The drive: What challenges have you overcome?
Being able to be noticed in such a full market has been challenging, and finding what makes us unique and really pushing that. Also, just generally starting up, with the fact that I didn’t plan this in any way, shape or form. I really had to knuckle down and work to get it to where it’s at now (thank you c-section recovery time).
For better or worse: What are the pros and cons of running your own business?
Pros and cons of running your own business… hmmm, there are so many.
The pros are working for yourself and doing something you’re really passionate about, along with the possibility of being more financially secure, and all the things you learn along the way.
The cons are the man hours, the creative blocks that can happen, and being your one and only employee (woman of many hats).
There is a huge amount of learning that you do as your business grows, not only in terms of book keeping but also in terms of marketing and reaching the right people. If you have the motivation and right support system, it’s alllll worth it!
Hopes and dreams: What next?
Store Front, Store Front, Store Front! With having so many projects underway at the moment, our top dream is to have a store front. We have some way to go first, and really want to make sure we continue to emphasise and follow through with our mission of revitalising diversity.
