The first F-word: Fine.
1. of high quality.
Colloquially, "fine" is not fine. "It's fine" is a resignation, an acceptance, something we say to mean the exact opposite of "fine".
When I started cycling, I would search for apparel that felt like something that I would actually want to wear. But I had to settle for poor fit, girly designs, scratchy, cheap feeling fabrics. I'd get dressed for a ride and think, "it's fine." And then I got sick of it. And here we are. Lexi Miller is my antidote for "fine".
The other F word: female.
I'm really excited to announce that I joined The F Project's third cohort. The F (as in female) project is an initiative to help female founders become more visible to consumers.
Why are we doing this?
Because although we account for 70% of consumer purchasing, female founded business received 2.2% of all venture funding in 2018.
Because a rising tide lifts all ships. We're here to support one another in our challenges and celebrate our successes, and to shine a light on all of the hard work we are doing, creating solutions for ourselves and other women.
I can't speak for all of my fellow founders, but I'd suspect that a lot of us started our businesses because we realized that fine is not actually fine.
