Happy New Year!!!
I want start of by saying that this isn't my typical "Random Wednesday" post, but I thought since it's the start of the new year, the timing couldn't be better.
This time of year, everyone and their mommas are making resolutions, whipping out their planners, trying to get organized and doing a little goal setting.
I am no different. Well, I guess I am, sort of . I have never been one to make resolutions because, well, I just don't stick to them. I have a planner, but haven't written a single thing in it yet. I am not the most organized person and like to think I can keep it all together in my head.
Here is where the "I am no different part" comes into play. I have set a goal for myself for 2013. It's a big one that has been floating around in my head for quite some time. I have just been sitting on the fence and nervously twiddling my thumbs.
Why haven't taken the leap yet? I am scared of failure. I am worried I will disappoint people, including myself. I am nervous that nobody will be interested.
So, what's this goal of mine?
I feel like I need to give you some sort of background first.
I got my degree in marketing and was a marketing manager in the home building industry for 12 years. My last couple of jobs ended up being complete and utter nightmares. And last April, I began my sabbatical from the corporate world. I now help Ross with his company and do more things with my girls than I ever could do while I was working full time.
But, I feel like there is more out there for me. Something I have a true passion for. Something that as been part of "me" since I was a little girl. Something that doesn't feel like work. Something that I think I am actually good at. Something that inspires others. Something that I have always wanted to do, but have never had the guts. The guts until now. This is THE year that I WILL make THIS happen. Come hell or high water.
So, what is it?
It's to become a personal stylist and wardrobe consultant. It could be as small as helping someone pick out an outfit for a special event or as large as going into someone's closet and putting outfits together for them.
Starting this blog has put a fire in me that I haven't had in a long time. It's given me the confidence and drive to want to do something more than just post my own personal style. I want to help other woman find comfort in their closets, with their wardrobes and their style.
I think a little voice in the back of my mind was telling me that if I actually posted this, that I would have to make it happen and it would hold me accountable.
I am scared to death and still ironing out the details.
My goal is to do this personally and virtually. I don't want to be tied down to just the Austin area. My ultimate plan is to be able to help woman all over, no matter the location.
This is the part where I need your honest opinion and help.
I want to know what you would be willing to pay for such a service, or if you would even be willing to pay at all. I REALLY could use some feedback. I have a few ideas, but before I get the ball rolling, I was hoping to get your thoughts and opinions with the surveys below. Also, please feel free to leave a comment on what you think. I mean, am I out of my mind?
Thank you so much!! I value what you guys think, so please be honest. I promise, my feelings won't be hurt. Okay, maybe they will, but I will love you regardless!
And this is getting posted on my bathroom mirror to remind myself to get my booty in gear and just go for it.
