This is a new experience for me; In the past I have encountered business women who don't want to help other women in business, as if they lose something by sharing. It's like everyone feels they are taking a test and need to cover their papers. The women in the class are different; They are very open, gracious, helpful and supportive to each other. We all want everyone to make it and be successful.
For the first time, I really feel like I am going to make it. I am more corageous and have more confidence in my dreams than I have ever had. I actually see my fashion line as a reality, a physical thing. Going through the process and knowing what it takes to actually start this business, and that I have what it takes to start this business, is amazing.
Our last class is next week. While I feel like I have been given the tools I need to take some big steps, and it's pretty awesome to be able to say "I believe", I am going to miss seeing these ladies every week. I wish them all as much success as I want for myself and I thank them all, especially Danielle, for all the knowledge and love they've dropped on me.
In thinking of where I want to go career wise, and where I want to take this blog, all roads lead to fashion. For the last few years I've not enjoyed my career as a trader; I thought I would, but I didn't. It's as interesting as I thought it would be, but no other career than designing will make me happy so I'm going all in. My job ended about a year ago. I looked for work but not finding a new job I've decided to forge through the fear and do what I should have been doing all along. Going forward, this blog will be a record of my journey to the career of my dreams: A Fashion Designer. I will still write some on beauty and plus size happenings but it will mostly be about my road to the place I want to be.
Whether you love where you are, or are on a journey, be fabulous now.
