I am about to launch my new company called Modern Scout, and I thought that it would be a good idea to write a little blog post about my new adventure.
To make a short story long…
I currently own a clothing brand called Root Avenue. Root Avenue was started in October of 2014 in my parents kitchen. My family & I were living with my parents while we saved up money to buy a home. I wanted to help bring in extra income, and starting a clothing brand was always something I was interested in. My parents helped fund the start up costs, and within just a few months I was able to pay them back and start contributing to saving for a new home.
By June of 2015 we had found a house and were ready to move out. I remember that right before moving out I told my parents that my next project would be writing a children’s book.
Fast forward to Spring 2016, I had been brainstorming children’s book ideas, which led me to thinking about starting a whole new company. I absolute love interactive books and journals, and an interactive adventure journal sounded like something a lot of people would enjoy. I began creating my journal, which I titled “Adventure Collector”. This journal is the first edition, of hopefully many, which I have labeled Troop Edition. The Troop Edition was created for families, and each page has a new adventure idea, along with blanks to be filled out along the way. It is perfect for families with children ages 3 and up. I think that children between the ages of 7-12 will especially enjoy it if they are able to fill in the blanks themselves. I already have my second edition in the works, which will be for couples.
While creating the journal I started to have a clear vision of what my new brand would be. Modern Scout will be about all things ADVENTURE! We will carry patches/pins/stickers/journals/etc. Unfortunately, I will not be able to carry all the items that I would like to at it’s launch. But my goal is to be able to add new items frequently and hopefully very soon!
A little about Modern Scout’s main product, the Adventure Collector Kit:
The Adventure Collector kit includes the Adventure Collector: Troop Edition journal, adventure pouch, Modern Scout pencil, tape, page clip.
Part of my mission with Modern Scout is to bring adventurers together. Our Adventure Club keychains each have a different number, to make each ‘membership’ truly one of a kind.
*My favorite part about the keychains:*
We (my husband and I) really wanted to be able to give back, and keep it consistent and local. We decided that we would give $1 from every Adventure Club keychain sale back to the community. So, once a month we will go out and give back. Whether it be paying for people’s groceries, paying for someone’s gas tank to be filled, or providing kids with school supplies.
This is all just a little “sneak peek” into what Modern Scout is all about. I have so many ideas and plans for this little brand. I hope & pray that people love it as much as I do!!
Exact launch date will be announced soon. It will be towards the end of January 2017.
To be notified of our grand opening please be sure to join the mailing list!
Excited to explore with you all!!
I still plan on writing children’s books one day. So stay tuned for that. Ha! 😉
