I sit near fireplace, its winter outside, a little bit cold and I am ready to tell my story. I am 24 years old women from a little country in Europe, now I live in UK for about one year. I love live here, there is a wonderful nature, lot of places where you can be by yourself in mountains near lakes. But let me explain everything from beginning.
My family was never a rich, my mum was a nurse and my father was a policeman, we lived in a house with my grandparents. My mum always trying to create a lovely house atmosphere. But sometimes we lived very poor. I remember when I wanted to buy a new jacket and we together with my mum have to compiled money from savings. I learn how to count and save money. And then I saw this situation in our house, that my parents have to live from payday to payday, I remembered when I thought that I have to help them.
So when I was about 10-12 years old I started to made a decoupage, my mum bought to me a decoupage kit and with my sister we started to made a jewelry. It was about 1 or 2 years journey. We mad earrings from beads and decoupage and trying to sell it. I cannot say that it was very profitable but we made profit from one earring about 1-2£ (exchange from my country currency). But fashion is always a changeable thing and day after day we got fewer and fewer buyers. But this feeling left deep in my heart. I understand that I can make money even I was just a child. And in this first journey I understand that something changed in my head. I was so excited when I sold earrings to my classmates, friends in school and seeing when girls wearing it, I just cannot describe this feeling. It was so excited! And when we earn some money, we together with my sister have got a paper notebook where we wrote everything what we need to bought in our room. I remember when we bought a wonderful tiger rubbish bin. Now when I am told this I think that it was just incredible to bought important stuff in our room instead of bought some candies or toys. Even when we went to the shopping center with my mum I never asked to bought something for me. Because I always knew that we cannot spend a lot of money because we have to buy a food or paid for our bills. I remember that feeling when you saw something in shopping center but you do not say anything to mum because you feel that you are not good or rich enough to buy this. I have to say that it is really hard to remember this. But when I saw these bad days I think I just grow up faster and learn so much about money. My next journey was a little bit successful, maybe because I was an older. I started selling jewelry and women clothes in my town. I have got a Facebook group and I just buying something from eBay or China websites and trying to sell them to my friends or people who liked my group. In the beginning this small business was quite profitable but when I finished a school and started to study in University actually I did not have enough time to do this. But I never forget about my dream and it was more like my passion.
And when I stopped and thought that now will be everything OK, my father’s and my mother’s marriage has become complicated. So long story short I have to take a loan for my studies and I have to earn money for my living in my study town. I remember when I am try to find a job and no one wants to pay a good salary to me because I was a student and I did not have any experience before. I do not say that I did not work anywhere, I worked in factory in my town, I worked in flower shop but these jobs did not put a big plus in my CV. So I decided come back to my passion, one more time I decided to create my own small women clothes business. I used the same Facebook group and started to sell women’s clothes in all of my country. I found suppliers, it has not been a manufacturer it was like a middle man supplier, which have clothes with bigger prices than manufacturers but I have to try it. And yes, I did it. In days, I was in the University and in the evenings I am sell clothes. By myself I packed every order and went to the post office and shipped it. For these moneys I finally could pay for my rent, bought food and when I came back in my origin town I could get some money to my mum or bought some food. Again it was really hard times. We have to stayed together.
The important thing in business is that if you do not reinvest in it than you automatically choose to lose it. So yes, it happens to me again, I just lost my business. I finished University and I have to left everything and moved in UK to my partner. Here I started a new begin. I started to learn English language, improve my social, speaking and writing skills.
From these periods/ journeys I learn so much and I lost so much too, I did not mention here about my grandmother, she was like my mother, she was my strength, she as my teacher in one important word she was everything to me. And yes, she was and now her do not be here anymore. But this story is about my dream and my grandmother left to me all strength that I finally will reach my dream.
Finally, I can tell here about my last journey. I am very responsible, curious, strong and honest person and I always try to do all the best what I can. Now I am a smart women and exactly know what I want to do in this journey. I started from information research, I listen a lot of successful business persons training, I read a lot of books. But those things are not enough to create a successful business. So I made a research and I have a long list of manufacturers who can provide to me a bulk of clothes, also I contacted them for cooperation. I create vision about my own website and even that I create my own brand logo. I learn lot of about marketing, about business advertising. To sum up I have all information and vision how and what I have to do.
And here I just have stopped for a second. However, I realized that by myself to create a profitable business is not a very easy. I got a plan, I study hard but in this world where are a lot of chaos and everyone want to be a popular, a “star”, I just cannot do it alone. I believe that this story reached your heart because I am telling it from my own heart. In the end I just want to say that everyone deserve success. And it is really hard to ask a help hand when you never asked it before and support is the main thing what I am asking here. I strongly believe that I am ready enough to create my last and powerful journey with “Eiba” women clothing stores around the UK. I just need a small help/invest from you. Because I strongly believe that successful people have a lot of power.
