Australian supermodel Megan Gayle has revealed in a post on Instagram that she is closing her business after “trusting the wrong people”.
Mindful Life, a natural skincare brand for babies and toddlers, took six years to build from concept to reality, and was launched 18 months ago.
“After much deliberation, I am urging you to close my online store,” he said in a lengthy video post.
The news came after she surfaced on social media last week with an update on how she was coping with the death of her brother, Jason Gail.
“Last week I posted a video and I touched on the fact that I’m going through a lot of stuff this year – apart from what happened to my brother, what I’m talking about is my business. He said. .
The supermodel blamed the business troubles on an unwanted “third party”.
“When you are a very small start-up and you don’t have a lot of basic needs and you don’t have a lot of things at home, you have to hand over some responsibilities and tasks to third parties, other businesses. That’s all I had to do, “he said.
“In short, I trusted the wrong people … in some of the biggest elements of the business.”
The supermodel said she was “very proud” of the business that managed to cope with COVID despite being through sales.
“However, it was not without its challenges. I knew in the beginning I wouldn’t be able to do it without the challenges. I was ready for that. I was warned about that, “he said.
“What I wasn’t prepared for was that these drunken issues would spread to bigger issues, that they would continue, and in fact, they wouldn’t continue.
“It’s got to the point where these issues are quite complex.”
Gayle said running the business alone has been “particularly challenging” and “the only way out” ਨਾ not having anyone in the ditch with you.
One clich ਕਲ point was when he realized that businesses could not deliver stocks to customers on time.
“It wasn’t until June this year that I realized how much time I had wasted and how I couldn’t come back,” he said.
“It simply came to our notice then. I mean, I’m a very tough chick, I had a lot of fights. I used all of my reserves of flexibility and determination and only neutral determination. ”
Ms Gail said she did not want to outsource to other people and wanted to start over because she was “physically, mentally and emotionally overwhelmed”.
“So I got to that point in June and said, ‘It’s done, I’m done.'”
“If the things that were under my control or the things that I did, I could at least own it and try to fix it and fix it, but when it was something that someone Others have done it and it’s out of your control, there’s so much stupidity here, “he said.
Mrs. Gail spent two weeks in quarantine when she went to Perth for her brother’s funeral after a sudden passing, saying she had “plenty of time to think.”
“There is nothing like dying to be close to someone to stop you and take stock and reconsider what you are doing with your own life and how precious life is and the full significance of the fact that our lives How precious. ”
Fans received heartfelt messages, including from Australian fashion designer Alex Perry, who commented: “Family is everything, my best friend… everything! The rest can wait. ”

Gretty Pretty Eleanor Pendleton, founder and editor of Beauty Site, wrote: “Thank you for always being your most honest and authentic self-beautiful lady! Not you but we thank you – you are currently helping many others through the struggles of small business. Your decision is not easy – but you made it with courage, courage and training in the face of deep loss and grief. ”
Ms Gail said she wanted to focus her time around her children, the river and her livelihood, “instead of fighting and struggling and doing business with it”.
“It’s the first time I’ve really thought about closing and closing just one door and leaving it open for everything,” he said.
She said she is still selling the remaining stock.
“It’s a shame to shut down the whole business, there’s an online platform, a very smart following and some amazing customers, but I need some time to sit down,” he said.
