner and I started to have some drama caused by the hiring of a guy named Dave.
Stay tuned because this is really what it’s like to start a business. I want you not to just know the pretty stuff but all the pain and hurt that can happen. Mostly I want you to learn to believe in yourself. You are The one person you can take to the bank.
