In our first quarterly event we discussed failure, now lets talk about how to get back up and try again.
Join us as we explore how to overcome adversity and failures in our second installment of the 2019 Event Series on Growth.
This program features Sara Moylan, founder of Shefit Apparel, who took a personal need and created a solution from the ground up. She will be taking us through her journey of falling, getting back up, and overcoming the obstacles in her way.
Sara Moylan, Shefit Apparel
Sara is a wife, mother, business owner, product innovator and spirited advocate for women. Her courage and tenacity have culminated in the creation of Shefit, a revolutionary sports gear company headquartered in Grand Rapids, MI, that equips women with the support they need to achieve their personal goals.
As a mother of four girls and an International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness competitor. Sara Marie understands the physical and emotional challenges women face every day. In 2013, she decided to take her winning drive from fitness and beauty competitions and make a difference in the business world. Her Shefit Ultimate Sports Bra, with its patented zip-cinch-lift design, filled a void in the traditional sports bra category, providing revolutionary support and comfort for women. In 2016, her game-changing product led her and her husband, Bob, to Shark Tank, where they won the support of judge Daymond John, and the opportunity to share her product with the world. Today, Shefit sells over 100,000 sports and lounge bras to active women, of all shapes and sizes, who demand better support. Her products have created a passionate sisterhood of women across the country whose lives have been changed by Shefit.
Sara Marie’s unrelenting drive and hard work ethic have been recognized by the 2017 “40 Under 40” Class for top young professionals, 2018 Michigan Top 50 Companies to Watch and by magazine as a 2018 Enterprising Woman of the Year. She also continues to be a role model for women, balancing personal health and fitness with motherhood and business, sharing her philosophy and approach to life through her brand, Shefit.
