As a fashion designer that works with a lot of different brands I have met a lot of people in the industry. Many people are afraid to try something new for fear of failure or fear of losing your job. I have lost jobs and brands so I have gotten over that fear. There is always another job or chance down the road. Always.
You are not a failure if you tried and it did not work out. I think you are a failure if you let fear hold you back and you never try anything.
However it took me less than one year and I was already planning my next brand. I did have to take a year off though, just to recover from the utter feeling of devastation after closing my first handbag brand I had worked so hard at for 5 years!
I like the challenge of building things. Having passion for your work is also one of the driving forces behind entrepreneurs. Right now I have a few projects on the back burning on the proverbial stove as I wait for certain things to fall into place. I don't have unlimited funding so I have to work for everything I get. Everything just takes a little longer because of that but it gives the project time to get refined. My own personal motto is: #keepgoiong #nevergiveup
