00:13:41 Belma McCaffrey: https://www.facebook.com/groups/workbiggercommunity/permalink/615088102433617/
00:15:48 Kait Edwards: Going off video so you guys don’t have to watch me eat spaghetti. Also have to drop at the half hour for a work meeting but excited to be here!
00:17:27 Belma McCaffrey: Sounds good Kait! 🙂
00:22:53 Kait Edwards: that’s so great to hear! I think from the outside you just think “man, they just quit their job and then started their business” — hearing it can be more piecemeal makes it seem so much more available…
00:23:24 Judy Levin: how long were you working on the business at night before you made it full time.
00:24:09 Kait Edwards: I’d like to know how you went about bringing in other people to help who had skill sets you didn’t. I love that you saw a need and set out to fill it; I think one of the intimidating thing for me is that I don’t have all of the skills to fill it on my own.
00:24:15 Ada Chen: Sorry y’all, Mochi is joining the call — when you say you did things piece meal, can you give us an example of something that you might have done in chunks over time?
00:26:27 Anne Campbell-Maxwell: how did you handle legal issues? initial investment?
00:32:34 Kait Edwards: GASP
00:35:23 Ada Chen: When you say you looked at numbers – like how much math did you do? Did you look at everything? How much math did you do with your husband? And did any of the number crunching cause you to change your goals for Brief Transitions or yourself?
00:37:00 Michelle Hacunda: How did you fill in other skill sets for your business? For instance, building a website, figuring out the financials, etc?
00:37:09 Ada Chen: ^^Seconding that question
00:41:21 Judy Levin: how did you find a manufacturer? Do you have a patent? How did you handle the first prototype?
00:47:21 Judy Levin: why do people lie?
00:47:30 Judy Levin: (rhetorical question)
00:49:36 Michelle Hacunda: Did you have a measure of success for yourself? How did you figure out how to make more than you were spending on production, design, etc.
00:49:57 Ada Chen: When did you start paying yourself?
00:50:08 Michelle Hacunda: Have to step away for a minute. Be right back.
01:00:43 Judy Levin: lots of great SBA loan benefits if the loan is taken by Sept 30.
01:02:25 Michelle Hacunda: I’m back now. Sorry for my delay. Thank you!
01:04:05 Lauren Vang: 2 questions: Did you use a business coach? Would you recommend one? Would you still make the leap the way you did if you didn’t have a partner income (was single and self dependent only)?
01:04:21 Judy Levin: how do you handle fulfillment? where is your product stored?
01:05:15 Judy Levin: and if you need marketing help related to measuring purchase metrics, retention rates and how to calculate your acquisition needs, feel free to reach out and I can help you figure that out.
01:05:47 Ada Chen: Can you tell I’ve been doing all my #s lately?!? LOL.
01:07:18 Sheridan Ex: Have to leave a bit early but thank you so much! Talk to you all soon.

01:10:26 Kait Edwards: thank you, Mary!
