In Business

ten years after taking a leap of faith…

download (16)

Ten years ago, I started my company. To the horror of my Mother I left a secure job, had no real backup plan – only a gut feeling that where I was working wasn’t what was right for me. I owe a lot of thanks to a lot of people – my Mother included – because without her trepidation about my career move, I may not have taken the decision to resign so seriously. I also owe a lot to my Father – who I admired for his way of talking with people, conducting business, and treating people with kindness and respect – even in the times of pressure, stress and conflict. Anyways, perhaps one day I’ll write it all down – the story of how I chose to resign, how I started the company, and the growth and changes, but what I really wanted to share today is how grateful I am to everyone who have stood beside me, behind me, and in front of me – giving me a hand to hold when I may have stumbled – all of whom who have helped me to follow my passion of being a creative. On first glance, to those who don’t know the story, it may simply be an anniversary of a shop starting. But it’s truly more than that – as a reader of my blog, you likely know that I throw my creativity in a lot of places – my house included. So although it is ten years of my shop, it is also the ten year anniversary of me taking a leap of faith – and never looking back. So I raise my glass to all of you, and cheers those that follow their passions, and support those who also want to do the same. xoxoxo

Pssst. The shop is having a sale – and some free gift offers. Check out the newsletter for those details. 😉 

*It’s the job of a Mom to worry – when your eldest leaves what looks like a dynamite job for the unknown, I get why she was horrified. 😉
