Boutique Sales Chic- Year Two and Beyond!


Hey yall Hey and Happy Monday! Been spending lots of time lately thinking about my business Boutique Sales Chic and decided I wanted to give u a really honest look at what completing your first year of business means and the oh so important what's next. Get ready my people cause this will be a dose of REAL I'm not sure you're ready for! In the wise words of my girl Lauryn Hill, Fantasy is what they want but reality is what they need and today you're going to get nothing but Reality!

One of the first things you hear when starting your own business is to go ahead and quit your day job and allow your dreams and passion to propel you in starting said business. What's not spoke about as often is the fact that it takes money  for your business to grow and honestly lots of it. It takes money to buy or produce your product, it takes money to market your product, it takes money to keep your passion filled business up and running and it takes money to pay the bills while you're running your business. What I'm saying is that while it's inspiring and motivating to be able to say you left it all on the table to be able to run your own business it's expensive as hell and if you plan on running your own business you need to be prepared for this!

While I was never bold enough to actually leave my paying 9-5 in pursuit of my dreams of one day owning my own business, once I was in the position where I was let go of my job for the past 10 years I jumped at the chance of being my own boss, making my own rules, and doing it my way! I had the if I build it they will come mentality and no one was going to tell me otherwise! I had a lot to learn and honestly and truly the only way I was going to learn it was to just dive in and take it day by day. Experience is absolutely the best teacher!

I have even bigger goals for my business heading into my second year. I now know it takes, hard work, dedication, a willingness to constantly be learning, and funds to meet those goals. My aspirations for my business are taking me places I never thought I'd find myself. I spent my last 8 months working a position I absolutely hated and just recently I found myself in these street going door to door trying to push AT&T to homeowners. Although that specific position only lasted a day it made me realize just how focused I am on growing my business and being unapologetic about what I will and will not do to make it a success. Never in a million years thought this would be my reality but I'm proud to say that every sale, every satisfied customer, every day that I learn something new let's me know I'm doing it the right way and will just continue grinding! After all, Rome wasn't built in a day right?

Tyler Perry's Acrimony- A Must See!

Happy Monday FABulites! How's everyone doing this fine morning, How was your weekend. I celebrated my 43rd birthday this weekend and oh what a celebration it was! One of my birthday requests this year was just to spend the day doing some of the things I love most and one of those things was going to the movies. This time I decided to check out my best friend in my head (Taraji P Henson) and Big Brother (Tyler Perry) new movie Acrimony and let me just tell you I am beyond happy that I did!

Movies/ Blogging/ Lifestyle

From the previews I thought I had Acrimony all figured out but boy was I wrong! I thought I was going to see yet another movie about an angry black woman scorned yet again by the man she loves but in reality, Acrimony is so much more. In this movie, the brilliant Tyler Perry dove into the reality that comes along with us being willing to do whatever it takes to make our dreams a reality and the people who support us through it.

Not a day goes by lately without someone encouraging us to make our dreams a reality by any means necessary but what's not discussed as often are those who sacrifice the most to assist us in making sure those dreams become reality and also what we go through if and when those dreams never happen. This movie forced us to ask the question, How much are we willing to go through for the dreams of our lovers and the dynamics we experience once those dreams become a reality. Kinda like a be careful what you ask for because you just might get it combined with a is there a limit to my dream support.

The acting, the writing, the scenes, Amazing! Don't just think you know what this movie has in store, check it out as quickly as possible. I know lots of people give Tyler Perry flack for some of his movies but I assure you this one is a MUST SEE!

Have you checked out Tyler Perry's Acrimony? If so share your thoughts with me below in the comments. If not, What are you waiting for?

Doing What I love with Miguel and DJ Khaled!


TGIF FABulites! How was everyone's work week? Mine was pretty good but did anyone notice how quickly the week went by? Maybe it was just mine but I think that's a pretty good way to show you're having a great week! One of the things I promised myself in the beginning of the year was that I was going to include doing more of the things I really love into my life and this week has definitely been an example of that, Allow me to elaborate!
