“What it easy?”, people have asked me. Hell no!
“Was it expensive to develop a brand?”, people ask. “, emotionally and physically speaking, of course!” I reply.
“Was it worth it?” Absolutely!
“Was it impossible?” I ask you in return.
In hindsight, it obviously wasn’t impossible in the literal sense, because here we are. If I had a cent for every time a “reality obstacle” was pointed out to me or popped up at the worst possible moment, I would have been wealthy enough to retire early (or, more probably, I would have developed more cosmetic lines). I was told how an “unimaginable” amount of money is needed to start and develop a new business. “A mountain” of information, knowledge, experience and know-how was essential before a single person could even begin to dream of creating a brand, much less dare reach out to international markets.

Dare to Dream and the whole world will Dream with you. Life works in strange ways, the wonderful system of human interaction may be chaotic but if there is one thing I learned, be not afraid. As one of my favourite authors described: When you dream of jumping out in the open, sometimes you wake up before you hit the ground and truly enough sometimes you crash. But sometimes you fly.
(Neil Gaiman, The Sandman)
Until next time,
Lots of love,
