HARDT (116 of 608)

One thing we have started to notice about our Bowed Arrow Babes is how genuine, personable and sweet they all are. Maybe that is one of the big keys as to why they are so successful! Of course they are also driven and fearless!

Taryn is all of the above and such a big inspiration because she started her company with absolutely no experience and has taught herself along the way. It hasn’t even been a full year and she already has over 13k followers on Instagram!

Now, it’s time to meet her!

BA: Go ahead, introduce yourself and let us know a little more about you!

TMy name is Taryn Rasgon, and I am 25 years old. I grew up in Agoura Hills, CA and started my own company, Vegetaryn, in November of 2014.

BA: Tell us how Vegetaryn came to be.

TWhen I was in college my friends were all about being Entrepreneurs. Their work ethic and drive really rubbed off on me. I figured the best way to learn about business, was to go out and try to start one. Even though I have never taken a course in graphic design, SEO,  or marketing, I have figured out how to build a website, brand, and business – mostly, I can thank Google for the answers :)

BA: What’s a memorable moment from your journey?

TI’ll never forget the first time I got a sale, I honestly did not know if I was going to be able to sell a single shirt. It was the best feeling when I got the first notification that someone purchased a Vegetaryn shirt, I couldn’t believe it, it felt like my hard work became worth it!

BA: What does a day in the life of Taryn entail?

TA day in the life of Taryn entails waking up in the morning and starting the day off with either Tea or a Smoothie. Then I answer emails and check my social media. Usually, each day can vary but I often spend my day in coffee shops, my apartment, or vegan eateries working on updates, blog posts, events, shipping & packaging, and maintaining all things Vegetaryn. All while eating delicious plant-based food throughout the day!

BA: The items you sell are adorable! Where did you get your inspo for the fun, creative sayings?!

TIt’s funny because I have tons of sayings and lots of exciting plans for new designs in the future. I usually think of 3 or 4 of the sayings at once. It’s like I get a burst of inspiration and my brain is on fire (usually I am with a friend or two, when we are being clever). I keep a list of all the sayings I ever come up with. I ask my friends and family which ones they like and then start from there. All Vegetaryn shirts & items are meant to be fun and worn as easy conversation starters. What better way to meet a stranger than over a good laugh?!
