When you start a journey of starting a business it feels like this paralyzing sense of wtf am I doing!!! Then I would always came here to express the thoughts going they my head and this was my way to release all the anxiety, failure, and pure doubt. Yet here I am 2 years later to not only reflect on as I am going to refer to them as my “Rookie Years” I can’t explain to my friends or family how or why I know I was meant for something great and I refused to settle and not going to sugarcoat it. I was scared to fail and have everyone tell me I told you so. Then starting at square one. Here I am tho self taught thanks to quarantine and doing what I’m known for doing quite well. Diving in head first. LOL and that’s what I did and here I am still trying to figure out balance between working on my brand and taking on the mom role. It hasn’t been easier but never expected it to be and I have shed tears, had sleepless nights letting my fears take over. Then bam quarantine happened and I had my step dad who I was already in business with and mom moved to Austin and we opened our door to them to help them get their house built LOL well let’s just say the first 3-4 months were the hardest times that l had dealt with in my life. It is also why I have actually taken steps in the uncomfortable need to (throw up/ cry like a baby) get done to have a successful business. I have never in a million years thought I would be going live via any platform Bc I have the worse case of stage freight. Yet here I am…. you got it I am a content creator and go live 2 times of the week if nothing crazy is going on, started a YouTube channel which I am still trying to get the hang of and learning studio, equipment and still mailing posting on eBay to bring in more then revenue but a community of collectors, investor’s. And try to always show a token of our appreciation. Thank you lord for blessing me with such a great support system and give me the opportunity to get the business off the ground. I have learned and put in action on all the knowledge I have taken in and I do my best to constantly give my best to the latest and greatest venture KG COLLECTIBLES. Through the good bad and not so pretty I am proud of how I have literally jumped over some hurdles I would never imagine even giving a second thought about and that doesn’t include being the mother of a 15 year old daughter and 2 year old son!! It’s been one hell of a year but I’ll get there and I’m not asking to be this full blown million dollar success story. I just want to live a happy life and not compromise my time for money Bc life is too short and money isn’t everything but it does help to provide the comforts of your personal idea of success but most importantly it is so that one day we both can pay it forward and have the pleasure of giving someone whose shoes i once wore into the opportunity to live their dream!!! Like the fairy godmother in Disney’s Cinderella says “A dream is a wish your heart makes.” “Where this is kindness, there is goodness. And where this goodness, there is magic.” “No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream that you wish can come true.” And so I must keep believing!!
I will achieve my aspirations and I will always stay humble; pay it forward!! Yours Truly- Gina Marie #thisstuffcantbemadeup
