Bonus: Motivation

I was just reminded of an important detail I missed from Part 3 1/3 so I will give a quick bonus blog about what I use to push a little harder. My love and passion for coming up with the ideas and having my own business is enough in itself but early on in COVID I spoke to a few people for advice. One of my clients works in high end retail so I reached out to her for questions and to see if she knew anyone or any printers. She told me her friend is GREAT at starting up clothing lines or clothing companies, like million dollar companies, so of course I would love some advice.

As soon as I got her on the phone we were speaking two different languages. "You need at least $1,000,000 to start," "you need to book show rooms," "the idea isn't good," etc. Keep in mind she deals with high end fashion, not gym shirts with stupid graphics on them, so it's not like she was being a dick to me. We were just on different levels of thinking. In fact I use this analogy with myself...I only do weight training and I don't believe in traditional cardio. Me asking her how to start a gym shirt business is like a client asking me what treadmill should they buy. I tell them it's a waste of money. We were just on different levels of thinking.

HOWEVER, you bet your ass I will be calling her to say Hi once I get off the ground and running. And maybe one day I will book a show room in NYC lol.

Don't let anyone stop you from chasing your dreams, especially yourself! Now if you'll excuse me...I have to return some video tapes.
