So You Want To Be A Rock N Roll Star
The lyrics to “So You Want To Be A Rock N Roll Star” by The Byrds crossed my mind the other day. While they are laced with sarcasm, there is a loose checklist of what one has to do to be successful. The song was written for the potential rock stars, for the people who realized and embraced their ambitions.
Whatever your goals are, your mission, your passion, I can tell you they can be had. There is no criteria meaning, where you come from has no relevance, what you look like, starting, restarting - - if you want it, you will get it. Starting any kind of business requires tenacity, endurance and dedication but the fashion industry is that much more challenging because it is so competitive and complex on the smallest scale. I feel we never really know what we're getting into regardless of how many hours we put into a plan but we know with the bumps will come a moment of relief and that moment gives you the greatest joy one can experience and of course the flow once again becomes the ups and downs.
The idea of creating Coco & Cyd started around 6 years ago. Having always worked for other people in the fashion industry gave me the skills needed to scout trends and understand logistics. However, we learn the business of doing business when we're in the trenches, which is when the lessons make more sense. What drives success are entrepreneurial skills and a commitment to running a business. Being in business is a difficult process because there are so many layers one has to take responsibility for. For some this is exciting and energizing. So I end with, regardless of what happens over the course of the day, never take you're eyes off you're goal.
Six years later, Coco & Cyd will debut their women's wear collection on September 11th, 2017.
Friends, I look forward to seeing you there.
