Sometimes you just gotta take a leap.
I figured this would be the best way to start these blog posts. How I started this company and everything I have ever done in my life was by doing things I didn't know the outcome of. Would I fall flat on my face? Would I lose all of my money? How do I even start? The answer to these questions is you just don't know.
I had been thinking about making clothes for a few years at this point. I was wearing custom beanies for a long time. People always asked me how they could buy them but I didn't have an answer. One day I just decided, "Screw it!" and I sort of blindly threw $1000.00 into a few different color beanies. It was time to start Amaculent Apparel for real!
I had been doing research online for a few months but now it was time to put it all into action. I reached out to multiple graphic designers, but even though I was paying, I couldn't find anyone to make the images in my head, so I got Adobe Illustrator and started messing around. Next thing you know, I am a graphic designer. Next thing you know, I designed this website. Next thing you know, I launched the site.
Don't get me wrong this is still very much a work in progress. I 100% lost money on those beanies. There are going to be many ups and downs moving forward but failures are lessons learned. People told me that I was rushing and that I needed to slow down, but I just knew that I needed to do it. If I didn't start and tried to make everything perfect it was never going to happen.
I’m not saying to go blindly into a situation. Do your research. Be as prepared as you can, but most importantly move towards your goals. Don't stay stuck. You will find your way. I am sure of it.
