I made a decision last year to get the hell out of COMFORT ZONE & to STOP SETTLING... Deep down I KNEW I was:⠀ ⠀ 😐 Unsatisfied with my job 😑 Unhappy with the results 😑 Unsatisfied in a toxic relationship (thanku next) 😥 Knew deep down this is NOT what I wanted... I had this desire that, I KNOW there is more to life! When you settle, it means you're COMFORTABLE with what you have even if you DON'T necessarily like it there... ⠀ 😅For me, working in corporate feels like settling. My job isn't bad or anything, I have learnt SO MUCH from corporate, but I feel CAGED. Imnot meant to work in a 9-5 forever... I desire more creativity & freedom! 😅 For me, A complacent relationship was settling... Investing to much time building someone up and putting myself on the back burner... UNSATISFIED isn't for me & I let it go for too long because it was comfy... ThankU next ⠀ Can you relate? I get you, it’s hard to stop settling when everything is so safe & comfy! A steady pay check, Career path, Paid vacas, Sick leave, All the benefits... ⠀ And it’s easy to give up on building your own business & desired life because in the first year you’re going to experience:⠀ ⠀ 🙏People hoping you fail including Fams & 'friends' 🙏Experiencing real failures! owch 🙏Crickets (Nobody CARES)⠀ 🙏HOURS invested before you see ANY returns 🙏Sacrificing fun for investing time into growing you and your business ⠀ I pledged to myself that I wouldn’t settle any longer... Complacency is NOT where I want to be. I don't want to fall into the trap of being comfortably unsatisfied any damn longer... Plus its so fuckn exciting as an entrepreneur! This year I stepped the hell up, I have incredible purpose in this world and if I don't step up, I'm robbing the world of greatness... ⠀ Drop your fav emoji if you refuse to settle! 🚀

I was a talented young woman full dreams and prospects but I had one problem. I was shy, introverted and would rather hide behind my machines and let others take the stage. ~~~ Everyone around me were doing something great with their lives, I envied them. I wanted to be like them but fear wouldn't let me be great. Fear of rejection, fear of being laughed at, fear of not being enough, fear of failing. Fear! Fear! Fear! I lived like this for a long time. ~~~ Until one day I became tired, tired of hiding, tired of doubting myself, I wanted more from life. I wanted to be more, I wanted to explore my talent to the fullest. I suddenly had a great desire to be everything God designed me to be. ~~~ There was only one thing I had to do, I had to level up my confidence. I knew I was talented and creative, I only had to believe in myself. I had to stop doubting myself! So I decided to take serious action. ~~~ First thing I did was to define what confidence meant to me, what my life purpose is. The more I sought answers to my questions the more I felt motivated to believe in myself. ~~~ With my newly defined purpose I started to fire and hire accordingly, I surrounded myself with a team of supporters or cheerleaders. People of like minds, same goals and vision. ~~~ Soon I stopped comparing myself with others. I stopped criticizing and doubting myself. I wasn't afraid to take on challenges anymore. I believed in myself! ~~~ Why am I sharing this? You see dear fashionpreneur, believing in one's self is key to a successful fashion career. For as long as you believe it, you can achieve it! . . . Happy New Week! Until I come your way Simply be more! ✨ Adedamola

They are so excited. Now to get back to work for this lunch break becomes more expensive. 2 new blogs to write up this afternoon. Let's do this!!
Sunday Love! Stop And Smell The Roses. The Beauty Is Not In Their Style, But In Their Growth. It All Starts From Planting A Seed, And AA They Are Fed And Nurtured, They Begin To Bloom. Just Like In Life And Business. Feed The Mind.
Happy Father's Day to my hunk of a husband! When we were dating I had NO idea how much he loved kids. He was great with my niece, but I didn't really think twice about that because she was the first niece in the family and EVERYONE was obsessed with her! . But then we moved to an apartment complex with AWESOME neighbors with awesome kids, and I KID you not, every time we'd go over to hang out, Abe was hanging with the kids and not the adults. He would wrestle them and read to them and talk to them and play with them. Kids just LOVED Abe, would call him their best friend and I would even get a little jealous! . I always wondered if he would be that same way with our own kids -- and turns out he was and is!! He is so playful and so fun and so imaginative and just all around REALLY great with children. I'm really lucky to have a man like him as the father of my girls! He fills in where I can't and these girls just adore him. Happy Father's Day hot stuff! . . . . .
Let’s have some Sunday night fun 😋⠀ ⠀ I’ll give you three, on theme! ⠀ 1. I once was the queen of a LARPing guild 👸🏼 ⠀ ⠀ 2. If five people die in my Irish bloodline, I would become duchess of a small area in Ireland 🏰 ⠀ ⠀ 3. I am sixth cousins with Miley Cyrus. Which used to be extremely cool. But now I’m more excited about being fifth cousins with Billy Ray #oldtownroad 🐴
You'll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path.✌🏼

