So I have been a little absent on my blog the last few weeks, but I have been so busy with Christmas, Family and New Years that I haven’t taken the time to write about whats been going on in my life.
Well if any of you follow me on Instagram, you would already know that I have decided to start my own business, a consignment store. Even though the process may be a little bit easier then starting your own clothing store – having to buy inventory and such, this consignment business is just as hard – having to find consignors, take pictures and get enough followers on Instagram and my Facebook page to actually drive traffic to my account. But its all worth it. I am so happy with what I am doing that I just had to write about it.
I have always been the type of girl who wasn’t sure what she wanted to do. This may sound a little unattractive, but let me finish. I always found it easier to just go with the flow for work, instead of starting a business – just work for someone else and they can have the headaches of running and operating a business – while I can leave at the end of the day and my job leaves with me when the clock strikes 5. However, in the past year and half I was working for someone who owned a consignment store, and I saw the satisfaction she was given when we sold someone else’s preloved goods. I wanted to bring this happiness and satisfaction to my own life. Thus, I quit my job an began “Round Two Toronto”. With some help of my own closet and my friends, I have grown a wide selection of inventory – in a short amount of time. I am starting to see the benefits of working for myself pay off already! Yes there are days when I just want to stay in the house and be boring or run around doing fun errands – but I know that if I don’t work one day – it will show through up in my business. I need to stay persistent and always been out networking, talking with friends, posting on Instagram and engaging with followers. This has made me realize that what I TRULY put into my business WILL PAY OFF!
Work Hard and You’ll see Results, Don’t work and You’ll see Results (however these will be negative ones) I want to see the positive ones!
I wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR and MAY ALL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE IN 2018!!
