Over the break my beautiful sister and I were talking about Raglan Guld and what direction I want to take it. She asked the big question...........What are you passionate about?......My answer was without hesitation.......LIFE!!!!
So that brings me to a dilemma at the beginning of my new year. Should I be spending hours on designs and developing new ideas that I have sketched in my little black book? Should I be scouring the internet for new fabrics from designers all over the world? Should I be creating marketing and business plans to tell the world what I do and how I do it? The problem is......I'm not sure I'm ready yet!!! Does that make me a poor business person or does that make me HUMAN?
See my life is....I guess...like everyone's.....FULL!! I support Dave in his business, organizing Finns needs is a business of its own and Asha is still....well....small. So this year I am going to allow Raglan Guld to grow organically. I LOVE making pants, it's the only thing around here that is just for ME. I would love to see my pants in magazines, in shops and on a couple of famous bums.......that can all come......when the opportunity arises......WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT!!
Personally and professionally I am fully aware of my privileged position. Dave does a wonderful job supporting this family, laying one brick after another. Currently the pressure is off for me to return to full time work and we are both very grateful for the supplementary income Raglan Guld brings. So for the next 2 years while Asha still needs me at home I will just keep plodding along...enjoying the flow... I will keep learning, growing and developing Raglan Guld....in my own time. So is there a rush?.........NO.....to be honest I don't think there is. xx
