Takeaways:

  • We've always really had this passion deep inside of us. And this is just a way to kind of make a larger impact through the work that we're doing with the Harbor.
  • Sometimes there are no massive, big wins. There is just grinding, grinding it out. Great little decisions that at the end of the day, lead to a big business
  • If you treat a customer well and you have a great product, they'll keep coming back.
  • It got crazy. At one point, we were sending up to 500 to 1,000 orders per day from our parents' garage.
  • We'd been so passionate about this from the beginning, and that passion is what drives you to make time to see the vision through.
  • In the first four years of the company, we did over 500 trunk shows. We traveled up and down the east coast, going to small beach towns, talking to everyone and anyone who would hear our story and touch and feel our product.
  • Our mission statement in a nutshell is to create products for people that make it so they can enjoy the home that they love.
