In this episode
Six-time founder, Christine Mason, gives us an inside look into running a business in the sexual health and intimate wellness industry, how she turned her passion project into a sustainable business known as Rosebud Woman, and building a team that collaborates with healthcare professionals.
Starting a business that’s “Outside the Lines”
We discuss how language is treated in the sexual health and intimate wellness industry and the process Christine took in choosing specific wording to get her messaging across with Rosebud Woman. Christine discusses how words like “sex” and “sexuality” can be more transactional vs. “self-massage” or “caring for the skin” that put health first. Christine chooses a movement to self-love and then sex.
Advice for young entrepreneurs looking to get into the field of sexuality
Christine offers some valuable advice for anyone looking to get into the sexuality field whether that be in education, products, services, etc. She advises against the “jack of all trades” route and recommends you pick one thing and do that thing really well and go from there.
