About

Video summary: This is an Instagram story I made a while back, explaining my process of making a rainbow swirl long sleeve!

How A 17 Year Old Kid Started A Tie Dye Empire (Working Title)

Well.. My tie dye story starts a few years ago...When I was 13 or 14 my siblings and I decided to go to Hobby Lobby and pick up a Jacquard Tie Dye Kit on a whim. We were intrigued by tie dye and were ready to try it out for ourselves!

After watching the instructional video and rummaging through all the contents of the " Do-It-Yourself" package, we got to it and I immediately fell in love with the concept of the
semi-surprise you'd get 24 hours later. After that day we tie dyed regularly, maybe once or twice a week for a few month straight. My sisters and I never got tired of it!
Once we'd each amassed 7-10 tie dye shirts a piece our mom kinda put the kibosh on our adventure saying that we should slow down because there was really no reason to be making so many shirts just for ourselves. So our production slowed down. We tie dyed here and there with our friends and family.

I'd always loved tie dye, but kinda forgot about it.

So now it's 2017 and I'm on my way back home from a family road trip from Arizona to Michigan.
Somewhere in Oklahoma it hit me like a rock..." A Tie Dye Etsy Shop"
I immediately blurted out to the car; " What do you guys think about a tie dye Etsy shop?"
They were kinda taken aback by the abrupt business proposal.
But my mom and aunt said, " It's an idea for sure! Not a bad one at all!"

So that's where a 17 year old Jake came up with the idea to turn his passion into a business.
The rest of the road home was spent brainstorming, daydreaming, and planning.
"What would the name be?"
"What designs would I make?"
"How on earth do you start an Etsy shop?"

All questions were answered in time.
The rest of the year was spent quietly testing, planning, dreaming, discussing, and getting a plan in place.

Jake's Tie Dye was officially launched on January 28th, 2018!!
And I. Was. Terrified.
I was scared that nobody would like my work, that I'd make no sales, that I'd have to get a "real job" and my dream job would be a failure.

All of those things have yet to happen.

I'm very grateful for my family and my friends who've supported my small business thus far!!
Also a huge shoutout to CrankyGirlTieDye for chatting with me about business stuff and geeking out with me about tie dye that nobody else gets ;)

So here I am, running my small business and loving every minute of it!
I'm ecstatic for the future of Jake'sTieDye!!

Have a good one!
-Jake
