Beaucoup de détermination et un brin d'insouciance

A lot of determination and a bit of recklessness

A lot of determination and a bit of recklessness

It's been a year now since I officially opened the store. Throughout this year, I have regularly been told that I am brave. I have also often been asked how I managed to start my project. And by the same token, there are more and more articles on entrepreneurship and many are precisely about the values ​​necessary to be an entrepreneur and the main characteristics and qualities necessary.

I'm no different from the others, I'm the ordinary girl next door, I'm not rocket science, what I have is determination! When I finally had the illumination (the idea of ​​what I wanted to do), I simply started my project. My project was only a basic project and who says project does not necessarily mean outcome. I read a lot, looked up resources, and set about building my business plan based on a template that was pretty comprehensive. I was thus able to reflect on each of the stages of what would slowly come to life. It's been a year of ups and downs. Excitements and deep discouragements. I sometimes thought it was dead, but I found solutions and managed to get over it.

Through all of this, I believe that what mainly allowed me to get to the end was carelessness! I think what people call courage, in my case it's really recklessness. I don't know if that's exactly the right word, but above all, don't be (too) afraid of what will happen the next day. Throughout my career, I did not have this concern, giving up my career was not synonymous with insecurity, there was always Plan B! That I would have invented as...!

I think my personality sometimes plays tricks on me since I have a lot of anxiety, but this adventure didn't make me anxious at all. Strangely, the anxiety attacks that I suffered from regularly for many years have all but disappeared! I don't remember the last time one came to sneak in early in the evening. Maybe my body and my head are in tune with what I'm doing now. Last year when I opened the shop something inside of me told me this was what I had to do and it would be fine, I had faith in my project.

A lot of determination, a bit of recklessness, that was my magic recipe for getting started and doing what I love! You, your magic recipe to be happy, do you know it?
