Fashion Suicide: Booming Business with the intensity of Coronavirus (PART 1)

Catchy title right?!?! Now that I’ve got your attention, your business should obtain and keep the attention of others. Everyone is so quick to dive into building a brand without taking care of the essentials…. Mandatory investments that are done properly on the front end, will save you on the back end.

When I first started selling AUTHENTIC luxury goods online, there weren’t many platforms that catered to that specific niche. So my natural instinct, directed me to ebay. No store setup, no fancy name, just the regular account that I had, is what I used.

While being a shopaholic for myself, and significant other, I constantly came across amazing pieces, and returns of designer exclusives in sizes that I didn’t necessarily need, but were desirable and in demand to resell. I provided detailed descriptions including year and season of collection, in addition to original tags, packaging, dust bags, and if purchased for full price- a copy of the receipt.

Everything was fine until I exceeded well over 5 figures in my PayPal account.

Personally what I enjoyed doing at the time wasn’t “business” in my mind. But, I was required to open a business account, which required forming a corporation, obtaining an EIN number, and all the bells and whistles associated with doing “legitimate business”.

Of course this process did not go smoothly.

So to follow up, and learn valuable lessons and what mistakes you can avoid, subscribe below and stay tuned for PART 2.

Outwitting the Devil

In 1938, just after publication of his all-time best-seller Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill revealed that he had broken the Devil’s Code, forcing him to confess his secrets. The resulting manuscript – Outwitting the Devil – proved so controversial, it was hidden for more than 70 years. Now, Sharon Lechter brings us this important book, annotating and editing it for a contemporary audience. Using his legendary ability to get to the root of human potential, Hill digs deep to identify the greatest obstacles we face in reaching our personal goals – including fear, procrastination, anger, and jealousy – as tools orchestrated by the Devil himself. These hidden methods of control can lead us to ruin, and Hill reveals the seven principles of good that will allow us to finally triumph over them and succeed. 

Fascinating, provocative, and empowering, Outwitting the Devil shows how to create your own path to success, harmony, and fulfillment in an age of uncertainty and fear.

A lot of this was common sense, but sometimes you need a morality refresher to put things into perspective at times. A little nudge from the universe or your subconscious never hurts.
