Starting my own company has been challenging and rewarding
I started my company early this year. It has been a great journey. I had to change my attitude and concentrate entirely on solutions. It was tough in the beginning but soon I realised there is always a solution, even though things do not always go as initially planned. The word "impossible“ does not exist in my vocalbury any longer.
I decided to act on my dream with persistance by throwing myself into the unknown and learn as I do things I have never done before. In this I have sought advice and assistance from people I admire.
What I have learned in the past few months is that stepping out of the comfort zone is both challenging and rewarding. I realized early that if I want to succeed in business I had to have the courage to seek help. The effect of asking for help is amazing and the positive response from people has often surprised me. People want to help and I find that I am definitely not alone.
I have a passion for my job which I think is crucial to succeed though passion alone does not guarantee success. I truly like the following quote by Joseph Campbell:
"Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls“.
When building my company and the brand Dimmblá I wanted to present clear values that reflect my own believe. My company values are: gracefulness, power and integrity. I believe a personal power resides in all of us and if we have great faith in ourselves we can achieve our greatest dreams. In my everyday live I look for ways to accomplish what I want with clear focus. Integrity is an important value and I believe that being true and consistent in all actions is crucial in business. With my design I want to emphasize the gracefulness and beauty of every woman.
I have had the privilege to seek help from talented people who have helped me through the last months in building my company. With their help I have managed to create a brand and a clothing design which I‘m very proud to present.
My vision and goals for the future are both challenging and exhilarating at the same time – as they should be.
Next Saturday my very first collection will be officially launched and available in stores.
I am extremely grateful for all the support and the compliments I have received for my first collection. I am also deeply touched by the support I have received through Karolina Fund. The project is open for pledges until 31st of December and I would appreciate if you could share the site so that the project will be fully funded.
I am very excited for 2014 and I hope you will enjoy my Northern Lights collection.
All my best,
CEO & designer
