One of the challenging parts of growing this label has been meeting all sorts of people. I’ve been told that as an industry fashion is super challenging.
Takes a lot of time. One woman told me a decade, then she paired it back to 3 years once I told her I’d built and sold a business.
I’m learning that you have to have to really love it to hang around in this game.
But I’m also learning. To bide my energy.
Many years ago, I was a dreamer.
I stood in the face of people telling me not to freelance.
They told me I wouldn’t be able to make a business of it.
They told me.
I didn’t have enough experience.
Today, I’ve been told I have no idea.
I’ve been told to go work for someone else.
I’ve been told I’m an idiot for making calls and asking questions till I build a name.
I’ve been told I WILL FAIL.
And to all this I say.
But more likely.
It will take time. There will be lessons. It will hurt at times.
Yes. Yes. Yes.
I have a feeling I might just make it out at the other end if I hang in long enough.
You? My friend. My reader.
If the is shooting you down for whatever it is you want, wherever it is you want to go. Just hang in there. Hold onto your own space.
Your own energy. And if you need a safe space. You’ll find it here.
A space that believes in you.
Believes in you coming out at the other end of it all.
Cheering you on,
