What has been your biggest hurdle?

There has been many from when i started in 2009. took a loan and opened my fashion store which closed down after 8 months due to lack of experience in running business and other factors. The investors took me to court and everything was stripped off me and i only managed to save the laptop. After i inquired the factory in 2017 from the Previous owner Pamela Schweitzer, 80% of her Caucasian customers started living and had to start looking ta other markets to keep the company going. The idea of targeting Entrepreneurs who have online boutiques or want to start a side hussle was born and its working. I bless them and they bless me in return. Covid19 left Exodus Factory having to start from scratch all over again although we did survive the pandemic. it is 2024 and we are still yet to recover. form 24 employees to 15 employees
