How did you determine what you were passionate about?
My passion for fashion came very naturally to me. I realized I loved fashion as a teenager. Whenever I was around fashion, something inside me would come alive.
What challenges did you you have to overcome to pursue your dreams?
I have had to endure personal doubts about whether I could make it as a designer without educational training. (Institutional setting) I have also had to deal with the frustrations of the day to day obstacles that arise as I attempt to design the most fabulous outfits for my customers.
How do you keep yourself level headed and focused?
How do you stay focused and productive in your area of passion? My faith in God keeps me grounded. I also I read a lot of fashion magazines and fashion blogs to keep me inspired.
What would be your advice to future entrepreneurs who may be afraid to step out and pursue their passion?
My advice is be prayerful about your passion, and once you have peace about it go for it even if you are still afraid. It's never easy stepping out on something new or starting a business but we have to take a step even if you are shaking while you are taking that step! That first step determines everything.
