2) When was your lightbulb moment?
I was always passionate about fashion. My entire life I strived to find pieces that were unique and different for myself. I didn’t want to dress like everyone else, I wanted to wear clothes that were personally inspiring. I found myself always reading about fashion, watching Paris and Milan runway shows, attending Toronto’s Fashion week each year. I certainly had invested my 10,000 hours. One day while vacationing I walked into a quaint boutique. A women at the helm, styling a client with the most interesting assortment – and that was my lightbulb moment! My community needs a boutique like this. I knew there were other women out there like me, that sought out fashion that was different, unique and didn’t have to get on plane or drive hours to find it . My community needs a fresh, new thoughtfully curated collection of clothes and accessories and guess what ? Im going to bring it to them!
3) Three words of advice…
Follow your North Star Set your North Star Goal and don’t give up. Don’t give up even if your first path doesn’t lead you there. Be open to changing your strategy and continually tweaking along the way. Giving yourself some flexibility along the way will help you overcome barriers and keep you moving forward.
