We have a new business woman of the week and this young woman is pretty amazing!! Lovely is a blogger and clothing designer. That little lady is most definitely going places and it’s a pleasure to watch her grow and take her blog to the next level. So please, checkout her full interview and enjoy…
1- Can you tell my readers a little bit about yourself ?
Thank you Cindy for this great opportunity. I go by the name of “Lovely” co-founder of MaJAc ( mah-djak). I was born and raised in a small low- income neighborhood in St Marc, Haiti. I’m a beginner seamstress hoping one day i’ll become a fashion designer which is the goal and i’m also a blogger.
2- What’s a normal day like for you?
Hmmm… A normal day? Well, my day varies since i work overnight, but a normal day for me is promoting my blog on social media, praticing my sewing skills, running errands and sleeping.
3- What inspired you to start your business/blog?
I always have interest in fashion and I always want to be unique. I have always told my surroundings how one day I would like to have my own clothing line, but I never had the courage to take that leap of faith. One day, my fiance (co-founder also) created a facebook page and I told him that I wasn’t ready then he asked me ” when will you be ready?”. I finally took that leap of faith after I started blogging.
4- What are some of the challenges you face as a woman in business
One of my biggest challenges is I am a perfectionist. So, because of that it causes me to have self-doubt.
5- Running a business is not easy how do you stay motivated?
Stay Motivated? My passion for sewing and blogging plus some of my surroundings keep me motivated ( family and some friends)
6-What are three things that no one tells you about being an entrepreneur?
– No one ever advises on the challenges that i’ll be facing
-Not everybody will believe in your dreams
– Your surroundings ( peers) will not support you 100%
7- What advice would you give to your much younger self?
There’s nothing with being a failure. Be patient and believe in yourself.
8-What’s Next For you and your business?
– I’m learning my blog every single day. Right now i’m working so hard to get sponsors and have a lot of traffics. As for MaJAc, i can’t wait to make my dream comes true because i wan’t to be recognized as one of the best fashion designers in USA.
9- What are some of your favorite inspirational quotes?
“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great”[ Zig Ziglar]
10-Any words of advice for aspiring entrepreneurs?
“Get out there and face your fears to achieve your goals”
Finish this sentence; I am greatness because… I was made unique.
As always, thank you sooooo much for hanging with ME, here’s to bettering ourselves, being great and doing GREAT THINGS!!! #IAMGREATNESS
