Finally got around to writing my first blog. please excuse my grammar as I am writing this on my phone. the whole purpose of starting this blog was to write about a multitude of things from business, to events in life, to amazing things I find. I really don't have an agenda here.
Let's start with business, my passion. Q4 has been amazing for us so far and we are seeing some steady growth. recently expanded our jewelry brand into the UK and I must say it's been very nice. our partners in the UK are very easy to work with and allow us to focus our attention on expansion. we are also trying to enter the south east market, mainly India but there are a few hurdles that we need to cross. currently our payment system is very limited and we are switching to another one but they require a lot of information and the business must be registered in India. this means I might have to go India and set it up which is not really a bad thing. I love India and there is no sweeter scent then Mumbai after a rainy day. so that's what's going on there. i am always looking into creating more brands but more on that later.
As you may know, I am also in school. doing my mbet at uwo. it's been a terrific experience so far and my classmates are very business focused. I am actually struggling very hard to manage both work and school. hence I have no social life! there are some exciting competitions coming up so looking forward to that. I really like my marketing class as many of the topics help me on expanding and growing my business. I also have an opportunity to start my own business or another pillar of my business. I have an idea but don't want to talk about it in too much details. it's mainly focused around centralization of data, major retailers, affiliated programs and a lot of coding! schools great, only issue is the commute is really long but I guess that gives me time to work on my blog. I also think I am the youngest in my class which is great because I can learn a lot from the experience the students bring to the program.
I feel that the days are getting shorter! hours are passing quickly and there is so much work left to do. I feel to pause time and savour the moment and just enjoy it a bit.
I will continue to write more and hopefully write one blog per week. thank you for reading this, means a lot to me!
