  • We are officially 3! (and phew, we are still here!)

    Screen-Shot-2015-11-17-at-7.11.39-AM

    WOW – we’ve come a long way from that! 🙂

    Well, every year on November 17th and 18th, I frantically look back on Facebook and take a tour down memory lane…. And I cry. LOL. Yes I’m crying… It’s officially been 3 years since I started selling these tanks, and although this has been a rollercoaster of time, I wouldn’t change anything for the world. This company was meant to be here, this company was meant to make a difference, and this company is going to keep doing it until I die probably haha. Maybe after that, my kids will take it over, and I will have hopefully taught them all the things that you have taught me. I’ve grown a LOT over the last three years, and sure, they say small business will do that to you, but I’m not talking about growing in my business experience, I’m talking about growing as a human being.

    IMG_6331You guys have been through the biggest times in my life with me…. Making sure I stayed on track to get healthy for my wedding day. Having our back when Marshawn Lynch tried to go after us to take down Mom in Beast Mode. Listening to me rant on our blog (and even sometimes thinking it’s funny). Calming my nerves when I decided to do my first CrossFit competition. Believing in me when I told you I would be your voice, and I would make a change, and I would build a community where women could feel like they were really involved instead of just another customer. I’ve told you guys time over time, this company isn’t about making money, it’s about bringing together women who have like minded thoughts and support them and humor them and just be an awesome big girl gang!!!!

    I want more then anything in this world for you all to know that this company is 100% for you, and we are giving all we’ve got to bring you exactly what you want and need out of the apparel industry. We want you to KNOW that there’s a company out there that really truly is doing that. I started this because I needed that. I didn’t feel comfortable, and so I made sure that I would try to make a change. And yes, it’s really really hard to do what we are doing, and I get depressed on multiple occasions, and get upset that I’m not doing it quickly enough, but we are moving, we are going as quickly as we can. And I wouldn’t trade anything for these last three years… Well, maybe some of this depression HAHA, but you know, that’s what therapy’s for!

    Again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you, for sticking with us, sticking with me, believing in us, and being part of our girl gang!

    Cheers, and here’s to 3 more years!
    Andrea

    • We got office space!
    • We grew from 1 to 4 back to 1 then up to 3 again

    • I learned to actually love my body. (WOAH RIGHT?!?!)

    • I drastically changed my mindset from wanting to be something society has told me I should be, to someone I actually love.
    • We’ve sold to over 30 countries
    • We’ve expanded into Australia
    • We’ve made some awesome videos
    • We’ve had some awesome photoshoots
    • We had our first Crunch and Brunch in NYC!
    • Did I mention that I actually love the body I have???? That’s seriously, a HUGE THING
    • I spoke to a bunch of amazing college kids about Starting Something That Matters
  • 3 years down, how many more to go?

    DSC_0002Well, we have been anxiously planning what we are going to do for our 3rd birthday party, and in that, I sit here this morning thinking about the last 3 years… and last years party, and just T2T in general.

    When you take the chances and start a business, everyone tells you, “well, you’ve got to make it past year 3 to know you’re successful”, and, they’re always asking, “hey, how long have you been around? oh, only 2 years, the worst is yet to come”! Well, to me, and I said this at the “Start Something That Matters” event that awesome super-star Morgan put on at Stevenson University a few weeks ago, but we didn’t have to wait 3 years to be successful, we just had to make a difference in ONE person’s life to be successful, and we did that. Monetarily, yes, year 3-5 is really where you are either going to sink or swim, but this has never been about money for me, it’s always been about making a difference, and that’s what I want you to remember and that’s what I want you to all know – I don’t want your money, I want your camaraderie! I want this amazing girl gang who is all about loving themselves and their bodies and loving what their bodies can do and loving the fact that we can all shop at the same store because no one is excluded!!!! That’s what I want – and a product that says just that.

    So yes, we are approaching year 3, and we are successful, we aren’t going under, and most of all, I want to celebrate with my girl gang…. which is all of you!!!! So if you can, please join us for our THIRD BIRTHDAY PARTY, where we will JUMP, have drinks and apps, and have an over-all good time and we can celebrate that our girl gang is growing and we are showing this world that T2T is making moves and making a difference!!!!!

    RSVP TODAY!
