I'm 24 years old and am currently based 20-30 min outside of Boston, MA. I am currently looking to relocate closer to the city itself, while also entertaining a more substantial move out of state (potentially to West Coast) - both of which are dependent on whether I am able to find a like minded individual to co-run and grow my start up business.
I currently sell a product which I designed from the ground up myself for e-commerce sales. It was a proof of concept to see if I could put all the parts together - material sourcing, design, prototyping, marketing / brand aesthetics, product image creation, packaging, customer service, and the list goes on.
I've 10xed my initial humble goal for the # of units I would need to sell to consider this "proof of concept" product idea a success.
I have also learned I can't do everything myself - after working around the clock to do so over the last 9 months or so.
I've recently considered putting the project on hold and making some more broad life changes (moving, taking on part time 'conventional' office work, just for the purpose of stability and networking. As of today, I was informed that the trademark for my brand will be approved on October, 29th.
This mark will substantially facilitate my ability to sell this product (and other like products under the same trademark) on popular online market places, in physical walk-in stores, and any other relevant venues where consumer goods are sold.
In short, looking for someone who is good at and enjoys picking up new areas of knowledge and skill sets, to the point of fluency. Ex. Someone who wouldn't shy away from changing their oil or engine air filter for the first time by using online guides; teaching themselves guitar; or other examples that showcase similar self-teaching.
I will end this overview here for the purpose of brevity. Of course, the actual material details of this business and product will be discussed with anyone who reaches out to me, but for this stage, these broad categories of traits / life goals / skill sets should speak to those who possess them.
Write to firstname.lastname@example.org and reference this add / posting - I will be very enthusiastic to hear from any / everyone and look forward to sharing my work and seeing if it can become our work.
