A Fashion Story Goodbye 2016 Dream Big 2017I confess.
I kinda hate to see 2016 go. This was the year of implementation for me so I dived into several projects that I’d been working on and dreaming about for years. This was the last year of a five-year plan I began in 2011, one that included several entrepreneurial ventures. I’m happy to report that the LiWBF team successfully implemented/launched each venture in our five-year plan. Happy dance.
However, getting launched was the easy part. 2017, the year of action, means taking charge of daily productivity and making sure we take pertinent steps each day to help bring those projects to life. I’ve narrowed down the plans for LiWBF’s expansion and the game plan now includes four ventures: ambassadorship & the LiWBF Fab Five App, fashion & beauty boutique (StraightUpEve Cosmetics coming in 2017!), publishing, and subscription services.
Thanks to all our fabulous readers and LiWBF’s most loyal fans, I was able to pull all four of these ventures into an actual format for a business plan and am now in the process of reaching out to and speaking with mentors who’ll help lift us to the next level. Even though we suffered a few setbacks, none of our progress would have been possible without your support.
There’s so much more to be accomplished in 2017. The world opens her arms to those who open themselves up to her beauty and grace. LiWBF’s message instructs folks to design a life you love by becoming an enigma. That’s the essence of the Agent of Fabulosity. And that’s the message we captured in all our spinoff ventures.
In this segment of A Fashion Story, I chose to wear items from brands whose creators embodies the spirit of the Agent of Fabulosity. These fashion houses came from the hard work of folks like you and me, women and men who worked their way up to the top in spite of their small bank accounts. What each entrepreneur exhibited was big visions and the much-needed persistence that made it easier to take the small steps.
