I think it's pretty cool and important that other entrepreneurs share their knowledge, because that's exactly what knowledge is, sharing what you know to help others. The Glitter Plan: How We Started Juicy Couture for $200 and Turned It into a Global Brand did just that. The lovely ladies Pam & Gela got right to the business side of things with the start of Juicy Couture. They shared their personal experiences along with how they deal with them. What stuck out the most, was showing that it wasn't an overnight success. They previously had a denim line, Travis Jeans and a maternity line. Both businesses helped the global brand Juicy Couture in huge ways. From designing to knowing where to put the clothes.
They also touched on the subject of gifting. For me this was definitely important. I thought gifting was always going on. Gifting: Giving press/celebrities a sample of your product, before it hits shelves.
What I Re-Learned:
- Everything is a process.
- I'm not the only one into GLITTER.
- Research helps, but don't let it get you off target.
- Do it your own way.
- Being good at one thing is a GREAT start, add the other stuff after you get a good flow going.
My Next Steps:
- My Gucci Mane wallpaper & turning my apartment into a showroom for other designers like myself.
- Reading more on interior design styles.
- Poppin' for Pimp in the library.
