Our Humble Beginnings
Howdy, I'm Sarah, owner and founder of the Humble Collective. There are many tales to tell about this Humble business, but I want to tell my favorite because I know someone needs to hear it right now: the story of our humble beginnings.
It's fall of 2017, and I was harvesting and trimming cannabis. I was super excited to be working for the first time in years and was saving up money to buy a new couch. I despised our couch - my hate for it was like a living, breathing entity. So while I'm trimming and in my head day in and day out, I schemed up the idea for this business. I nervously decided to spend the $1200 I was saving for my couch on supplies to start the business instead. I wanted to help out a few friends by providing good quality CBD at an affordable price (CBD in those days was wayyyyyyyy overpriced, well heck it still is most places) and hoped I'd be profitable enough to cover the groceries for my family and maybe get that couch too sometime.
It took me 8 months to finally buy that new couch- not because the business wasn't profitable, but because I was too busy hustling CBD and blowing up to even have time to go couch shopping.
I invested in myself and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. We have been operating as a debt free company since day #1, where I sold out of our initial inventory in minutes.
We have had so many highs and so many lows since I launched by posting on my Facebook page looking for friends to test out the CBD rollers, oil and salves I made. But as I repeated to myself as I nervously spent that hard earned $1200 dollars on ingredients and supplies- "If I can help just one person, than it was a smashing success."
Welp, we've helped tens of thousands of people lead better and healthier lives since then and this is only the beginning.
So if you read all that, I wanna know: when were you introduced to Humble Roots/Collective and what lovely soul told you about us?!
PS: to whoever needed to hear this story, I'm cheering you on right now. Take that leap girl. Invest in yourself.
