Everyone I've ever met has their own dream of working for themselves in some fashion. They want something sustainable and something they can be proud of. Were this mentality falls apart for most people just really comes down to one thing: consistency.
The key to being successful really comes down to your ability to stay determined and to find a way that works for you. For me, I have always had a hard time staying focused and consistent when it comes to putting in the work to make something succeed. Most times, I would find myself chasing instant gratification rather than long term success, leading me to give up and try something else. This mindset is not a mindset you want to have to reach your goals. This mindset really changed for the better for me in June 2019, one month before the creation of Hiraeth Clique.
June 2019 for me was the turning point that lead to where I am today. During this time, I went through a very trying time mentally. It was a time that I really had to evaluate myself, reflect upon my personal goals, and determine what I need to do to be where I want to be personally, to stop half-assing and get it done.
Starting your own brand will take a lot of work. However, you don't have to have a lot of money to get going. I feel that the misconception that you have to have money to start up a business tends to scare people away from an opportunity that might have changed their life if they just tried it. You can not be afraid to jump into an opportunity you care about, like I always say, no risk no 'rrari, baby. When first starting your brand, consistency is key. You need to figure out what you're gonna name your brand, what your aesthetic and niche will be, and from what I've noticed, if you don't have branding or a logo, it shouldn't affect you too much if you know how to play your cards. I also recommend finding a schedule you can consistently follow when it comes to posting and you will also need to figure out your personal strategy on how to get your brand out there.
I hope this small part in starting your own brand/business motivates you guys to continue your hard work and stay motivated! I promise you consistency and staying hungry will only lead to results. I will be making a part 2 going into further details on networking, making a website, etc. Until then, I hope you guys enjoy and do make sure to leave feedback! Thank you for the support!
