Diary Of A Fashion Designer: The Turning Point

ZAZZLE2   There comes a time in every entrepreneur’s career when everything changes. You either bang or bust. Whether it’s for the good or the bad, you just don’t know until it happens. It seems surreal, but that moment is instrumental in molding the future of your brand. You’ll know where it’s going, as well as how, when and why.

TSXDH is at that moment right now. The wheels are already in motion, but the next seven days will pick up the speed of things. I keep asking myself if I’m ready, and the answer is yes. Then I venture into a little self doubt and wonder if I’m worthy of success, and the answer is yes. Then I face the ultimate question, what if I fail, and the answer is I won’t. From the initial conception of my dream, failure was just not even an option. As I’ve been putting this together over the years failing was not part of the plan, my vision was just too clear.

This is the turning point, I’m at the crossroads; with full realization of everything I worked for so close I can taste it. I did everything I said I was going to do, and consider myself successful, so now what’s next? It’s funny though, I always thought I’d have to see my first million  before I felt complete. You always think you know what success is going to look like, but it’s not all black and white. It’s something you have to experience on the inside. It’s a feeling that transcends material things and other people’s opinions. With that said, here’s a breakdown of what success looks like to me…

1. Money

I want to turn a profit. The bottom line is I want people to buy my products.

2. To be recognized as a brand.

When people see my logo, I want them to recognize it. When you see my artwork, clothes, or any products I create; I want you to recognize my brand identity, respect it, and then participate in my brand culture and embrace it as a lifestyle.

3. I want it all.

I want my career, my family, and stability.

So this is my turning point, this is it. This is the time to make shit happen. Nothing is going to stand in my way. As I look back and reflect, the naysayers and haters have always been around. Never in plain sight, but camouflaging and disguising themselves as friends. As I choose this path and leave the past behind, I also very politely tell those people to eat my dust. I’ve turned the corner, right onto the catwalk, and from there I’m going to take it all the way to the bank…stay tuned MUAH, aaand scene.
