I was doing really well with being consistent with #NaBloPoMo until this weekend. I do have a really good really reason for slipping. I spent the entire weekend working on a “newish” project. Allow me to introduce you to Ven & Rose. Or maybe I should say reintroduce?
Almost three months ago (August 19th), I introduced you to my Apparel line Naturally Inspired Collection. It was something that I had wanted to do for a long time, but I kept procrastinating on because of a million little excuses, and fear.
I used to be one of those people who had to have everything “perfect” before making a move. This year I intentionally embraced the “done is better than perfect” and “start before you’re ready” mantras. So I’m not saying not to have a plan, but sometimes you truly have to take the leap. It was scary and nerve-rattling at times, but the rewards were worth it.
When I launched my Apparel line back in August I literally picked a name and forced myself to put it out there so I could not use, “I don’t really have a name I like” excuse. However, I knew that I wanted a more meaningful name based on my vision for the brand, but at the time I could not find the right one.
Fast forward to this weekend when I finally completed the “rebrand”. After lots of names choices, thinking and prayer, the Naturally Inspired Collection is now “Ven & Rose”.
The names Ven & Rose are very special to both my husband & I. The short version is that the brand is now renamed in honor of my grandmother and my mother in law. Read more about Ven & Rose.
Today I want to encourage you to start before you’re ready.
Your turn: Do you usually wait for everything to be “perfect” before starting a project?
