I have wanted to start, own and run a business since I could walk.
Growing up, little girls in my primary school playground played “families” with a mum, a dad and some kids. They would act out the day to day of being in a family.
I played the “business” game – I ran a mini empire.
Even my barbies had businesses. They were rich, drove nice cars, went to work in killer outfits (some i made myself) and most importantly dominated.
They were powerful, hard, boss babes that didn’t tolerate mediocrity – Pretty fierce for a Barbie hey?
It’s something that’s always been within me and there have been many points throughout the years I have come very close to making the jump and starting a business, though I haven’t until now because of fear.
No one wants to fail, no one plans to fail, if there was a guarantee that you would succeed, everyone would do it but not everyone should.
This year I decided to launch a swimwear label called LX SWIM. I am still scared, have moments of doubt (multiple times per hour) and have become a champion over-thinker but my hunger far surpasses my fear.
Something in my bones tells me I must do this, even if it fails, I absolutely, unequivocally must do this.
So I am.
I want to share everything with you – this is new for me and no matter what happens, its going to be exciting.
Stay tuned x
