Five years…what can you accomplish in five years? Built a company? Move countries? Change your life?
Five year ago I decided to come back to my childhood dream. I was going make clothes. I believed I could make a leap.
Living in London made me feel like I could do anything. I didn’t need any formal training, Central St Martin’s degree or any validation. I had ideas and I needed knowledge how to execute.
I bought a course packed full of step by step instructions. How to source fabric, how to work with contractor, how to run a fashion business. I went through it diligently. I took a three months evening course in design and I loved it. What did I do when the courses ended?
Nothing. Nada. Not a thing.
I still try to answer myself why and I really don’t know. Maybe because the further I went into my current business, the more difficult it was to back away?
I keep thinking where would I be if I started five year ago. Now that I experienced for myself how much I’d accomplished in five years, I wish I had started taking small steps then. I could be so, so far by now.
The question is, where do I want to be in five years from now on?
