I’m not going to lie, creating your own clothing line is tough. There is a lot of struggle with figuring it out filled with lots of ups and downs. I am such a lover of graphic shirts and tees that I know what I want, the style of sweater I want and most importantly the quality of sweater. That said the sweaters I want to put my name on drive me crazy! They are way pricer than the average sweater, they involve shipping, duty, exchange rates, additional charges. It’s frustrating.
I love that I am creating something that makes my heart feel so proud of, but when you are just figuring it out its hard to not let those surprise costs and problems not totally deflate your energy and excitement. I know entrepreneurship is hard but man this is hard! I need my own personal cheerleading squad behind me. I need someone to say hey your doing great! Try doing this! I need a path to follow that will lead me to success.
Now writing that makes me feel better. I know there is no magic path going to lead me to greatness. That is up to me to find. I knew there would be ups and downs but seriously I had no idea there would be so many all together like this. I am so lucky and blessed that I have great friends who are my cheerleaders pushing me along the way.
What I do and I hope to inspire those going after their goals is this… No matter what industry you are in entrepreneurship is hard. It will push you to your limits. It will make you question everything. BUT WHAT IS YOUR WHY?
Why are you doing this? What do you want to achieve? How do you want to make people feel? How do you want to feel?
I am creating the A Beautiful Inspiration Clothing line because I want to INSPIRE. I want to EMPOWER. I want to bring HAPPINESS.
I want to achieve a successful loved clothing line that people love and feel good about wearing. I want you to wear it and look in the mirror and think
I AM THANKFUL. I AM BEAUTIFUL. I DESERVE. HAPPINESS IS MINE. YES I CAN.
I want to make people feel like they are loved. I want to make you feel like anything is possible. If I can start a clothing line by myself, in my home, meet and connect with the companies to help me spread my message then you can do anything you put your mind to too!
I WANT TO FEEL PROUD. I WANT TO FEEL EMPOWERED. I WANT TO FEEL HAPPY. I WANT TO TRAVEL WITH MY FAMILY. I WANT TO HAVE THE TIME TO SPEND WITH MY FAMILY. I WANT TO LIVE LIFE. I WANT TO FEEL LIKE I MADE A DIFFERENCE.
Writing this for me is therapeutic because it allows me to voice my deflated heart and change the perspective. It allows me to share my struggles. We all see the huge success stories but we never see the struggle behind the success. The story is what matters and I hope by sharing mine it will inspire you to share yours and build your story no matter what struggle you go through to get there. Nothing happens without struggle. Nothing happens without stress. We can do anything we dream of if we work for it. WORK FOR IT! DO IT! YES YOU CAN! I AM HERE TO SAY “YOU DESERVE IT!”
The NEW A Beautiful Inspiration Collection is launching this weekend at our Pop Up At Sweet Jolie, which is why my head is in a spiral. Check it out online here (available on sunday!) and thank you so much for all the love cheerleading and support I have received. It melts my heart, keeps me going and makes me tear up just writing this. I love you guys.
