Hey, this is Ivar, owner of GetLostApparel and I want to welcome you to our brand.
About 24 years ago, my parents put ski’s underneath my feet before I could even walk. From then on, I’ve been skiing every single year until now. This little hobby became my obsession.
Because I live in the Netherlands and there are literally NO mountains, it was impossible to go skiing in our own country. We ‘only’ went skiing one week a year - wherefore I’m super thankful, don’t get me wrong – so I had to wait 51 more weeks every single year to practice my passion.
I’ve always been active, playing outside with my friends and practicing a lot of sports. That's why I decided that I wanted to do more related to skiing and being outdoors.
I made plans to become a ski instructor in the winter and be a mountain guide in the summer, to move to the Alps and work in a local ski shop, to run my own restaurant in a cosy mountain village and I made plans for a whole lot more...
I didn't really know what exactly I wanted to do, the only thing I knew was that my goal was to share my passion with others!
GetLostApparel is where all these plans and idea's come together and where our passion can be shared with likeminded people in our community.
But before this all started, life was completely different at that time..
When I was at school I waited for the bell to ring and when I got home I wasted most if my time gaming or watching Netflix.
I felt like I didn't know what I wanted to do after all this. I felt a little bit lost...
Eventually, I felt a little bit scared that after everything, my life would stay like this...
I had been blindly following the status quo for 24 years, moving towards one goal, only to find out this wasn't what I wanted...
I looked to my left ... and I looked to my right ... and I saw so many people around me doing stuff other people wanted them to do...
I didn't want to take that same route. I wanted to make my own decisions, that includes Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm…
On top of that, I saw so many people – especially on Social Media – that managed to achieve a life where they do live life on their own terms, with a constant smile on their faces.
I asked myself: ‘what makes these people that have achieved this life so special?’
‘Do they have an angel looking after them?’ No…
‘Are they blessed with some sort of entrepreneurial skills?’ No…
I was confused... What on earth is it that makes them so special?!
Well, it wasn't something special... It's just that they take action and share their passion with likeminded people!
Nevertheless, I was still confused...
Everyone around me kept telling me to finish college so I could get a good job.
Sure, there would be a lot of celebrating. But what about the next morning?
That would be the moment that we all had to meet the "Real World".
And as I figured out already that was not what I wanted...
I started to figure out my next steps and stumbled upon some cool idea's to share my passion with others and create a community full of likeminded people.
I already told you that I saw a lot of people doing what they loved on Social Media.
Also, I told you that I had some idea's about sharing my passion with others.
This all came together when I discovered a perfect platform which allowed people to share everything they possibly wanted about their passion.
They could share memories, stories, feelings, photo's, video's and so much more.
And this platform was...
Instagram! You got it right.
Sometimes the solution to a problem can be around already for years...
With the use of Instagram around the community I wanted to build, people will be able to network with each other, help each other grow and maybe even get to meet each other in the long run. How awesome would that be?!
All of a sudden, the idea's I had started to look like something that could actually work.
I didn't feel lost anymore in a way that I didn't know what to do, I felt lost in a way that I didn't know what tomorrow is going to bring me and I loved it!
That's the moment that TeamGetLost was created and when 'I' transformed into 'we'.
From this moment on we woke up every single day with one goal in mind: create this community and make it one where people would feel motivated to continue living their life to their fullest potential, while going above and beyond and letting nothing stop them along the way.
We, TeamGetLost, want people to feel determined to take initiative to do whatever it is that inspires them in in their lives.
We want people to conquer every obstacle that may arise within their journey and take action towards achieving their wildest dreams.
We want YOU to know that with the right mindset and with the right people around you, anything is possible!
It doesn't matter if you ski, snowboard or if your passion is being outdoors. As long as you want to take action towards your wildest dreams you are more than welcome to join our community.
Let's change the feeling of 'I am lost and don't know what to do', into 'I love being lost because I don't know what tomorrow is going to bring me'.
But at first, we were concerned that that no one would want to join our team because we didn't have a lot of benefits in place...
Luckily, that wasn't the case!
People with the same vision about life were gladly joining our team because they resonated so well with everything we preached.
People in TeamGetLost were sharing their stories, their dreams, their vision about life and everyone was helping each other to get what they wanted in life.
We asked our TeamGetLost members to describe what our brand stands for from their perspective. They answered the following:
Explore, Dream, Network.
Explore the world and the new opportunities that come along with it...
Dream big and do whatever inspires you in life...
Network with likeminded people and help each other to achieve your dreams...
We felt so grateful that our community was growing in something beautiful like this.
We wanted to give back to our community a little more...
That's when we came up with all the benefits for ambassadors in TeamGetLost.
