WELCOME TO MY WORLD
I'm generally not a fan of lengthy blog posts, so I apologize in advance! However I thought It be interesting to write an interview style post to give followers some insight on my day to day norm as a young entrepreneur, emerging designer, professional makeup artist and blogger. Enjoy!
How do you start your day?
As expected things do get hectic when simultaneously running all aspects of my fashion brand, Jade Alycia Inc. and beauty business, The Glamourous Touch in addition to writing for my fashion & beauty blog, The Unjaded Journal. Every morning when waking up I check my emails, troll through my social media, glance quickly at my task list for the day and one by one work on checking them off my list. More often than not things don’t run as smoothly as I make it sound. More urgent items do come up or I may decide to prioritize another task first, so there's always a constant fluctuation in my work flow. In spite of that my overarching goal is to always meet my deadlines if not right on time, early.
How do you enjoy spending the less hectic moments in your schedule?
The moments when things are a little less hectic I use to project future goals, network and learn. Continuously working on mastering new skill sets is a quality I really admire about myself. After all it’s a challenge to stay constantly trendy, fresh, fun and exciting year after year. It’s been said, "in fashion one minute you’re in and the next you’re out." - Tim Gun
What's the most challenging part of being a young business woman?
I think the most challenging part of being a business woman for me is trial and error because there is so much uncertainty involved, it’s literally like a gabble. I’m the type of person that I like to have everything planned out to a T extremely far in advance and many times trial and error scenarios don’t give you that extended time to plan and even if they do you won’t know the outcome until it happens. All in all I truly love what I do and wouldn’t change it for the world.
What's your on going schedule look like?
On an on going basis I am working on anything from styling & directing photoshoots, scheduling product launches to website designing just to name a few. Essentially I’m continuously working on the ins and outs of making my brands cohesively look and feel as professional as possible. Whether that means making daily edits to the live site or simply keeping my followers posted on what I‘ve been up to it's collectively all about branding.
Do you offer any of your branding or marketing services to others?
Another outlet I enjoy working on during my limited downtime is helping others build their brand by providing similar services to young entrepreneurs and artists. Depending on the needs of the client I will customize and offer a branding package to those who seek one on one coaching on how to get their business the desired response from it's target market.
