We came across the radio interview ideas 2 years ago when helping out a BFM presenter restoring his shoes. We did follow up but it didn’t go through.
Fast forward 2 years later, after our aggressive growth in 2018. Our intern Joshua pitched our story to Richard, one of the BFM producer and presenter. We were thrilled to received his email saying he was very much interested in the business idea and wanted to interview us for their Open For Business session.
I thought it would be exciting and easy, as I’ve always been talking about Shoe Mo stories, how our business works – So I was pretty chill at the beginning.
But I was wrong. When I enter the set and sat down in front of the mic. I felt the pressure. I was nervous even talking about things I talk everyday. If you listen to the interview, you’ll hear my nervousness pretty clear. There were parts that I had to paused (which was removed from the interview) because my head is running ahead of my mouth, the ideas in my head was running to fast for me to verbalize it. Luckily, Jack, my partner, always as chill as he is, has conveyed the message well.
Right after the interview was live, we had inquiry emails coming asking for partnerships and franchise, they also express their admire and interest towards our interview. We are absolutely grateful to have the chance to get such exposure. For my personal learning, that I know I can do better next time.
Onwards and upwards,
