* * * Be patient and stay strong! Miracles don't happen over night, you build them up by small wonders every day. Curiosity, fascination, uncertainty, awe and doubt, are just a few of those wonders happening in your mind and heart - leading the way to greatness! Make sure you listen to your gut and be your Rock Star! * * * Listen To Your Gut, Small Wonder, Lead The Way, You Rock, Stay Strong, Listening To You, Curiosity, Mindfulness, Wisdom

* * * Oh yasss it's Monday! A fresh start of the new week, and here in Zurich Switzerland it's Sunny and the mountains look fresh! Get yourself some help this week, maybe on something small, maybe on something long term. I have someone helping me with all the website / online / seo works, something that I clearly don't master. I rather spend 80% of my time on the things that I'm really really good at, and develop the others at my own pace. Enjoy this week! * * * Business Fashion, Corporate Fashion, Dead Fish, Power Energy, Ask For Help, New Week, Start Up Business, No Time For Me, Things To Think About

* * * Equality is humanity - equality in gender, believes, religion, love, support, greatness! I love being a woman, I love being human! And with a supporting partner at home who constantly drives me to new heights and can't wait to be a stay at home daddy one day, how to complain! Love yourself in being freaking awesome ♡ * * *   #IWD #beboldforchange Love You, Let It Be, My Love, Freaking Awesome, Start Up Business, Religion, Wisdom, How To Get, Photo And Video

* * * Starting a label or business, means breathing, living and managing all, day in day out! Ensure that all you do makes you feel proud. Pride is very powerful, gives you loads of energy and makes you shine! Pride is not generated through only large accomplishment - it's in crossing off your to-do list, it's shipping out your first order, it's sipping a coffee in the sun just because you can! Find your Pride, be awesome! * * * First Order, Make You Feel, Finding Yourself, Pride, Label, Wisdom, Sun, Photo And Video, Feelings

* * * Many of you are in the phase of finding suppliers, connecting with partners, searching investors, and maybe even hiring people to strengthen & grow your business. Remember that 70% of the whole hiring process is based on your gut. When your gut says 'YES' and the other 30% delivers strong skills versus the tasks ahead - a match made in heaven! You both will be satisfied, win-win situation  * * *   #connecting #gut #winwin #strategy #fashionpreneur #strength #startupbusiness #corporate… Start Up Business, Growing Your Business, Win Win Situation, Hiring Process, Made In Heaven, Match Making, Winwin, Investors, Searching

* * * I've always told students & interns to be a sponge - open to knowledge as it will come in the most unexpected ways. This morning I visited STF (Schweizer Textilfachschule) and had a great share of mind about fashion education, the interesting programs they offer and how they prep their students for future growth - personally & professionally. Stay open for whatever comes your way, stay curious, it will be spectacular! * * *   #stf #schweizertextilfachschule #fashionschool...

* * * When I was a young enthusiastic 'rather arrogant' career tiger with a sexy title (Oh I envied titles) I learned the hard way that I could not grow all by myself. It was not until I found a true mentor in a friend who thought me to grow professionally I had to grow personally. Many mentors throughout my life have influenced me in the person I'm today, and they came in different shapes and forms - mostly combined with a bottle of wine.

* * * 2nd Prototype on your doorstep YASSSS.. but wait, that's not the color you confirmed last skype call with your trusted supplier! Unfortunately, your Dark Blue is not everyone's Dark Blue! Make sure you lock these things down in writing (even after a call) and preferably with a color code, lingo differences can cause funky mix-ups!

* * * An entrepreneur in fashion figures out rather quickly that the saying 'Fashion never sleeps' is true, it actually never sleeps! You signed up for a 24/7 cycle of information, inspiration, love and true exhaustion. It's a learning curve into structuring your days so, that you don't have to actually 'work' 24/7 - and have an actual social life! At Koai we believe that it's mostly not in the 'what', it's in the 'how'! One way to keep my cool is Yoga & Meditation - and today I've had the… Keep My Cool, Fashion Figures, Never Sleep, Yoga Meditation, Entrepreneur, Believe, Wisdom, Photo And Video, Inspired

* * * Scratch doubt and fear out of your daily calendar, and replace this by confidence in yourself, your brand and your skills! When you map out a short but strong strategy and lead your business accordingly, you know what to do and confidence is there instantly to guide you. A strategy is not a myth it's a tool, and when implemented correctly your road-map to growth! It's all in you, you just have to write it down! * * *   #confidence #strategy #fashionpreneur #strength #startupbusiness...
