We'd like to give a big thank you to Nushu Network for featuring Armore Collective and our founder Greg Perez in their blog. In the post Greg shared her thoughts about starting a fashion brand, her journey as a women entrepreneur, and some tips for aspiring women entrepreneurs. Here are key takeaways and snippets from the blog post
- Watch for messages from the universe and patterns in your life to point you in the direction of what you are called to do. Combine different passions and interests to find the value you bring that arises from your unique perspective.
- It is only natural to want beauty in our lives. Indeed, we need it. If you want to start something in beauty or fashion and wonder if it isn't shallow or frivolous, remember beauty is one of the only things that lasts because it transcends culture, location, and time, and unites us in a sense of wonder and joy.
Once on your entrepreneurial journey, it's important to research, reflect, and keep your goal in mind.
When times get tough, as they will, it’s important to know where you are going and why. Entrepreneurship is about helping someone address something that is missing or annoying or disappointing in their lives. Who is waiting for your solution?
The journey is just as important as the success because of the things you learn, the people you meet, and the inner transformation that is happening within you.
Know who to take advice from and when to take advice but always have courage in your convictions. Never let anyone tell you that you can’t do it. Surround yourself with people who will support your journey.
We don’t only need entrepreneurs, we need mentors, partners at home, and champions across the value chain. We need incubation programs and networks for women. We need women angel investors and fund managers.
Now, more than ever, is the time for women entrepreneurs. We need to come together and support each other. We need to bring our perspectives, our mindsets, and our hearts into the world to help make it more inclusive and sustainable and build a better future.
