I've lived for years with both feet firmly planted in my own way.
It's been my dream since I was 16 to have my own clothing company; yet there was always some excuse as to why I couldn't just do it.
The more time that went by the further I dug in my heels, what happened to the confidence I once had? Was I really ok with failing before I even started? Deep down what was truly holding me back? I started to realize not only was I afraid of trying and failing, but I was just as afraid of success. It was a strange revelation and one I couldn't understand.
Much of my life I've been plagued with an overwhelming sense of responsibility to everyone but myself. The turning point for me was participating in the debut of MadRunway, a Madison fashion show highlighting local talent. It was liberating and such an amazing feeling to do what I feel I'm meant to do. I finally mustered the courage to quit my day job and give it a go as an entrepreneur. Doing something solely for myself is such a foreign feeling and one that will take a while to accept. I feel I'm being very selfish. Needless to say I've got some internal hurdles to overcome as I wind my way through being my own boss. But I'm lifting my feet. I'm moving forward. I'm working to build my "American dream".
Wish me luck!

Lift your feet and move forward. Own your successes and failures and never look back
