2023, Chapter 3- Intro to new blog

Happy New Year <3

I know I sound like everyone else when I say it feels like just yesterday we were in the thick of the pandemic. Time travels differently these days... I am often in disbelief that I've made it this far... I know I reek of confidence, but there's moments I just feel... lucky... I know I deserve this though.

First I want to say, thank you to everyone who has been a part of this growth in my entrepreneur journey. NOTHING goes unnoticed or unappreciated. Advice from mentors, likes and shares.. to purchases and outstanding reviews from customers + word of mouth referrals; It truly takes a village and ill be damned if I make it seem like I did this truly on my own...

For 2023 I want to get back into blogging.. While my instagram has a good balance of personal and work life, I want a designated space to share more about the behind the scenes, the struggles... the milestones and just all things optical related...

This first blog post is really random - and I think I want to continue to run it in a spontaneous way. You never know what you're going to get from these, but you will most likely enjoy them and I hope you're able to take a gem or two from what I have to share... Y'all know my ADHD is real and maybe I should share what its like being a solo entrepreneur and neurodivergent lol... IDK....

I'm often told I'm an inspiration to many people. There are so many folks who want to own a business and they come to me wondering how I did it... Its kinda wild... You wouldn't imagine how many times I have felt like I'm not doing enough... Constantly fighting the urge to compare myself to others and feeling less than because I don't have the funds to do it how they are. Yet and still, there's multiple people rooting for me and watching my story unfold with inspired eyes... How did I do this??

Im impulsive, crazy.. but extremely motivated, dedicated and relentless. I manifest and make things work for me. I am a magnet to everything I want in life and while its not just handed to me - I do seek out direction from guides and figure out ways to receive the results I want while living in my means and not below or above.

We all have bigger dreams and goals for ourselves.... Its how we get there that really matters. How I did this isn't the way I would recommend others doing it and I say this all the time. But it has worked for me...

I did this with absolutely no plan... Being impulsive is a blessing and a curse. When I have an idea or even a thought that I can do something, I just go for it... and if I'm really into it, I'm fixated and I can't stop thinking about it. Have you ever wanted something so bad that you think about it every day? Thats me and my business. Not a day goes by that I'm not thinking about it... And I think with this fixation, I have been able to stay consistent and work though every single roadblock... the vision requires focus and determination to get through everything in order to reach all successes.

Lets be real though... Everything takes time! I can't tell anyone the right way to do it, cause my path was paved for me personally...I CAN tell you what this has required for me within the past (almost) 3 years though. Patience... many risks (in my case) and.. has taken a lot of lessons, wrong turns and mistakes. I guess when I type this out, I'm able to see that this is simply the journey to the bigger goal and its MY JOURNEY no one elses... 

I can list my unordered steps to you on how I've come this far but id rather invite you on a self journey of discovering why you want to own your own business. Who do you want to cater to... How do you want your business to run and how much are you willing to risk to get there...(?)

I hope that I can continue to inspire y'all. I never want to be looked at with envious eyes... I want to continue to be there for all of you who have BOSS dreams too... Please don't forget that there's room for us all to create a unique eyewear experience... You just have to find your path.

xxx Cant wait to share more with y'all this year.