There are two gifts we should give our children; one is roots and the other are wings. ❤️ I gifted my father and father-in-law these keychains today. The front is etched with a tree and birds flying to represent the roots and wings they’ve given us, and the backs etched with our handwriting. Keepsakes for sure. ❤️
Pure Joy!

Build trust with your audience by being vulnerable.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, what’s this got to do with business we hear you say? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, every time you talk about authentic issues from the heart, you’ll attract more likeminded people who will connect with your brand from an emotional standpoint.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This doesn’t mean you have to express your deepest darkest secrets, it just means you talk human to human about things that matter to your brand and the people within in. Then not only do you speak about things that matter, you’ll speak with conviction.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, what type of things do you talk about?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This one really depends on the issues that you find align with your brand values. Though what we’ve realised is that issues we feel very hesitant about discussing are usually the most successful in regard to generating a great conversation, because in the end, that’s what it’s all about.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What we’ve seen over the last few years are brands voicing their opinions and talking about issues that align with their brand. By showcasing vulnerabilities they end up with a much stronger, loyal audience that share the same values. By doing this it also helps to connect with your audience from an emotional point of view, and emotion plays a huge part in the psychological aspect of buying. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today, consumers expect brands to voice their opinions on bigger issues. What topics are you passionate about?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #womenwithambition#brisbanebusiness#businesschicks#womenhelpingwomen#femalefounders
Strong and silent type?⠀ ⠀ Nah. Apparently, I’m into the extroverted and chatty, makes a lot of cheesy jokes, likes to think out loud type. ⠀ ⠀ And I wouldn’t have it any other way, even when it drives me crazy as an introvert (though if he could chew more quietly, that would be great).⠀ ⠀ Happy Father’s Day to my sweetie, co-parent, and best friend. ⠀ ⠀ #happyfathersday2019⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
10 years ago this beautiful person came into my life. She is stunning inside and out. She is caring, thoughtful and always puts others first. She’s funny, witty and knows how to show her talents off. She’s strong, determined, tenacious and confident. She’s empowering and inspires me daily. This girl is going places. Most importantly she’s extremely happy. So proud of the girl you are Connie Rose and I’m in awe of you daily.
I’m an enneagram 3. ✨ ——— As a 3, I’m referred to as “an achiever.” My personality is focused on accomplishments & success. I have a tendency to put my career or my image up on a pedestal. I care about structure, personal goals and the future. 🌈 ———— That’s why it can be so hard for me to say yes to spontaneous decisions. That’s why it’s a challenge for me to let someone else take the lead. That’s why I struggle with putting down my knock-it-out lists. ———— BUT...just because I relate to the enneagram 3 more than any other number, doesn’t mean it completely defines me & that’s the same for you too. You are such a unique person, that you can’t be put into a box! You’ll ALWAYS be able to change & take initiative to grow in areas that you may struggle. 🌼 ——— My husband spontaneously planned a double date for last night & it honestly freaked me out. I already had a plan for the day & now he wanted to take the lead & execute a date night?! 🤯 Well y’all, as you can tell by the photo - I truly had a blast. I put away my 3 tendencies for the evening & allowed myself to have fun with our friends without putting unnecessary pressure on myself to be spending my time doing something else. I allowed myself to enjoy being spontaneous. 🙋♀️ ——— Friend, no matter what number you associate with the most, I want you to know that stepping outside of your “comfort zone” might make you feel insecure at first, but you are going to be just fine. The only way for us to grow out of our bad habits or natural tendencies is to push ourselves into new, scary & even intimidating situations until one day, we can smile back at how much we’ve grown. 💛 ——— What’s your enneagram number? I want to know so share below! ⬇️⬇️⬇️
