After four years of running an e-commerce business, let me share a secret with you: want to know the easiest way to get someone to join your mailing list, or purchase your product? Offer a discount code. And that seems like an innocuous enough thing to do. The customer gets what she wants (a lower price) and I get what I want: a customer. But the true cost is much greater: to me, and to you - my customers, my community. Let me explain. For the first three years, I ran this company without a concrete plan. All I knew is that...

A little over six months ago, my dear friend Shani Silver launched a podcast by, for and about single women called A Single Serving Podcast. The goal: to change the conversation around being single into one that doesn't suck. Spoiler alert: it's really good. So good that it has already had 60,000 downloads. Shani has been single for eleven years. And she's not mad about it. Her perspective is outrageously uplifting, refreshing, and most of all, real. Her column for Refinery29, Every Single Day, is one of the site's most successful for precisely these reasons. I feel lucky that I got to...
Self love is priceless. It’s one of the few things that is accessible to anyone, and it has always been a priority of ours to make our Self Love Pinky Ring equally as accessible. We understand that the Self Love Pinky Ring is a big investment, and the last thing we want is for you to purchase something you can't afford all at once. For that reason, we've incorporated afterpay as a payment option on our website, which allows you to pay for your purchase in 4 equal installments every 2 weeks with no interest. How is afterpay able to do that?...
After a six-month, self care break, the Self Love Pinky Ring is back. And so am I. I’m here to share the backstory, and also to share why this time is different. Six months ago, I had one of the best sales months in Fred and Far’s history. You might ask yourself, “Who would walk away from that? Who would say no to people who want to buy something from you?” That would be me, Melody Godfred, your founder. Even though the business was flourishing, I was breaking. I had recently had my third child, dealt with another health scare,...

Dearest tribe, Last night as I looked up at the blood moon lunar eclipse, I found the certainty I've been searching for. Over the last year, I've started asking myself the questions I ask of all of you: am I being true to my most authentic self? Am I spending my time cultivating joy? Am I caring for myself? When I started working on Fred and Far and The Self Love Pinky Ring in 2015, I was in a very different place. I didn't even know to ask myself these questions. Putting on my pinky ring, and making myself a...
