Look! You've made it!👏 Welcome to one of the coolest pages on this entire site. I'm just kidding, the whole site is cool! (I'm not biased or anything...😜)
If you're sitting there at your computer or phone screen, reading this, then you're here to learn a little bit more about me. Well, what else could I possibly tell you? I'm pretty much an open book (As I'm sure you know from my Insta Stories, am I right? ☕️🐸). I like to keep it real with you guys, and not stick to the "perfect" thing that you see plastered all over the world wide web. So far, I think I'm doing a good job.
So why did I even create Fett+Co.? And how did I do it? Well friend, I'm glad you asked. Sit back, grab a cozy blanket, a hot coffee and I'll tell you how Brittanyfett turned herself into a #GIRLBOSS + created an Empire.
Sike, not an Empire (MORE LIKE THE RESISTANCE 😉) but you get what I mean. For the longest time, I've been wanting to create my own business. I've had many ventures (and boy do i mean many). I was a full time, lifestyle photographer in my area. I love shooting candid/documentary style shoots and I had a lot of business. I was just tired of how oversaturated the "industry" was and AFTER A WHILE, it stopped being fun for me. But I still wanted to do photography, or find a job that at least involved it (check, holla). When I was a photographer, I mostly shot children and children's birthday parties and I LOVED it. Because of this, after I decided to put photography on the back burner, I started looking into starting a 'planning children's parties' business. I get crazy obsessed when planning Madi's birthday parties and it's so much fun to do! Planning in general is super fun for me! Well, long story short - that didn't work out. But I was still stuck on planning. Thats when I looked into planning Disney vacations. I did a lot of research on travel agencies and found one that I was really interested in.
ARE YOU STILL HERE? WOAH. I'm surprised you kept reading! Well then, let's continue on with how Fett+Co. became a "THING".
I applied on a whim to that travel agency and literally the next day I got an email back, asking me to set up a phone interview. This was a huge deal because they rarely hired any new agents. To say I was over the moon, is an understatement. I started all the training, College of Disney Knowledge and that's when my planning/Disney obsessions warped to light speed. After I finished all of my training and was just waiting to officially start, I decided to organize and rearrange my office space. Doing so, I found a lot of my old art and tattoo sketches (Did i mention that I used to want to be a tattoo artist? I even have a tattoo gun + kit 😬).
YOU KNOW WHEN YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE CLEANING, AND YOU FIND SOMETHING, STOP CLEANING + GET TOTALLY SIDETRACKED? YEAH...THAT'S HOW FETT+CO WAS BORN!
Well, my office being clean got pushed back to the following day, because I just sat there going through and reworking some of my previous designs and sketches. Then I realized some of them would look really cool on a T-shirt! Plus, we had a Disney trip coming up soon, so I thought "Hey, why not?!". Unfortunately my test prints didn't come in before we left on our vacation, but when they came in OH. MY. GOD. did I freak out! I immediately hopped on twitter and showed my friends, Brittany and Susan (The two angels who pushed me to pursue my dreams) how well they turned out. And that was what jumpstarted my little corner of the internet.
BUT HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE NAME?
Well, Boba Fett has always been my favorite (well, male favorite) Star Wars character. Because of that, my personal instagram is @brittanyfett. I wanted to have a shop name that tied into me + what I'm about, without just being my name (that's lame y'all). I went through many options, but Fett+Co. had my favorite ring. It's like picking a baby name, it's gotta sound right saying it out loud!
Holy crap, I wrote a lot. If you read this far, I wish I could give you a hug + some coffee. Did I also tell you that I was an creative writing major? I've written a novel and a poetry book (both of which are hidden in the deepest part of my laptop and will probably never see the light of day). I changed my major A LOT if you couldn't tell. The more you know 😘😂
