Thoughts on being an intern?

I really enjoyed being an intern at TEAL Apparel. I not only had fun, but I feel that I learned a lot about how a business runs. I really loved being up close with the products, and being able to see all the different facets of how the product goes from being an idea to becoming a reality. I liked that TEAL was a small company, because I feel that if I had interned at a large corporation, I wouldn’t have learned as much. 
  

What did you expect?

I don’t really know what I expected to be honest. I guess when I think of an intern and an internship, I think of someone who is fetching coffees for the big boss. But that is not what TEAL was like at all. I didn’t think as an intern that Jenni would ask for my opinion or my input on products as much as she did. I also didn’t think the internship would be as hands on as it was.

Best part of the internship?

There were a lot of best parts of this internship for me. One of the parts that I really enjoyed was going to the factory. I loved seeing where and how the clothing was made. I also really liked sitting in on meetings with Jenni. I thought it was very interesting to see how meetings like this work. I think I learned a lot from watching Jenni in these meetings, and hearing and seeing the types of questions she asks, and how she answers the questions that are posed to her.

What surprised you the most?

 
Hmmm…The thing that surprised me the most is how cool Jenni is and how passionate she is about TEAL Apparel. Like I said, I didn’t really know what to expect with this Internship, but Jenni exceeded anything that I could have imagined. She was just so helpful, I feel that I’ve learned a lot with just talking to Jenni and getting advice on my future. Jenni is very insightful, super encouraging and supportive. I really enjoyed this internship, and all the information and skills that I have gained from this. 
 
 
 
 

 

This past Winter/Spring TEAL had a new first. Instead of one intern we lucked out with two. This dynamic duo came to us from Newbury College, with Fashion Merchandising majors and several shared experiences including, study abroad in Florence, Italty to directing and coordinating the College’s fashion show. To say we hit the jackpot was an understatement. They cranked out blog posts, did research on several new products, sat in on sample fittings, shot tons of material for social media, coordinated a photoshoot, joined a sales pitch to a new client and journeyed to our factory in Everett.  Lauren and Naomi model teamwork, commitment, creativity and determination. Thank you and congratulations on your graduation from Newbury College! Wishing you both much learning and success.

Ever finish a shower without getting your hair wet? 

Are you the only person your age who has to sit down in the shower just to wash your hair?

You know, those silly shower heads that get your chest hairs wet, but don’t touch any hairs on your head?  The average height of a shower head in America is 6’6, but what happens if you are 6’6 or taller?  Check out these shower head attachments that’ll give you at least 4+ inches of added height.

Tiptoe 2

 

During college, I was a student athlete on the crew team. At 5’9 I was on the short end of the spectrum. Many of my teammates were 5’10 – 6’+.  Finding an appropriately tall person to date was as easy as finding another student athlete.  The tall dating pool was built in.

However, after school, in my 20s I moved to a big city.  I had a few above average height friends (gals 6′ tall) and I noticed that tall mates seemed less available unless you were part of an athletic club (e.g. volleyball club, triathlete circuit) or just got lucky and worked with a tall person or tall people). It was challenging to find tall guys to date and it seemed like the most important criteria (aside from having a job and not being an axe murderer!!) was height. They needed to find someone that was taller than them.

With each generation getting taller finding a tall mate may become more of a challenge. www.tall.singles Founder, Richard Vickery, tells us why and how his tall dating site works. TallSingle.com started in the UK and is now in the US and it boasts 80 marriages. If height is a “must-have” quality for you then read on and find out how www.tall.singles weeds out the shorter mates. Let vertically enhanced love find you.

Q

Why a tall specific dating site?

When I got to that age where you start going to nightclubs and bars trying to find girlfriends I would always struggle to meet someone. Not becuase I was ugly (well I hope that wasn’t the reason!) but because I was tall. You see I had a growth spurt in my teenage years and in my late teens I was head and shoulders above everyone my age. So when I walked into a bar I was very often the tallest person of my age in there and the majority of the women my age were much shorter. This continued all the way throught my early 20’s. It made me think that I meeded to find a way to solve this problem. So one evening I searched for free domain names and realised tallsingles.co.uk was free, I bought it immediately and started a tall persons dating site.

 

Q

 

Do tall people have more difficulty finding a mate?

A

 

Well from my experience and the feedback I have had from other people, the answer would be yes! Women seems to want to date men who are taller than them, much of this is due to social pressure (it’s not often you see couples where the man is shorter) and some of it is to do with wanting to feel protected by a taller man. For tall men, it’s again the social pressure but also the fact that a really big height difference can feel awkward. Tall people get enough people stare at them when they walk along on their own, that is multiplied 10 times when they walk hand in hand with a partner who is much shorter.

Q

 

Are tall people considered more attractive which is why they can have their own site?

A

 

No I don’t think so. The idea of the site is to allow tall people to meet other tall people, in order to avoid the “difficult” situations that arise when tall people date much shorter people.

 

Q

How does your dating site work? Do you set up a profile, wink, go on dates, etc?

A

 

You can join our site for free initially, so you can see if it is of interest. You set up a profile, which includes a photo, some multiple choice questions which you answer about yourself and a small bio. Once that is done, you can then search for people you might want to date and send them a ‘wink’ (which is an easy way to say you like the look of them) or a message. If you want to arrange a date, you have to upgrade to paid membership.

 

Q

 

What is the cost to join your service?

A

 

Our business model is a subscription service. The costs are as follows, 6 month’s membership £79.95, 3 month’s membership £49.95 and 1 month membership – £24.95. We are up to 72% cheaper than one of the most popular dating sites match.com and of course we only have tall members on our site which is just what tall people want. I am happy to give your readers a 50% discount on a 1 month membership, all they need to do is enter code “50TALL” at checkout.

 

Q

How do you set yourself apart from your peers?

A

 

Two things set us apart from our peers. Firstly we are one of the only tall dating sites that restricts members by height, women have to be 5’5’’ and over, men 6’0’’ and over. Secndly we are building a tall community, to discuss tall issues, have a laught about all those things tall people are asked etc.

 

Q

Why did you start this business? Was it to find a relationship? Can you share other success stories?

A

 

I started the business in 2012: http://www.tallsingle.com/. As I mentioned above it was to solve a problem that I had encountered when I was younger. I would definitely use it to find a relationship, but when I created the site I was already in a relationship.

 

We have had over 80 marriages so I can happily share some success stories.  To be continued in a future post.
