While on an extended maternity leave, Meg Staples found herself at a running event, frustrated by the lack of quality women’s athletic wear at affordable prices and inclusive sizes. Without any prior business experience, Meg used her textiles and design education to solve the problem through the business she’s founded, Her Tribe Athletics. In today’s episode, I’m talking with Meg about starting a business with no business experience, and growing slow while she maintains her career as an art teacher. The focus seems to be on growing fast these days, but you don’t have to quit your day job to start a business. A slow start can be the best way to work through the initial challenges of a new business without blowing your budget.

About the Guest:

Meg is a passionate runner and yogi. She found her love of exercise through her weight loss journey of 70 pounds and has been hitting the pavement ever since. Running and exercise have shown her that she has a body that can do amazing things - including have two children! Meg majored in textile design & art education at MassArt, and is full time elementary art teacher. She loves incorporating her passion for exercise with her art background - personally designing everything that comes through Her Tribe Athletics. She is excited to build a tribe of amazing, strong women here who want to have fun while working out in affordable and comfortable athletic clothes.

Her Tribe Athletics began with a vision to provide affordable, comfortable workout clothing for women of all shapes and sizes. Clothing that doesn’t move around and fits the way you need it to! Her Tribe Athletics supports women who are runners, cyclists, yogis, gym rats, walkers, aerialists, spin enthusiasts, and any woman who is or wants to be active.
