Philanthropist to Stylist
I’ve worked in nonprofit for more than a decade and after much soul searching I decided it was time for a change. I opened Honor You, an image consulting business that focused on helping women and specializes in plus sizes. Since starting the company, I’ve gained steady momentum and have since been featured on Yahoo!
Tip 1: Know What You Want
It’s easy to say you don’t like where you are but do you know where you want to be? Take the time, do some soul searching and be outrageous. If there were no restrictions what would you want to do? Where would you want to be?
Tip 2: Do The Work
Research, research, research — Whether it is starting your own business or moving into a different industry or field. Assess your skills and figure out how you can use them to pursue your passion whatever it is. And if you don’t have a solid background take the time to look into getting the experience and/or education you need.
Tip 3: JUMP!
All of your experiences have prepared you to do and be who it is you were created to be. We can plan so much that we forget to implement. After you’ve done the research its time to make the decision and take action.
