An Alternate Path Towards My Dreams•
Posted on July 05 2019
"Find your road"
The road that led me to where I am today had some unplanned, surprise stops along the way. While entrepreneurship had always been something I wanted to pursue, starting an online boutique was not my initial dream.
In June of 2017, I auditioned for a business-genre reality show, called Girl Starter. The plan: to help me financially build my dream (at the time) cupcake business, gain exposure for my idea, and have the encouragement and support of other female leaders to pursue my aspirations. The result: the show was canceled, and my once-loved passion for baking died shortly thereafter. Insert surprise face.
Fast forward to today, and I have found my true passions: fashion and female empowerment! I am now the proud owner of Sweet On You Boutique, where I have the opportunity every day to help women feel confident in their style and, ultimately, in their skin. Owning a business has always been the goal for me, and I've waited a long time for this moment. I guess some of the most extraordinary paths can’t be discovered without getting lost.
Here’s what I learned throughout this journey. The road to your dreams may change, and your final destination may not even be the one you initially set for yourself. You may face obstacles and challenges, and even take a different route altogether, and when it’s all said and done, it is from these same obstacles and challenges and paths that you will gain the most knowledge and experience.
So, when you’re in the midst of a roadblock and you’re “recalculating” (have I “driven home” the puns yet, eye wink), never stop believing in yourself. Keep working towards your dreams. Embrace the bumps in the road. I promise you can do it!
