The time has come for me to start sharing my thoughts, my experiences, and my everyday activities with you. Up until now, I've been holding back, too unsure that what I have to say really matters to anyone. But I have finally realized that what I have to say matters to me, and there is value in that. I am confident that I will benefit from documenting every step of my entrepreneurial journey, and I hope that there is someone out there who might benefit as well. I invite you to journey alongside me as I take my love of sewing, design, fabric, and travel and create a backpack business.
As I document my journey, you will come to see that there is nothing special about me, nor is this a blog about the glamorous side of running a business. Instead, you will see that I am just a college student facing the normal challenges of balancing social life, class, and extracurricular activities who for some crazy reason decided to start a backpack business in the midst of it all. I don't have any special qualifications to have started this business... the only difference between me and the next girl is that I decided to take action and turn my ideas into reality. And as much as I love what I am doing and am excited to watch my ideas turn into a tangible business, there have been - and I am sure will be many more - frustrating and difficult moments. I've spent money on things I didn't need, overdrawn my bank account, and completely failed to do things that I said I would do, just to name a few. Starting a business hasn't been easy but it sure has been an adventure. Each day I make the decision to keep pushing forward and journey on.
Stay tuned for more posts about the story behind my business!
