I’ve spent the last 30 out of 40 days in my new home away from home, Los Angeles, closing a huge chapter of my life. I’ve dedicated the past 7 years to stretching my reach to see first hand what I’m made of. I’ve battled with fear, courage, will, failure, love, success, resilience, faith, grit, worth and vulnerability head on.
There were 3 things I said I’d never do when I started Sweet & Spark and I’ve done every single one of them; open a store, sell women’s clothing and move to Los Angeles (okay, I didn’t technically move to LA but I sure am spending a lot of time there and liking it more than I thought I would). Even though, since day one, I’ve known that I’m on the right path, it wasn’t until I could see not one but, two S&S stores with my own eyes that I believed in my own success. It’s funny how we have to learn things sometimes.
I’m back home in San Francisco as a new woman; my perspective on business and life has completely changed. It feels like I got a promotion at my own company, and overall my mind & body just feels calmer. I feel like I can rest now amidst all the chaos, uncertainty and possibility. Everything is messy and yet, perfect just the way it is.
This next chapter isn’t just about me anymore. It’s exactly what I’ve longed for it to be and I’m excited to invite others to join me on the ride. Aside from leading our incredible and growing team, I don’t know exactly what this means yet but I know that my soul is pulling me to share more so I started this a little blog to see where it takes me. I want nothing more than to lift others up with me and hope that you are open to some vulnerable posts to come.
