Welcome to “Here / Now With”
When I realized that Here / Now was connecting me into this cosmos of driven, successful and positive women, I immediately wanted to save my interactions somewhere where I could repeatedly go for inspiration and guidance. As a first-time entrepreneur, these women, their energies, and insights, kept me hopeful and steadfast, despite unexpected challenges.
“Here / Now With” is my passion project to share the stories of women trailblazers, with the small hope that they will inspire you like they did me.
I truly appreciate you following Here / Now’s journey as we evolve and grow. Thank you so much! And I hope you enjoy these interviews as much as I loved creating them.
Be Here / Now (I couldn’t resist, ha!)
Comfort leads to confidence. Dress it up with a little something unexpected, and now, you’ve got their attention.
There are literally too many to share (maybe someday over a drink…or two), but I will never forget my first buyer’s meeting with a retailer. It was a month into launching the brand and because this was a side hustle, I had to take the meeting during a lunch break. I didn’t know what a linesheet was. I didn’t know what my wholesale prices were. I was clueless with a shopping bag filled with sneakers and I’m pretty sure I called my mom crying afterwards. But, with the help and support of so many amazing friends, I somehow managed to deliver my first wholesale shipment of 200 pairs of pompom sneakers two months later. That was March 2016. It feels like ages ago, but it’s amazing how much we’re capable of learning if we put our minds to it.
Think less. Do More. By being fearless (and a little naïve), I was able to take the first step into the happiest and biggest achievement of my life..so far!
