I know this week is crazy for most of you -- finishing samples, finishing back to school distribution and getting ready to head off to your next rounds of trade shows. In fashion, you always try to pre-plan, but when making your plans, just know there will be some last minute emergency. While stressful at the time, you have to learn to love the process -- that's what makes this business fun.
Sounds crazy? Not really if you think about all the time we spend at work and dedicated to our jobs. Remember, life is all of the moments that we are here on this planet -- not just weekends (or when we are not at work.) If you are not passionate about what you do (and don't look forward to Mondays ) fashion may not be the right industry for you. As we have discussed previously, to succeed in this business, you need determination, grit, belief in your moral compass, ear-plugs to drown out the jerks and naysayers and stamina.
Ok, enough preaching from me today. Hope are a little bit inspired and ready to tackle the hard, but rewarding work in front of you.
