It’s getting closer to the soft launch of online retailer Naked Truth and I am more nervous and yet excited than ever before. The team is coming together very nice and I must admit I love the fact that we are a diverse team of women from different nationalities and backgrounds. They are beautiful, smart, driven and very passionate about fashion and I can’t ask for a better team. I have run into a few hiccups along a way during the process of getting this site together but without obstacles it can never truly be a testimony (I will talk about that in a future blog). I learned that I cannot do it all by myself and that it takes a team to push a brand so I finally put my pride to the side and found an assistant. She is amazing and I must say very passionate about fashion. She does not realize that she has taken a load off of me. It is a full-time job to run every social media account, be in constant contact with the brand ambassadors and show them how to push a brand. Yes, I still step in and send things for the brand assistant to do each day because it’s still my company. I also know how hard it is doing things for someone else while trying to make sure it is perfect. She is not only in a major position but I am also teaching her things so when she does decide to branch out to start her own company, she can have the experience because that is something I didn’t have. In the meantime, I’m very humble and grateful to be working with some amazing women.
The reason I am writing everything that goes on behind the scenes with Naked Truth is because we always hear the success stories but we rarely hear how they got to that point. Well I’m here to provide the good, the bad and the ugly. The disappointments, shortcomings, struggles, mishaps etc. so you can see that this shit is really hard but yet if you are determined to be successful, that you have to persistent and never allow your struggles or any obstacle deter you from your passion and goals in life. Even when things go left and yes, they will, we must not stop living and enjoying life, because if you constantly dwelling on a situation that has happened then you are not progressing. You have to keep going no matter how hard it gets and no matter how much money you may have or how many people support you. So, this is not just my story, this is everyone story who is trying to make it with a dollar and a dream. We got this and God has already planned our lives, we are only here to tell it and live through it.
