It’s been a quite journey. Where do I even begin?
I was just soooo bored out of my mind working for a corporate office doing mundane design job 9-5. I didn’t wanna feel like I was slowly dying inside going to work everyday anymore, not especially after my son was born. My needs to spend as much time with my son as I could was so strong, so with a little push and major support from my boyfriend, I decided to start my own business. That sounds all cool and courageous but gurl, it wasn’t so easy!.
I thought I knew everything but boy, I was wrong. I knew how to develop products but that was about it. I literally didn’t know anything else. From sourcing to manufacturing, branding to marketing, and not to forget some legal stuff and list goes on!.
I haven’t had a full night sleep for the last two years (started around my third trimester). I got discouraged when things didn’t go the way I expected to. But I kept going and going and eventually I started to get the hang of it and I kinda started enjoying tackling obstacles. Oddly it became gratifying.
Who knows what is gonna happen next. But all I can say is that I have no regret because I gave my 100% and I will continue to do so. Through my journey, I met tons of great people and I learned a lot. I became a bit stronger and a lot smarter than I was a year ago.
Yes I’m sleep deprived but I’m living my life to the fullest. Someday I want to share all of my stories with my son. I want to guide him to be his best self, and not to forget to have fun along the way.
