Follow your instincts!

This picture is of a church in my mother's home town in Ecuador.  It holds a special meaning in my heart not only because of it's beauty but also because it's a reminder of where I come from.  It reminds me of how my parents followed their instincts and built a life for us without ever forgetting where they come from.  I truly value their strength and I hope to pass it on to my daughters as well.

As some of you may know, my previous career was in sales in the fashion industry.  Throughout my six years there, I sold different brands ranging from Levis to Lucky to Juicy Couture.  It was a very nice time in my life. I met a lot of wonderful people and learned a little bit about a lot of different things. However, I always had a nagging feeling that something was missing.  Deep down I always knew I wanted to run my own business.

On a job interview one time, I was asked, "How do you sell something that doesn't sell itself?"  And my instinct was to say, "Why would I ever want to do something like that?"  And today, I am following my instincts and pursuing my dream.  Today, I am delighted that I am in control of providing quality service and quality products so that I never have to answer that question again.  I put my heart and soul into everything I provide my clients not only because it's the right thing to do, but also because my clients also become my friends.

I don't have all the answers by any means but if I try to pay attention to what my heart is telling me at least once in a while, I think I'll be ok!

Happy Thursday!
