A Message From Our Founder - Shelby
WOW! First, I am overwhelmed by the love and support I have gotten since starting this new venture. I am so thankful to everyone who has taken the time to give us a follow, a like, and signed up for our email list. Those of you who are just stopping by and browsing our website I am thankful for you too! You do not have to wait long now! We are getting so close to being able to show you our first suits. Keep an eye on your emails ;) .
Starting Far Out was a huge leap for me. When I moved back to Florida from Australia, I really didn't know what I was going to do. I knew I didn't want to work another desk job forever or be a server in a restaurant (my anxiety could not handle that for long). The only thing I could think of was to start my own business. The only problem is I had no idea how to do that. I have no college degree and no business background, but I was passionate that this is what I wanted to do. This is where I stumbled upon the entrepreneurship program at HCC. They helped me learn all the foundations I needed to start a business. Now I am excited and ready to show Far Out Swimwear to all of you.
I feel I am sharing a side of myself that not a lot of people have seen. I am determined to make a difference with Far Out. I want this brand to empower women from every background, help us make better sustainable choices in our lives, and keep life exciting. I want to make sustainability bad ass. Create a movement. And, as the founder I will do everything in my power to make Far Out the amazing brand I know it can be.
So again, Thank you. From the confused girl two years ago to a business owner I feel empowered and excited to take on this journey with you all.
- Shelby, Founder of Far Out Swimwear
