We have invested over 6 figures into self education and hired mentors, gone to masterminds and hired coaches for mindset, Social Media, health and business and taken many courses online. Investing thousands of hours to get us to where we are today.
I, Krista left the co operate world in 2014 after 14 years, and started a very successful online boutique that reached 6 figures within the first year. While at home with my young children, using my Cell phone and Fb (organically.i might ad)
The first two years was all trial and error. I knew nothing about business, nothing about sourcing, nothing about social media. But I had a vision and the ability to become resource full.
It was not until I started investing in mentors, coaches and masterminds that I realized that I had created something all on my own that was very successful just from pure vision, passion and resource fullness that was changing peoples lives every day. Women started to feel beautiful again. I created a movement around confidence, i showed my struggles i shared my journey as i went. It was never about the clothes guys. It was always about inspiring others to be their best self and to see that anything is possible. Even when you think the odds are against you. (I only have a high school diploma by the way.)
2 years into my business after starting to invest in myself, my business was ready to explode at the seams. I had to take a step back and think... was this really the industry i wanted to go all in on....Clothing? I realized that I had fallen in love more with the strategy and helping people grow their business' so that little Suzie could go to that summer camp if she wanted. So that mom could stay home with her kids and still have a successful business from home, so that family who's child has fallen ill at the Ronald Macdonald house who is about to loose their family business doesn't have to sacrifice their business when life happens.
So, in 2018 we decided to go all in together. Ed sold his ad agency , I closed the boutique and here we are today.
I often wonder if I had never taken that first step and invested in that first course, or mentor would I be where I am today? I don't doubt that I would not be here someday , but one thing I know for sure. Is that it would not have happened this fast!
Man, When I look back if someone had held my hand from the beginning to show me the way, it would have been so much easier. That was not the case for me, in fact that has not been the case for a lot of people, but let me tell you something . It can be the case for you now.,,
My point is this, with experience their is knowledge. With knowledge, there is power. You have a moral obligation to share that with the rest of the world . It is the first step to creating your very own LEGACY.
