The countdown is on! We’re officially just 5 days away from the kickoff of the next semester of LBU Live, my “how to wholesale” class for makers and product designers on the move. I’m honored and excited to welcome a new class of creative brands who are keen on infusing their game plan with smart wholesale strategy. This is the sixth semester of the program and I’m so encouraged by the volume of talent, passion and potential this group holds.
Here’s a sneak peek at who’s diving deep with us this spring for Lucky Break University…
LBU SPRING SEMESTER: FUN FACTS
100% are women.
California is the best-represented state, with 7 students, but New York is a close second with 6 participants. We’re also welcoming students from Tennessee, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Texas, Florida, Oregon, Colorado, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio.
We extend an especially warm welcome to students from Vietnam, Australia and the United Kingdom!
The “oldest” business launched in 2003. The newest? Hasn’t even launched yet.
18 of the brands currently wholesale their products.
9 have exhibited at trade shows.
2 have utilized sales reps.
Each semester, we carefully survey graduates to measure student progress and collect honest feedback about the Lucky Break University program. After five solid semesters, I’m thrilled to say that every single graduate in the history of the program, has said that they believe LBU was a wise investment for their business AND they’d recommend the program to a friend. That’s a track record of which we’re especially proud!
