Happy Monday everyone!! It feels so good to be back on track. I have so much content to share with you guys. Last week I took a few days off to take care of some personal issues and to organize my trip to L.A, but I’m back!!
I wanted to share with you guys one of the reasons why I travel often to L.A, as you guys know I own a small online boutique since last year. This has also become a full time job for me since I have to do the buying, marketing, advertising, customer service, packing orders… and so on. It’s cool to be everything you always wanted to be for your own business. My dream was to be a buyer and I would look online for buying jobs but unfortunately most companies had their HQ on the west coast. A bit far for me. I also didn’t have a degree so it was kind of hard to get into that market cold turkey.
It wasn’t till I starting working at Once Upon A skirt that things changed for me because I was given the opportunity to shop for the boutique. It was that opportunity that really defined what I wanted to do with my life. Of course my life took a mayor step back and I had to leave OUAS but I will always be thankful to Joanna the owner for helping me grow. I also did some shopping in 2013 for a small boutique, adding more experience to my adventure.
Kyrz’s Closet had some mayors changes this year as we are expanding. We even have a small warehouse where we ship all orders. Little by little the wish upon a star idea is now a small business reality. Sometimes it is really hard managing the boutique plus the blog, but I do have amazing partners that help me out as much as they can.
My next big step is really getting to know all the aspects of buying, I heard there is a cool seminar in Paris and I will be looking into for next year. I also want to hire one person to help out with maybe shipping and customer service issues, I noticed it’s one of the biggest focuses for us as we move forward. Of course another pop up is in the works as well.
I hope this blog can move someone to believe that if you really want it, you can achieve it. Nothing happens over night, you have to work for others and work hard. You have to go through some sleepless nights, sacrifice a lot. Invest a lot … and leave the rest to God. Prayer is so important during this process,because things will get tough. I’m talking about taking risks, a lot of them. This even means losing friends, but also becoming better at being you. I can say truly this blog has been a blessing for me and becoming a buyer was even a better blessing because everything I buy is with love and dedication. Since thanksgiving is only a few days away, I just want to Thank God each day for allowing me to use my talent and share it with you guys.
Hope you guys enjoy this look!! Xo, K
