My 3 Biggest Mistakes as a Fashion Designer 2

Click here to listen to the podcast >>

I don’t think I can even count as high as the number of mistakes I made with my clothing line and retail store. I mean, I was GREEN when I started! Trial and error was just a way of life for me back then and it really cost me — in terms of time, money, and energy.

I have to admit that it was pretty tough to come up with the top 3 mistakes (so many to choose from, ya know?) but here they are…

  • Fudging my cost sheets so I didn’t have to see the real numbers
  • Being a wuss about my pricing because I didn’t have the confidence I needed
  • Working like a dog without planning so I often worked on the wrong projects

Can you relate?

I hope this little confession helps you! I’d love to see you learn from my experience and use it to make your business stronger and, well, less hard.
