Resurrection Sunday

I started making flower crowns because I’m picky, I know what I like the only problem was that I was not finding it in stores (and not at a reasonable price). So there started Get Crowned. I have always loved flowers and creating and/or customizing so I mixed the two.

Soon, my weekends became packed with flower crown orders and custom request. I vended my crowns and even created a Big Cartel site to allow people from other states to get their hands on my crowns. At one point, my crown even ventured to England, how cool is that!

Then I became overwhelmed with growth. A rough (but also beautiful) patch hit me, new job-but my car engine blew. I finally buckled down and applied to Graduate School for Public Relations-I got in but the school was in hour away and still had no car. Needless to say, Get Crowned took a back seat and I lost all passion for the project. I set my Big Cartel site in maintenance mode and completely ignored my Get Crowned Social Media pages. As a PR professional, I definitely knew better. Consistency is the major key to success!

Recently I have found myself at a crossroads, that new job I had about 2 years ago I now dread going to-it pays the bills. I finished school with Honors; I was also awarded by Lambda Pi Eta for my academic excellence. But now I have an extra bill called School loans. OMG, and my longtime boyfriend took a job in Miami leaving me alone.

Now overwhelmed for the wrong reasons and alone I was seeking guidance on how to move through my life, basically how to turns lemons into Lemonade. People would still ask about Get Crowned and I would just say “I’m just not passionate about it anymore.

I read something that makes me think… Think hard about the turn of events I now found myself going through 

But I was just scared, scared that it would actually work out. I am now re-launching and re-branding Get Crowned under my own rules. This is so exciting to me. This is still a learning process and something that challenges me which is all I look for in a career. Stick with me on this journey and let’s Slay together, k?
