Happy Wednesday everyone!
I know, I know the post is super late today but I am still on cloud 9 thinking about how amazing this week has been.
The #CommunityPortraitPopUp event I was apart of on Saturday went better than I could have ever expected. I’m super proud about how far my vision for Of the Wild has come in less than a year. I am more than confident it will go beyond my wildest dreams. I sold almost all my plants and I had customers ask do I have a store? Not yet but one day. After I moving into my first place in Berkeley, I started collecting plants and I would always think “Where are the black owned plant nurseries? Where are the black owned thrift stores? Where are the black owned apothecaries?”💡My goal is to build a natural lifestyle brand housing not only plants but thrifted clothing, natural hair and natural skincare products. During the #CommunityPortraitPopUp my boyfriend turned to me and said “wow you’re doing exactly what you said you were going to do. You are supplying people with plants” 😊 #Proud .
P.S. remember this post when I make all this a reality.
Something else I am super excited about is my first day of work. I had a really smooth first day, everything went awesome. I love my new role, the atmosphere is very inviting, spacious, with lots of green plants and smiling faces. This company has so many perks! It honestly feels like a breath of fresh air working in a healthy environment. I am excited about the future and what’s to come.
In honor of my first day of work I wanted to leave you guys with a link to a really dope article filled with workplace affirmations: http://www.joblogues.com/affirmations-for-women-at-work/
