Whewww! What a weekend.... But I'm not going to complain, this is what I signed up for. Anywho, on Sunday I attended the Fashionably Noted Brunch sponsored by Sapphire Inc PR. I was excited to see that Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista and Kameka Johnson of Kami Cosmetics along with NaChera "Cherry" Brown and Toni Washington as the featured panelist.
Since I'm transitioning from my 9-5 to full-time entrepreneurship I need all the advise and tips I can get. Each of these ladies had some great advice to offer.
- Cherry said that if you're really serious about your business, you need to develop a business plan and get SWOT Analysis.
- Marie Denee's advise was to get a domain name. There's nothing worst then coming up with your brand name only to find out that the domain name isn't available.
- With the different trends of makeup, Kami added that getting a good bronzer for your skin tone is important. And that extreme contouring should be banished forever.
- The most crucial piece to being successful is to find your voice and be consistent - Tony
Of course a lot more was said, however, these were the gems that spoke to me.
I know, I know you were wondering what I wore. This skirt was E-VER-Y-Thing and more. It was kinda a lot to deal with, but - it was all worth it.
Top, Belt, Skirt, Handbang - Thrifted
Scarf - H&M
Shoes - Charlotte Russe
P.S. Always! Always Believe in your brand!!!!!!
