Ankara Bangles and Making money from your passion!

by - Wednesday, December 14, 2016
Hello, My Sweet Loves! 💗💗💗

I'm so happy to have you here again!
So how have you been?

I hope your life hasn't been on a roller coaster like mine. Between blogging, yoga (Yes ooh!I am a yogi now. Will talk about it in a future post), spending time with myself and making Ankara bangles, it has not been easy. But God has been Kind.

This is the end of the year and I am all about paving my way to my dream life! In a previous post, I talked about setting healthy goals in order to eat healthier.

And just like staying healthy I need to build my career to access this dream life. We all go to school dreaming of what we are going to become. I won't pretend I had a passion for one particular thing. I admired a lot of professions and till about secondary school where a hidden passion started showing up.

My lovely grandma had (and still has) a sewing machine at home and that was my favourite place for adventure. After breaking countless sewing needles and getting thread entangled in the machine uncountable times (and I got scolded for that of course), I finally learnt how to paddle and sew smoothly.

I then became the cut 'am nail 'am tailor (meaning - cut and nail tailor) at home. I felt so happy to modify my clothes and sew new clothes for myself despite the fact that I was not good at cutting out the fabric.

With time I realised that I wanted to be part of the fashion business. I didn't really know how. I had no machine and had abandoned my sewing skills since I left home to the university.

Three years ago I decided to stop waiting for everything to be right before I start making my mark in the fashion world. With 5000 francs CFA, I bought some fabric and Fab Bantu was born (at the time, I called it Outfit. But that is a story for another day)! 

After making a few designs and taking it to a tailor, I made plans to use part of my allowance and money from any sales to grow the business.

Yes, I was in business and still am today! It's been rocky because it has been a combination of school and business. At the same time, I have learnt a lot and have grown in terms of experience.
