In this special dual feature, we interview Rory Westbrook, Founder of True Vintage, Europe’s leading online vintage retailer, and John Murray, Co-Founder with Rory at Shoppex, the industry-leading mobile app builder for e-commerce brands. When Rory started True Vintage in college, his friends and family gave him 12-24 months before customers would lose interest, but he proved them wrong. Six years later, True Vintage has doubled growth year after year.
In Part 1 of this episode, Rory and John discuss How Rory started True Vintage in College and how students loans helped, Why Instagram was key to success in the early days (and today), How being early selling vintage clothing online was so crucial, How Rory was planning his own brand as early as 10 years old, Why not liking “being told” what to do is key to entrepreneurship, Why problem-solving is a key trait for entrepreneurs, What advice he would give to people in college or just graduated, What Rory would do differently if he had to do it all over again, and so much more.
Join us while Ramon Vela interviews Rory & John in Part 1 of this episode and listen to them share the inside story of a brand.
